Those who have COBEE on their radar know that the 25-year-old Swiss is the avant-garde of sovereign melancholy in intelligent but still accessible artschool hip-hop and thus the adept counter-design to macho emo trap or flex rap according to the construction kit system. At least until now!
Already with his "Chaos" EP released in 2018, COBEE proved that he was more than just a newcomer among many. How Cyril Oberli skillfully combined his musical influences from electronica to house with delicate harmonies and melodies in dialect to create his very own vibe and told of love, loneliness and hedonism was simply impressive. After it was comparatively quiet around COBEE in 2020, he set the course for a personal new beginning in 2021 and released his "EUNOIA" EP on June 25, 2021. After a short interlude with the collabo single "Body" in March 2022, COBEE has now once again turned everything around, repositioned himself and surprises in the single Scheine! not only with a very special feature guest, but also immediately with borrowings from a whole new genre.
In "Scheine!" COBEE oscillates between alternative and German rap, with a proper punk attitude. In the team-up with a supposedly stoic Viko63, business advice comes for free. Not to subordinate yourself, not to conform and nevertheless or exactly because of that to arrive where you want to go. Because "Scheine!" is not about realism, it's simply about doing. But on your own, for yourself and not for those up there.
