Comment: this is an arousing yet not ordinary issue of a handful of pieces clocking in at a 24 minute. As you have already figured out behind the project are three musicians/mc`s whose music used to base on striking poetry like The Last Poets but whose profound thoughts are backdropped by free jazz, improvised noise, slowed-down beats thereby chiming like a slowed-down and more acoustic form of Death Grips. At times the message is warped through sonic effect blocks to change it even into more obscure (for instance, at Habitus Poeticus). In general, by listening to the issue one can discern endless undulation from start to end, from top to bottom. They themselves call it “tripstep” it might be because they are represented threesome over there. On the other side, it might be because the three stylistic whales on which the issue used to stand upright are hip-hop, jazz, and electronic music, and the styles are seamlessly crossed with one another. The issue is a part of the roster of the Portuguese imprint enoughrecords. In a word, let’s enjoy an ideal form of hip-hop music.
