8/10 Clinton Staff review, 09 March 2012

Has the world changed since I last looked? When did Type start releasing hip hop records? And when did '808s and Dark Grapes 1' come out? I have no idea what the answers are. What I do know, though, is that I'm waaaaaay behind on my clipity-clop and am in urgent need of a 'catch up' on what the kids are doing with their computers and their internets in order to make it. What I do know is that these lot are one of a growing band of hip hop young people working in a cottage industry stylee, away from the man and doing their own thing on their own terms. Several producers are involved here, few are names known to me (Clams Casino an exception). This is a very dreamy brand of hip hop (apparently 'cloud rap' is the term) which is very laid back, using gorgeous synths, langourous beats and very little cussing in the rhymes. 'Chuch' (produced by Friendzone) is an absolute killer, beautiful haunting 'chillwave' synths and vocals drenched in reverb, it's absolutely unmitigatedly beautiful. The quality and style depends on the producer at work, Clams Casino as you may expect produces a stunning dark soundscape and the other Friendzone production again uses '80s yacht-rock keyboards to good effect. Overall a vibrant collection.
