As a lover of the darker side of hip hop too (Dalek, MF Doom…that kind of snizzle) ‘Oblivion’ is probably the highlight for me though. Featuring DJ Zeph and Azeem it’s an ominous bass heavy cut with some particularly neat word play. The album ends where we came in, back with the trippy spaced out grooves of ‘Surfing The Silvatide’ and ‘Crescent Moon’. Astronautical…but nice.
‘We Are To Answer’ by Ancient Astronauts is out on ESL Music on 29th June 2009…or, if you happen to be visiting Venus, I believe Bob’s Record Store has a really good hip hop section.
