I Roll With It
“Tirade Highway (Its Her Factory)” by APSCI vs Gang Of Four
Okay, just a quick Saturday post again, as its a nice day outside and I want to go run around in the city.
For those of you who have been following along, you know APSCI and MFR have been working together for a while, and they appear on MFR Vol. 1 – well, this mashup is straight from the band, and I think its some hot shit, combining what I believe will be their new single with Gang Of Four’s classic “Its Her Factory.”
Their full-length album, Thanks For Asking, finally dropped on Quannum this last Tuesday, and I can tell you it is a trip.
With crazy good programming to back the vocal dexterity of Dana (the classically trained former opera-singer Aussie) and Ra’s rhymes – Ra produced most of the album, but he’s also joined by beatboxer Guy Licata, DJ Big Wiz (resident Def Jux DJ), and DJ Boo (Jugganots) – the album is intense. On the vocal tip, the album also features Mr. Lif, Tunde of TV on the Radio, Martin of Antibalas, and Quannum label-mates VURSATYL of Lifesavas and Pigeon John. Solid stuff.
Also, for those of you in the dirty Big City, APSCI are doing a Monday-night residency at Pianos in the lower east side – I’m not sure what kind of madness they’re gonna get up to, but since this Monday is the first, be sure to roll through and check out the scene.
