Beans: The End Is The Beginning

Written by Bram Gieben for The Skinny

“Anti-Pop Consortium rapper Beans is back with a new solo LP on Anticon – and this time, he’s brought Four Tet, Interpol and his special jumper along for the ride”

“Beans is one third of the seminal electronic hip-hop trio Anti-Pop Consortium. Together, APC revolutionized the rap world with their albums Ends Against The Middle and Arrhythmia, both released on Warp Records, expanding the sonic palette of rap to include booming synthetic bass, inventive glitch-y flourishes and deeply experimental rhyme patterns and lyrical techniques.”

“This time, Beans has brought a raft of guest producers in to provide the beats: ranging from Four Tet to Sam Fogarino of Interpol, Son Lux, and Tobacco. The result? A rhyme-focused, wildly inventive collection of straight-up hip-hop rhymes over exotic, leftfield beats: from the addictive funk-shuffle of the DJ Nobody-produced Deathsweater, to the menacing Mellow You Out, featuring Tunde Adebimpe of TV On The Radio.”
