Review of Dyme-a-Duzin Gig at The Barfly, Camden
A quiet Monday night in Camden was livened up by Brooklyn emcee Dyme-a-Duzin performing upstairs at the Barfly. Dymez performed for an hour in a low key, intimate show, it took the crowd a little time to get going, but once the more known Dymez tracks came round the room was buzzing to the sounds coming from this young up and coming emcee. The highlight of the night was the final track, ‘Swank Sinatra’, with Dymez rapping the whole track in the absence of the other artists that feature on the track. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plt4uUagCXs
Both ‘New Brooklyn’ and ‘Wake up free’ got great receptions from the crowd, and most left with the feeling that the next time Dymez graces our shores with his talent that the proximity and intimacy of this show will be impossible to repeat. I think a show that showcases new talent emerging in the game is a good thing, personally I think these type of artists would benefit from doing collective shows supporting more established artists, with Grand Master Flash and Big Daddy Kane both performing in London next week at the legendary Jazz Café Camden these shows would have been ideal. I’d like to see a show put together later this year with the likes of The Underachievers, Joey Bada$$ and other members of the Pro Era crew all performing, it’s just a shame the late Capital Steez can’t be considered for a potential show too.
Anyone who was there let me know what you thought.
