Forward thinking business from t’Palaces, melding aspects of funk, jazz, and psychedelia into a shimmering melange of other-worldly, cyber-punk, hip-hop.

with ‘the don of diamond dreams’, the group’s fifth album, their evolution continues as they let the music speak for itself as it slowly reveals more about its creators. This time embracing modernism in hip-hop and rap but with an impossible vision that will both confound and engage in equal measures. the record features the highlights “fast learner (ft. purple tape nate),” “chocolate souffle,” “bad bitch walking (ft. stas thee boss), and “thanking the girls.” FFO: The Underachievers, Flatbush Zombies, Flying Lotus, Sun Ra “‘The Don of Diamond Dreams’ push further out into cosmic sounds feels like a retort to ‘90s boom-bap traditionalists who rip on changing fashions out of bitterness.” 8/10 - Loud & Quiet
