fbcfabric & reindeer – It’s Not Who You Know, It’s Whom You Know

Originally released back in 2005, FBC Fabric and Reindeers album “It’s Not Who You Know, It’s Whom You Know” is being given a new lease of life with its debut vinyl release. Originally released on hand crafted CD, that are long sold out now, Mism Records have done an awesome of re-issuing the album on deluxe triple vinyl, strictly limited to 100 copies.
Musically the album is left-field, avant-garde, experimental hip hop, easily comparable to Anticon Records releases. As much as this is true, there is without a doubt a big influence, it still feels like a slightly lazy comparison. You can also hear influences from the likes of Taskforce, El-P and Def Jux, classic hip hop, folk music and much more.
This is serious music with depth and passion, left-field UK hip hop done well not sounding like a poor imitation of our state side counter parts. Perfect autumn and winter listening, we urge you to get a copy while you can.
Buy the album from Mism Records here.
