Just discovered them thru the best new music dealy on Pitchfork. It's pretty fucking good right?
More like this maybe?
well yeah, Company Flow are one of my all time favourite groups and hiphop artists. Funcrusher + Plus and the instrumental record are stunning... next step is to seek EL-P and Def Jux Label and you're away with the fishies.
im hoping Company Flow reform for ATP one day.
company flow freaken rule
like the man above says, el-p's solo stuff (first stop 'fantastic damage' i reckon) should be on your list, also cannibal ox (album 'the cold vein'), then check out the definitive jux label... lots of awesome artists on there.
stuff you might like, off the top of my head
mf doom (also doom, king gheedorah, viktor vaughn, dangerdoom, madvillain)
and been all like "i should check this out more" and never get round to it. I'm going to now!
Mr Lif is an essential too...
HELLS YES from me! xD
i got onto anticon after def jux, but it's a lot different.. dunno, check out cLOUDDEAD and go from there if you like it!
And have been rocking it again all day. Really dense stuff that has most definitely stood the test of time. Tomatron has it right up above, here is the page to see some more of the "jukies" and what they are all on about http://www.definitivejux.net/jukies .
The last sentence of the P4k review: "As abrasive and confrontational as this album might've sounded in the Bentley-buying shiny-suit atmosphere of 1997, Funcrusher Plus seems both more vital and more unfathomable now: vital because its independent-minded ethos seems to be getting its long-awaited validation in the post-going-diamond era, and unfathomable because few of its practitioners have been able to extend this far out into the furthest reaches of abstract lyricism and still retain that classic b-boy connection."
Along with El-P's solo stuff, some of the best hip-hop I've ever heard. Genuinely brilliant.
