Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

Wanting to try something a little more experimental.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

I’ll borrow a line from a friend: “I will say this: very hot album cover art.” -Jacob Schellenberg

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Yeah experimental stuff is almost always a yes for me on vinyl.

Final Thoughts:

Experimental Hip-Hop makes me squirm a little, it’s a dangerous game to mess with Hip-Hop too much, it can backfire really easily. But clipping seems to do it effortlessly, I mean holy crap I’ve never heard anything like this in my life. The electronic bed of weird sounds over the lead actor of Hamilton’s fast rapping is astonishing. This is one of the first times I’ve also liked a completely instrumental experimental electronic track (William’s Song), it may open the doors to some of the genre for me.
