Blah Records
Loving Black Josh's 'Ape Tape' — just one in a welter of ace releases from Blah of late (also check out Sleazy F Baby's 'All Blahk Tracksuit' and Danny Lover & Wes Murray's 'Career Suicide'). This track is both a highlight and a good indicator of what you should expect. Beats and loops that make Danny Brown sound like Drake and rhymes that cut like a scalpel to your skull. The noise-loops that flutter around the diseased trap bass are just insane — extremely redolent for me of vintage Bomb Squad productions. Check the unsettling video for this on Youtube and then go get the tape off Bandcamp as soon as you can. Don't leave 2016 behind without it.
