《The Guy》kafe hu:这家伙不止有性感的嗓音

当我第一次知道kafe hu这个人的时候大约是在三年前,我被他的《小姐你真可怜》所惊艳,就一直把那首歌存在自己的ipod里面。今年,这位来自成都的说唱歌手在网络上发布了自己的新专辑《The Guy》。这是一张小巧的免费专辑,音乐总时间长度只有二十四分钟,但却丝毫不能影响到它的精彩。

一直以来,kafe hu在中国的说唱圈子里是一个特别的存在——因为他低沉沙哑又不失性感的嗓音,因为他多变多彩自成一派的flow,还有一直以来他歌曲中所传达的思辨和情感,以及丰富的内心世界。《The Guy》依然如此,正如kafe hu在专辑intro里所说的“感觉像婴儿一样简单,文字像猫一样灵敏,灵感像公路一样可以无限延伸”,专辑的封面是很简单的红底黑字和他自己的。93年出生的同样来自成都的新锐producer陈韬羽Eddie包办了专辑中主要曲目的制作,两人此前已经进行了多次无间的合作。他别出心裁的采样和对电声元素,完美的契合了kafe hu的嗓音。第一首曲目《KAFE.HU LIFE》是一首自我表白式的作品,kafe hu在这首歌里用一句“我拥有笔所以自己写专辑,我拥有呼吸所以声音振动了空气,我拥有麦克风在人潮汹涌中散布各种信息我有梦双脚离地高空飞行”表达了自己对音乐理想的坚持,虽然在非常舒缓的伴奏的衬托之下却仍然掷地有声。《Everybody Jump》是一首简短急促的电子舞曲风作品,不同于他往常的温柔声调,向我们展示了kafe hu轻松游走于各种曲风之间的实力。《人》的曲风回归了kafe hu最擅长的爵士说唱,Eddie的伴奏也采用了爵士乐和人声的采样。在轻快的节奏下,他用充满磁性的声音娓娓道来,讲诉当代人们都市生活的际遇。《浮游生物》中kafe hu将自己比作浮游生物,诉说了自己浮游于人生中的所念所想,这首歌的基调非常梦幻,让人仿佛就置身于海水中,穿插的钢琴声犹如溅起的浪花,柔软的女声是海中的洋流。《戏子》中,两个成都人把玩着成都人的慵懒和自在,kafe hu难得的玩起了俏皮,成都味十足。《失眠患者》和《所希望和实际上》由上海的Wino Willy制作。《失眠患者》迷幻气息十足,《所希望和实际上》的伴奏拥有非常精彩的采样,kafe hu在这首歌里面表达了对理想和现实之差的无奈。《The Guy》是专辑的最后一首歌,依然由Eddie制作,作为一首总结性的歌曲,kafe hu狠狠的剖析了自我,但这种剖析却是对那些沉醉在自己幻梦中的“fake rapper”们的有力一击。

不得不说,《The Guy》这张专辑是我今年以来听到的最好的华语说唱。虽然来自Underground,却丝毫不失精良,无论是伴奏还是后期,反而处处显露出考究,这也表现出了kafe hu和他的朋友们对于音乐品质的不懈追求。这种追求使得他的才华得以很好地展现,而不会被埋没于平庸。我很高兴华语说唱领域有很多kafe hu这样的新锐,他们没有把时间花费在拿样和装范儿上,而是投身于理想。这让我们看到希望。
