Get all of Kevin Martin records. From genius alt hip-hop stuff with Antipop and Dalek as Techno Animal to dark, 3AM dubscapes with last's year King Midas Sound stuff, he's basically the boss.
are very good, similar to a lot of the stuff here.
by a guy called Team Teamwork, basically its song from Ocarina of Time (Zelda) mixed with rappers like MF DOOM, Clipse, Spank Rock, Jay-Z, and its fucking amazing. Check it out.
Try DJ /Rupture's album Uproot. Made my top 10 of the decade, which applied to all genres.
Also, an obvious choice but Enter the Wu-Tang is another classic.
All been great.
I can only reiterate all the albums listed that i have, not a bad album listed yet.
Flying Lotus - L.A.
Nosaj Thing - Drifts
Mos Def - The Ecstatic
Madvillain - Madvillainy
Viktor Vaughn - Vaudeville Villain
J Dilla - Donuts
King Geedorah - Take Me To Your Leader
Danger Mouse & Jemini - Ghetto Pop Life
Deltron 3030 - S/T
El-P - I'll Sleep When You're Dead
GZA - LIQUID SWORDS
Dr Octagon - Ecologyst (Mo'Wax). Still does the business for me every time, with lyrics that tread the fine line between surreality and obscenity.
