ANTI POP CONSORTIUM, proto-skweee?

antipopCheck this awesome cut by one of my fav hiphop groups of all times, THE ANTI POP CONSORTIUM. I even have their great out of print 10″ on BLACK HOODZ as well, which I love like crazy. Kinda got messed up when they signed to WARP!

But… is this not really a proto version of skwee? with cool rap on top? The beats are unquantised or have heavy swing, they use a lot of sci-fi synths and weirded out samples and also drop instrumentals. I also love their TRAGIC EPILOGUE album with a vengeance and try to get ‘hiphop’ fans into their stuff whenever possible, which continues to be a difficult job. Word on the street (well… the net) has it that they are working on a NEW ALBUM! YESSSSSSSSS!
