Still Rhyming is the hip-hop duo of Doak 17 and Rhymez Disguised from Dimapur in India.
There is a subtle sound that Still Rhyming deliver, which is something of a surprise given the genre and it is the melodic compositions that mark out the duo as well worth spending time to get to know.
The lyrics, whilst reflective of injustices, are equally inclusive and looking for a path through the conundrums of life. This thoughtful process allows Still Rhyming to create music which has a strangely calming effect and is far from typical of hip-hop, perhaps chill-zone rap would be a better genre definition.
Whilst predominately deploying looped beats, as to be anticipated, the duo also introduce on some tracks the sounds of piano, which demonstrate their desire and ability to scope new ground within the style and it works particularly well.
In a sector of music that I normally find difficulty in engaging, I am looking forward to hearing far more by Still Rhyming in the future.
