Mr. Lif & Akrobatik (The Perceptionists)
First album in 12 years from ex Def Jux-ers Mr Lif and Akrobatik as The Perceptionists, though this time it's just the two of them. The pair's chemistry comes very easily, unsurprising as they both beat death to get here, and makes the heavy topics they tackle much easier to swallow.
- Vinyl LP (MMG001011)
- Coloured vinyl
- Limited edition
Exciting days for the underground hip-hop heads, with the debut full-length pairing of MC Mr. Lif and producer L’Orange now landing. The flows and the grooves sit perfectly together, and the party is boosted further by appearances from Gonjasufi, Akrobatik and others. The Life & Death Of Scenery is released by the Mello Music Group label.
Don’t Look Down is a 2016 hip-hop album that goes deep into the personal and the political. Slick and groovy productions back Mr Lif’s smooth flows, and guest MCs include Del The Funky Homosapien and The Perceptionists. Released as a CD and also a black and grey vinyl (‘Storm Clouds’ is the theme) double LP edition. On Mello Music Group.
- Vinyl Double LP (MMG000841)
An awesome reissue of Mr Lif’s debut album I Phantom. Originally on El-P’s now defunct Def Jux imprint it features many of the key players including El-P himself, Aesop Rock, and Vast Aire. If you’ve missed out on anything to do with Def Jux, this is a good place to start, showcasing leftfield hip-hop done well. There certainly aren’t many concept hip-hop albums around.
