Clubs and sex are Antwon’s subjects of choice, and his music sounds exactly like both. Double Ecstasy’s trap-hip-hop detonations drop in and out in less than 20 minutes total, but the atmospheric impact made in that time is undeniable. Pressed to coloured vinyl on Anticon, in a limited edition of 1000 copies.

Myself and Anticon went down our separate paths many years ago but I’m generally interested/horrified to hear their latest output.
Antwon is a San Jose rapper with some interesting sonics but questionable themes. Opener ‘Luv’ could be seen as ironic if you are listening carefully enough but the thud is just one half step away from P Diddy. ‘Girl Flex’ shows truly where Antwon’s mind is at though - he wants to have sex with a girl and is pretty confident that he can pull off this interaction. It’s a shame that he falls so easily into this trap as musically this is quite interesting with lots of dollopy beats, spaced out echoes and a hooky chorus. However any respect I have is washed away with the chauvinist bollocks of ‘100k’. Haven’t we had quite enough of this objectifying bullshit?
I declared in another review earlier that hip-hop is the only genre that is really interesting me at the moment - take the vocals away from this and I would indeed be interested. I'm amazed that crap like this is still shovelled out - seems a world away from the intellig-rap of the likes of Dose One.
