Pato Pooh - "Fallback" Music Video


There's something to be said for respecting the foundation of the art of Rap. You can do new things and experiment with new sounds but you can't just throw the foundation away and call it Rap. Yet, here in America it's happening regularly in mainstream Rap and RnB. There's a whole bunch of house, techno, dance music, electro, dub-step whatever being passed off on Urban radio as Rap and RnB. It is not.

In the many corners of the world, there are artists like Pato Pooh who are creating exciting new music with commercial appeal and still honoring the roots. "Fallback" is a return of sorts for the Sweden based rapper. After a Grammy snub in 2010, Pato went back to the drawing board to evolve himself and his sound. This music video is the first look into what he has coming up for 2013.

The production by K-One is very "coupe-speeding-in-the-night" with it's bouncing synth line and crunched guitars. Pato Pooh proves that it doesn't matter where you're from. Only skill and sound matter. He's got both well in hand and "Fallback" is a highly enjoyable track.

Check it out...
