Official debut album of the young rap duo from Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. LP in inside-out cover with black inner sleeve, 24-page booklet (21 x 21 cm) and band logo sticker. Albert and Pablo are not only two friends from the „hinterland“ between Demmin and Greifswald who have already grown up together, as Hinterlandgang they have been releasing their hiphop sound since 2018, which puts a focused exclamation mark on the twelve tracks on „Maschendraht“, now for the first time with a label behind them. Highly urban, cool and by no means provincial sounding, the lowered trap beats with their melodic hooks, battle announcements, reps, storytelling, party breakers and deeply soulful insights into the inner lives of the protagonists alternate. The direct tangibility, thematic setting and attitude of the tracks by Hinterlandgang point far beyond the soundtrack of a generation of young people from Mecklenburg-Vorpommern: this music from the hinterland paints a vivid picture full of doubts, contradictions, passion and creativity.
