Passenger of the Month in April 2019: Liquid & Maniac
Slogan, motto, album title & label.
For their new album „The Gaudi is Real“, Liquid & Maniac from Regensburg, South Germany combine bavarian-slang raps with hard 808 basses to create a unique modern hip hop & trap sound. Their music is a mix between Gaudi and Gaudi. On one hand the gaudi known as turn-up and having fun, but on the other hand the gaudi that can be described as a protest or being loud to adress a topic that may not be so fun. An outstanding production, musically progressive and lyrically on point.
The Gaudi is simply real.
Just as real as the feature-guests on the LP. „Meine Leid“ is a song with currently one of the most interesting austrian rappers, Crack Ignaz. „Hampelmänner“ is a neckbreaking banger on which they got Roger Rekless, Munich´s freestyle beast, to join them. For the song „Depp Du“, they met up with bavarian icon Haindling to make a remix of his classic 80s song „Du Depp“, on which they criticise a social shift to the right and racist ideologies. To mix it up even more, they produced a jodel-rap song with D´Raith Schwestern and combined heavy bass with bavarian folk music.
Another musical highlight is „Flohmarkt“, an ode to real coolness and a middle-finger to the fake it to make it mentality.
