It’s Free But It’s Not Cheap (KFM)
LEFTFIELD HIP HOP
As billed this solo outing from Radioinactive and Boom Bip associate Antimc is a freewheeling hodgepodge of avant-garde jazz sensibilities applied to punk, electro, experimental rock and hip hop. As such it can be angular, maddening and downright abrasive at times and boasts a similarly leftfield roll call of guest vocalists and MCs. It is among the atmospheric tail-enders that the more approachable productions lie, the inspired wonky hip hop of ‘The True Believer’ being bolstered by dreamy, billowing instrumentals. All in all it makes for a commendably high-risk debut that pulls no punches and rattles in at less than 40 minutes.
