Big Dada


Released: 16th Dec 2013


green splatter clear lp + 12" & download

Released: 13th Jan 2014


el-p & killer mike collaborate on this compelling onslaught of heavy post-death grips hip-hop, that manages to channel the indie rap el-p is synonymous with while sounding futuristic & timeless.

el-p is on top form here, putting his distinct stamp on all of the instrumentals on offer, while mike has never sounded so energetic, effortless & vital. the menacing 2-step vibe of the eponymous opening track sees the rappers trade whip fast verses over the wonky skank of the beat. outkast’s big boi steps up to the mic for ‘banana clipper’, recalling the Atlanta rap scene he & killer mike made their names in. ‘sea legs’ is a mid-way highlight, both rappers taking to a theme & owning it over a faster paced, distinctly modern synth-heavy beat, while ‘a Christmas fucking miracle’ channels an oft-overlooked festive darkness over some half-stepping, sleigh bell laden trap. lp includes bonus 12" feat. 1 extra track & remixes from dave sitek & bsbd.
