After the release of his EP “Oasis Mecanic” last May, Tcheep strikes again with his track “Opium Song”.
While waiting for the release of “Imbéciles Heureux”, an album in collaboration with Liqid which will be released in December, the Lyon-based producer drops another Oriental Trap bomb to celebrate the end of the summer. A sprawling producer, Tcheep has made his MPC his favourite pet. As much influenced by producers such as Alchemist or Beat Butcha as by Death metal, Tcheep develops a career built around a simple principle: hyperactivity.
Because, like the Charlie of the Rap Game, he is hidden in the background of a lot of projects. First of all as co-beatmaker of the group ‘Les Gourmets’ (with Bonetrips) with whom he accumulated more than 100 concert dates, 4 albums and tons of collaborations, each one cooler than the last (Thavius Beck, Grems, Existereo, Subtitle, TTC, etc…). Then as a solo producer when it was time to be independent. A relative solitude since Tcheep is regularly surrounded by his label mates (Liqid, Andy Kayes and Arom), Lucio Bukowski and other rappers who call upon his madness to produce instrumentals or even entire projects.
Enter the trap/oriental Tcheep‘s world
He is also the author of a web series entitled ‘Les Productions du dimanche’ and of ‘Technodrome’, an EP available on vinyl and digital since last September, which features Q-Unique (Arsonists), Liqid, Arom, Fayce le virus, Fat Hed & Motion Man. Oasis Mecanic’ was released on 12 May. Arid in melodies, this EP is mostly made up of beautiful screaming sirens, claps, fat kicks and screams that punctuate the project and set a desert scene on the whole of this 8 track EP. Oriental trap, straight out of Tcheep’s brain and fingers in the space of a week of confinement. We at the editors admire this mix of culture…
