Kill Billionaires – Terrorism

Kill Billionaires is back with another elusive video, “Terrorism”. Still we no nothing of him, but we like what we hear!

Strangelove – EP 1

Finally Strangelove return with a new release, “EP 1”. Taking their brand of blissed out, left of centre hip hop to a new level. Production wise, “EP 1” is sparse, atmospheric, verging on ambient at time, with hints of future beats and electronica, this is miles away from boom bap hip hop, but it works perfectly. Super chilled, yet full of energy, the MC’s lay their well crafted rhymes over melodic tones and noises, there’s not always a beat, but they show you don’t always need one. The groups sound does fit well into the weed driven UK hip hop scene, but doesn’t rely on cliches vocally or musically too many fall into. Creating a sound that stoners and experimental fans will enjoy equally, or just fans of good interesting music.
Out now on limited edition cassette and digital, this is definitely the kind of thing we want to hear more of coming out of the UK. Also check out the video for the track “Lonely Souls” featuring Bellatrix.

Walter Gross – Super Basic

Walter Gross returns with a new beat tape that pull on all his influences to create an unique, left of centre, experimental album.
“Super Basic” ranges from hard hitting, distorted beats to off kilter electronica and ambient noise. At times I’m reminded of fellow beat creator Al Lover, with the woozey wash of sounds on offer. It definitely makes for interesting listening.

Yuri Morozov – Strange Angels

“Strange Angels” is a compilation of 1970’s experimental & electronic music recorded in soviet Russia by Yuri Morozov. Banned by the KGB for its esoteric content and references to forbidden spiritual texts, Yuri recorded over 46 albums between the 1970s until his death in 2006. Only available on cassettes passed around in secret within the Russian music underground until now.
The music on offer here ranges from the beat driven “Shall Come Forth The Demons”and “Inexplicable (pt 4)” to the more ambient sounds of “Return To Atlantis” and the prog experiments such as “Gita Shakti”. Regardless of where Morozov takes you, the heavily experimental and early electronic sound is the overwhelming theme, creating music that is very much of it’s time yet it still sounds fresh today.
If you have any interest in early electronics, prog rock, psychedelic rock, experimental music the suggest you pick this album up, you won’t regret it!
