N’toko is the master of words – be it as a rapper or a columnist. He released his first solo album back in 2003, published numerous albums with the awesome Moveknowledgement band and is without doubt one of the best Slovenian rappers.
He unfortunately hasn’t released an album in Slovene for years but after a period of mostly performing and writing, he delivered “Emirates” – a perfectly crafted album that sadly went a bit under the radar.
After numerous tours – be it in Europe, Japan or gigs in US, it seems N’toko is stronger than ever in English – coming closer to his envious skills in Slovene, doing what he does best – mirroring all the absurdity of our society making him and his life the narrative and the main figure. Treat yourself to some “Emirates”. (Andraž Kajzer)
