Seattle Times
Seattle’s favorite avant-garde rappers Shabazz Palaces were recently featured in the UK’s experimental music magazine The Wire. Explains the magazine, “Purposeful and probing, the EPs exhibit a level of maturity and sophistication not only in their stark rhymes, but also the production. Although tagged as ‘experimental,’ they never actually pull away from recognisable [sic] forms of hiphop. Yet, for hiphop, the music is full of unusual sonic details, such as multitracked vocals and mostly self-recorded samples, and reflects a healthy interest in a wider culture embracing dubstep, ragga and Techno. These tracks ride the instinctual pleasure of rhythm and pique the mind’s desire for something new.” To read the full article, follow the link above.
