El-P,
been around for awhile, but first heard of him via Justin Broadrick’s Techno-Animal album “Brotherhood Of The Bomb”, waay back in 2001 which is among one of my favorite albums… with collabs from I assume other artists in the East Coast underground.

And I have to toss in Otto Von Schirach too. More bass music from the 305 than rap, but still pretty far out with ladies ontage masturbation.

on the newer tip:
Ho99o9: look for these guys, great live show.

Ho99o9 are absolutely amazing.

I did live visuals for Otto in L.A. a few years back, I’ve never sweat so much in my life. That guy is absolutely insane. It was an amazing experience.

One of my best friends is one of the founders of this shop in Dublin. Their record label has some great artists on it. Check out their 7” series. Lots of dope stuff:

Maybe start with Onra’s Chinoiseries.

Aye Dean Blunt!
I always like hearing what Kanye comes up with, he gets pretty experimental with the production. To be fair a lot of hip hop is pretty experimental :slight_smile:

Lapalux ventures into “hip hop” territory as well.

Very old avant-garde.

We all have different perspectives of hip-hop. Mine is from the 14th century and into the future. But hey, I’m an old fool from the old school.

The track, ‘Public Enemy No. 1” off their first album made me love the work of Hank Shocklee.
