'Mystery Repeats' is the second full-length album by Pete Philly and Perquisite. Their first album, 'Mindstate', blends smooth beats and jazzy melodies over a great instrumentation. 'Mystery repeats' goes way beyond that, with music that reveals serious production and quality (yes, quality) hip hop.
The album flows very naturally, which reflects the hard work in producing and mixing the songs. Their music is unique and stylish, a product from conventional instrumentation, poetic lyrics and creativity, passing above and beyond ordinary bounds from hip hop. I know it sounds a little excessive (heh, maybe it is) but I'm really tired of repetitive lyrics and short samples being considered hip hop (compare any beat from 'Mystery repeats' with the boredom of Kanye's 'Can't tell me nothin' and find it for yourself).
There is no need to review each song. The albums consists of a solid music experience (or should you call it a trip), with melodic versatility and inspiring vibes. Merging nostalgic moments with emotional lyrics, this is a very eclectic production.
Keeping it short, this is one to remember. It's nothing like regular hip hop, so if you like the standards keep your eyes off this pearl. This is hip hop as it should be: experimental, emotional, explicit and funny.
