Yo…the first thing that grabbed our attention was that beautiful SS Decontrol rip (cover art below)! Then we hit play and get in the face with fucking dope 90’s influenced hip hop and then we started diving deeper on this called HH Decontrol. And guess what this is? It’s a brand new political hip hop project out of Malaysia featuring 3 dudes out of the Malaysian hardcore scene all over the mic and the beats: DJ Killah Z, Manic E Preacher, Addy Ruff.
According to Manic E Preacher, “The project started during the lockdown here in Malaysia. The project is called HH Decontrol which is heavily influenced by Cypress Hill, Beastie Boys and an Indonesian group Eyefeelsix. The three of us involved have been in the following bands: Tools of Trade, WWHIRCC, xHaydx, Speewitches, Thinlyveiledcollusion, Engage in Combat, MyHeadCorrupt and Sharon Stoned. We started this band because the current political situation here in Malaysia is at the worst ever this is what inspired us to start this project.”
The band’s debut release will be a 7″ out on DJ Killah Z’s own label MHBA Records. The label is focused on supporting hip hop acts with a message. To pick up the 7″ hit up the label directly HERE.
