Yesterday I was alerted to the fact that billy woods’ upcoming album is being produced by Aesop Rock & Blockhead. As fans of the two will know, Blockhead produced a lot of Aesop’s earlier work before AR himself took over the reins on Skelethon and The Impossible Kid. It’s fair to say Blockhead’s work had a big influence on Aesop’s own production, so I’m keen to hear how the two of them sound side by side, on the same record. And billy woods always hits the mark anyway, so all in all this should be a pretty damn good project. Groundhogs Day is the first single and is produced by Blockhead. The album, Known Unknowns, is out on 9 June on the Backwoodz Studioz label. Pre-orders are available here.
