The Doppelgangaz


“The Doppelgangaz are not horrorcore, but they’re making dark music, and… they even have that RZA-esque pained growl popping up a few times. – The Fader

“The Doppelgangaz mix innovative, off kilter production with irreverent, sometimes hilarious rhymes.”HipHopDX

HARK named #2 New York Hip-Hop Album of 2013 – Village Voice

“The Doppelgangaz are New York rap in its purest form.”XXL

“If these don’t sound like the kind of rhymes you’d be interested in, you can go kick rocks barefoot.” – Refined Hype

“The rappers use bucolic production as a backdrop to reel off rhymes that offer insight into an off-kilter world, one that delights in mixing references to gourmand foodstuffs with the sort of sexual perversions that would make Dr. Octagon smirk.” – SPIN

The Doppelgangaz, comprised of rapper/producers Matter Ov Fact and EP, are a standard bearer for the New York hip-hop scene. Through the duo’s own label, Groggy Pack Entertainment, The Doppelgangaz have dropped a string of EP releases as well as instrumental projects. It’s after these releases that the duo saw their biggest success -The Doppelgangaz have over one million YouTube channel views; they reached number one on HHV’s Top 100 list, Europe’s top vinyl retailer – and they’ve done it all independently. They wrapped up a European tour supporting their latest album, Hark, which was released in Spring 2013 and named the year’s #2 NY hip-hop album by the Village Voice. In February 2014, the Doppelgangaz released their new album, Peace Kehd, which includes their singles “Holla x2” and “KnowntchooTahLie.”
