The hero of southern Jutland, Per Vers, has released his, what, 15th album? I don´t know, those 15 (maybe more) are a mix of singles, mixtapes and albums. What it´s culminated in, is the album “Tæt”.
“Tæt” is an almost conceptual album going from fast to slow, bright to dark and most of what´s in between. The album has a lot of personality and character, has elements from both new school and old school hip hop, and is driven by Per Vers´ free vocals. There are traces to several genres and sources of inspiration in the different tracks, as well as a lot of different sound effects and other elements bringing humor and originality to the album.
Per Vers keeps it going with his highly ironic lyrics and matching quick and cheeky flow. “Tæt” is an album that is bigger and more upbeat, but his beats are far from those standard club beats. The songs sound massive and well constructed, and go from those upbeat and groovy beats to more almost progressive and destructive beats, to some smooth and sexy beats and back and forth.
This album takes on the modern man for all it´s worth, the need for confirmation and how we grow apart the more we connect. Without being condescending, Per Vers lists up his observations in nice rhymes. Though definitely proving himself to be a smart guy, Per Vers doesn´t mind childish humor (referring to the song “Megapenis”). Songs like “Fredag før fyraften” is one of those numbers making this album more conceptual and even more ironical.
To sum up, the songs are varied, the beats are overall good and his ironical rhymes hit the spot. As a Norwegian and a newbie to the Danish rap scene, Per Vers showed me that there is a lot going on here.
If this album was an instagram picture, I would definitely ‘like’ it.
