Rokas is a project born from the desire to give space to one’s own words and thoughts, to tell with sincerity about life, loves, friendships.
Born in ’92, Alberto Sanlazzaro in Rokas, who came out a few months ago with a super album entitled “Mostri Contro Fantasmi”.
2 albums, 15 songs, a project that is an exercise, an itinerary of the personality of the rapper from La Spezia.
“Mostri contro fantasmi, the things I’m afraid of, versus the things I’m afraid of being afraid of. It’s twisted, even though the fears themselves are always sharp, we always know what we’re afraid of just as we always know what we don’t want but less what we do want. The past has taught me suspicion and argument as it has taught me levity.”
An album that comes two years after “Nemico del cuore”, Rokas releases his second album, “Mostri Contro Fantasmi”, a work that strikes for its density of different elements and atmospheres.
Inside we also find feats and illustrious collaborations, such as the talent of the house Machete, Dani Faiv, while the productions were handled by Granato, Luke Giordano and Baci Ovunque.
An album that moves with extreme ease between the sounds of hip-hop, rap, funk-pop, R & B. Definitely worth listening to if you missed it, with a personal and direct writing, without too many turns of phrase.
And as always we could not miss the playlist of Rokas exclusively for Collater.al Mag, a little ‘to dance, a little’ to know him better or just listen to some good music.
I’ll be honest, it’s not a playlist to get to know me better, but inside I’ve put all those songs that lately when I listen to them I feel like reciting them, a bit “Moves Like Jagger” in short. Like when you’re dancing when nobody’s watching.
