Review: Voodoo Mob – 210 Soldiers

The single 210 Soldiers was released on cassette only in 1997 on 210 Records outta San Antonio, Texas. Long forgotten rap label Hated Family funded the single as well contributed to its production. Half the songs on this single are instrumentals. 210 Soldiers is a San Antonio rap classic! All bass heads and rap heads will enjoy and appreciate the heavy usage of bass this single has to offer. Underground rap fans will dig this!

Voodoo is a prime example of the rap sub genre called Doodooism. Doodooism is heavy bass and heavy percussion with usage of reduced treble. Voodoo relies heavily on the usage of bass. A low pitched vocal sample saying “voodoo” is looped every 2 seconds. The rhythms are presented in a gloomy style meshed into horrorcore sound. Samples are incorporated into the sound of this track. This track is similar to something you would hear from Twice Tha Power, Spooky G & Blackjack, DJ AK, Brown Tribe, Tribe 46, Chuy Loko, DJ Trini B, Namik, Kyle Lee, Mr. Irok, or PKO.

Voodoo Mob gets stupid low and slow with the bass settings on Slow and Low Bass. The bass is low and super heavy. Low bass has always been prevalent in San Antonio hip hop and rap along with San Antonio culture. Also low bass has always been a part of the music scene there. The dubs are killer.

Kill is a horrorcore rap oriented track hence the title so on. Kill comes with a super hype bass overdub. As the bass intensifies later in the track, the more the bass becomes hyper. The dubs are killer. The dub and the overdub is what sets the Kill recording track apart from the other tracks on this single.

I rate this album 5/5*****!!
