Grems is an incredible creative force and a man of passion, turning whatever he touches into absolute madness. A cult graffiti artist, connoisseur of fine production (the making of last year’s Brokabilly involved, amongst others,such names as Son of Kick, Machinedrum or Simbad), but most importantly saviour of French hiphop, assisted by Ntek (bbox), MiM (production) and a band of “Bolos” (guest production by NightDrugs, Broadrush, guest rhymes by Ill X, Rimcah, Didayi and Foreign Beggars) make a whole lot of noise on Pour Ma Paire De Jordan.

Known for decorating all styles with his flow Grems and Ntek conquer dubstep and related forms of mutated beats making dubkho aka dub-hop and remind us that good hiphop has no boundaries just as lyrical skills shine in all musical circumstances. Pour ma paire de Jordan starts of with a very populistic and LOUD dubstep, one that will torture Your ears and make You cringe, but the real pleasures are hidden behind titles such as twisted Mofo, dark Pardon maman or party-oriented Mlle sephora. Sweet fluidity of transitions between the genres can be enjoyed on Doutro or Skwizer but signature piece of the album remains Bolos, in all three revelations (released earlier in form of EP with remixes from Madjestik and Son of Kick), where “old” and “new” legends of ILLa i Grems prove that French hiphop ain’t dead! The album is full of spacial sounds that work best in a club and, obviously, in full effect, live – encapsulated in mp3 form Pour ma paire de Jordan is a product of a month of excercise in the studio which only underlines how ephemeral music genres are these days.

In word of the leader of the whole mess, Grems, the album was made “for form’s sake and for my youth” and is more a rehearsal and a lesson than a deep reflection, which doesn’t disturb the listening by the young and restless: Grems, Entek and MiM, give us wings!
