Boomkat Product Review:
*Includes bonus tracks 'Filthy City' & 'Filthnoid Mix'* 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.
