The Trip is Dexter’s long-awaited follow-up to his seminal album – Jazz Files. “The German Hi-Hat Club member is letting his hair down by turning the late 60s psychedelic rock sound into hip-hop.”
The Trip is all about free love, LSD, hash, fuzz guitars, tablas and revolution and at the same time probably one of the most free-thinking hip-hop albums of 2013. Dexter’s music has been in its own cloud for a while now, but none of his previous records have been as far-out as – The Trip. With a concept similar the The Jazz Files, Dexter is telling his personal psych story, one that been triggered by his digging habits.
“I like nearly every music from the late 60’s, Dexter says. He goes onto further explain “My whole musical spectrum has been shaped by this era. It was a time when everything was in progress – art, film, music, society, and I wanted to bring this vibe across on this album.“
