A beast of a posse cut here, masterminded by Bristol-based producer, Sam Krats. For the aptly titled, Culture, Krats has brought together legends from across the Atlantic, thanks to a selection of homegrown talent and a guest spot from Juice Crew veteran, Craig G. Raps from this side of the water are provided by MysDiggi, Gee Bag, Ramson Badbonez and Phoenix Da Icefire, as well as some technical assistance from Jazz T. The vinyl edition also features a heavy remix courtesy of Da Beatminerz. You can find more info on that via Revorg Records.
A quality debut album from one of the finest purveyors of boom bap in the UK right now, as Parallax releases Auditory Vision. Having built up a name for himself through live shows and his 2014 EP, Depth Perception, the London MC has spent the last few years putting together his debut full-length. The wait was well worth it, with AV demonstrating exactly how his talents have been honed in that four year interim. The features help to bolster the album’s appeal too, with Rakaa Iriscience, C.A.M and Phoenix Da Icefire helping Parallax tear down beats from the likes of Ded Tebiase, Nappa and Wickstarr. Auditory Vision is available to stream in full below and there are also downloads, physicals and merch to nab over on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Parallax: Auditory Vision (Stream)”
