Blue Ducks make hip-hop in the proud post-Dilla tradition: swaggering, off-kilter, brimming with ideas and destined to the direction of knowing head nods globally. Effortlessly flowing from the MPC, micro-glitches meld with deliciously placed spoken-word samples, expansive organs to flickers of late wonky electronica and aqua-crunk, classic boom-bap drums to deep ambience and swelling strings. Dance music for those too cool to dance (as well as those who love to dance).
Blue Duck’s first full length release – a heady combination of hazy party jams, experimental rap and warm glitching hip-hop. Woozy synthesizers, harp and cut and paste combine with surrealist rhymes, sharp sampling and a fierce energy. Stunning stuff from a unique voice in the UK hip-hop scene.
A fresh cut of sharply appointed bloop-hop. 8-bit chirps, cut up pianos, smooth beats, woozy synths and enough extra-terrestrial pitch wheel abuse to keep the cockles warm as winter closes in.
