Pitch Black Prism

Myself and one of Team Norm were discussing the other day about how Anticon has gone from consistently awesome bastion of backpack hip-hop cool to frustratingly patchy over the course of a mere few years. This time resident beat-maker Alias returns with his third solo effort, 'Pitch Black Prism'. As with Alias's previous efforts, though,...view item »

Alias & Tarsier
Dr. C / Five Year Eve

Alias & Tarsier have a taster 12" for the forthcoming album on Anticon. 'Dr C' Is a heavy atmospheric track with clicky beats and pops, Tarsiers voice is great. Really dreamy. I don't know what's happening to me, I'm going all mushy. The keyboards and bass on here do the job perfectly. A strange blend of indie ro...view item »

Alias & Ehren

New one by Alias.  Average to good instrumental hip-hop with the odd highlight  such as the excellent collaboration with the Notwist dude (who adds typically Neil Tennant-esque vocals while he's there). The rest is kind of dark with bits of detached voices flying in and out of the mix. An...view item »

Closed EP

Also on Anticon  on slightly  more of a regular hip hop tip (but not much) is a new EP by Alias. Its dark, brooding instrumental stuff with no vocals whatsoever except the odd disconnected voice. A bit  like Jel's stuff I suppose but less soulful and more scary and soundtracky. The Clo...view item »
