Graphic Antics – What Does It Mean? (2017)

  • Dream hop

Comment: hip-hop music can be represented in different forms and with disparate intentions. Fortunately we are living today while even mainstream hip-hop is truly intriguing, the recent situation within the urban music is obviously much better than it was 10 years and 20 years ago. Boring gangsta rap is deceased and Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar are producing music which could have been considered a representative of underground hip-hop many years ago. Of course, there have been existed artists whose intention to produce avant-garde music is to use hip-hop music as an instrument for it. For instance, Death Grips, and Dälek are such a sort of artists. Or Flying Lotus whose purpose has been to produce a moody sound. The conglomeration of Ant The Symbol, and Graphic Melee aka Graphic Antics' 14-track outing is a fabulous whole, a fabulous platform to cross the aforementioned tendencies and facets into a coherent whole. It is a truly convincing rapping with dynamic sampling sets where spicy and arrogant attitudes are variegated with more shadowy and cinematic glimpses where one can discern yearning and even pain. Let's call it dream-hop as a style and as a result. The issue is a bit in the discography of blocSonic. A best issue in 2017 so far.
