Anti-Pop Consortium‘s alternative hip-hop sound is much underrated, especially at a time where artists such as Tyler the Creator and The Neptunes thrive. That said, I’m not making a direct comparison between the groups. Four Tet‘s remix of Volcano is a perfect addition to the Ninja Tune XX label’s catalog, whereas it may look a tad out of place on something like Interscope.

The tune is the prefect balance of lo-fi without sounding messy. The melodic arpeggiated synths remind me of something that you’d hear from Jarre or Vangelis, but that’s probably just me. The rap vocals are tight and flow well over the top, as you can expect from a group as reputable as the Anti-Pop Consortium, who have been doing their thing since the late 90s (not counting a 5-year hiatus from 2002-2007).
