Visioneers ‎- Hipology 2xLP / 2xCD – BBE

Dusty, nostalgic, jazzy and friendly hiphop, produced by Marc Mac, 1/2 of the influential broken beat act 4Hero. As well as housing the classy custom liners, the hefty jacket notes list the “Project Inspirations” as Kool Herc, Coke La Rock, KPM, George Duke, Phase 2, Jazzy Jeff, 45 King, DITC, Premier, Pete Rock, Danger Mouse, MF Doom, Spinna, Madlib, Kenny Dope, Ma Dukes, Gil Scott Heron, Dilla… and so on, which gives a pretty good frame of reference for what they’re going for here.

The album offers a holistic perspective on hiphop, focused as much on the musical aesthetic as the lyrics and delivery, as much on the live instrumentals as samples, and interjecting harmonic acappellas and numerous instrumental interludes alongside the chorus-verse-chorus MC-centric songs. Recommended for fans of Ubiquity, Tru Thoughts, Nightmares On Wax, and the like; timeless.

This is available as an unmixed double pack of 12″s, or alternatively in a 2xCD, one CD mixed, the other with separated individual tracks. Take your pick.
