Solomon & Socalled’s remarkable cast of musicians, including special guest David Krakauer, turn an authentic Eastern European Jewish wedding, the khasene, into a hiphop extravaganza complete with old-school Yiddish freestylin' on the mike from shtetl-MC Michael Alpert. Come join the wedding party, share in ancient marriage rituals and celebrate the union of fiddle and microphone! Plus - an exclusive remix from SMADJ.


"Here’s a CD whose powers of addiction have already welded it into my walkman. […] No one forgets this is party music, and it remains a riououslyjoyful affair for us all. Mazeltov!"

Songlines 08/2003

"This is the first time I hear a mix between Klezmer & HipHop. And very rarely the combination of different elements is so much in tune, that a classic like the HipHopKhasene arises.""


"Sophie Solomon is on the brink of what promises to be a wildly successful career"

Lifestyles Magazine

"A work of great chutzpah and genius..."

DJ Max Reinhardt

"The most impressive aspects of Hip Hop Khasene, though, are the mixes. Given the freedom of a full CD, DJ Socalled is able to expand on his previously strong singular efforts for both London and Krakauer. Into each mix he weaves morsels from comedy albums, the Yiddish theater and a potpourri of dubbed in samples. The final "bonus" remix, "Headphoines ", is a break beat celebration of the whole affair that augurs a long and happy marriage.""
