Incredible Deep fried head music direct from the dome of Black Zone Myth Chant, originally issued as tape + CDr by High Wolf's Winged Sun label in 2011, now released on vinyl by Laitdbac Records (Big Jus, Alpine Decline). It's gotta be the most fugged-out, abstract hip hop/drone session since Dem Hunger's 'Caveman Smack' session in 2010, holding our bonce under a slow moving whirlpool of samples and screwed voices across nine tracks until we pass out into their nexx plane of detached, disorienting psychedelia. The severely down-pitched vocal is a constant throughout the tr… Read more

In the meantime the Austrian producer has been conspicuous by his absence from the scene, during a time which the likes of FlyLo, Rustie and HudMo have flourished with a lush, complex sound quite similar to his own. On return with 'Joined Ends' he's now best compared with the jazzy fruit of FaltyDL or Dego, a nimble warp and weft of classically trained virtuosity and processed instrumentation done … Read more

Currently soundtracking an Apple advert, the lead cut flips the switch between airborne arpeggios and chest-puffing brass vamps inna Drill style we could easily imagine Kanye romping over. He's equally impressive when leaving the beats behind too, as with the wobbly kosmische flash of 'Brainwave', whilst 'King Kong Beaver' brings back the funk showmanship with flamboyant chops and the nuttiest drums. For the insatiable, there's also a rushin' junglist trap remix by Gammer.

STYLES UPON STYLES

Format_dot_vinylLP // £8.49

BEATS / HIP HOP

Cat. Number: SUS006LP

Gully New York hip hop coated in scuzzy noise by Gut Nose, back on his home city's Styles Upon Styles label. Landing squarely between the eyes of Parallel Thought's rugged beat suites and classic El-P produce, 'Filthy City' evokes a bloodshot, street-level view of a wasted metropolis in eleven concise parts. It all feels haunted by the dread ghosts of late '90s boom bap, DJ Spooky, Wordsound, RZA's 'Ghostdog' soundtrack et al, and is also prone to wigging out into collapsing industrial house structures at will. As a sort of sonic psychogeographic derivè it really takes us there.
