Rap stalwart staHHr brings her golden era flow to the controlled chaos of Sal Dulu's "Buzzcut".
Reminiscent of the fidgety glitch-hop of the early noughties innovator Prefuse 73, Sal Dulu chops together cinematic strings, erratic breaks and spiritual-esque chants – an arrangement that shivers and stutters beneath staHHr's vocal. It's a treat to be graced by an appearance from the Atlanta-via-Memphis emcee, one of hip hop's more elusive and most underrated voices.
staHHr has pocketed collaborations with a myriad of hip hop's finest, having guested on MF DOOM's seminal MM..Food and Born Like This. Producer Sal Dulu hails from Dublin, Ireland, a place increasingly associated with burgeoning hip hop talent.
Speaking to Best Fit, he says his influences bridge "a few different genres like soul, jazz and hip hop. It’s hard for me to describe what’s going on with “Buzzcut” but I enjoyed making it. It was exciting to collaborate with staHHr – I’ve been listening to her music for a long time and I’m really into it. I think she’s a great artist."
