Various - Anticon Label Sampler 1999-2004
Label: Anticon
Format: CD


Cheap sampler CD, released to celebrate their fifth anniversary from the Anticon label , who continue to release "the best, freshest and most intelligent hip-hop around"

For the past five years, the Anticon label has been releasing the best, freshest and most intelligent hip-hop around. With a willingness to experiment without losing the dusty rhythms that make good hip-hop good, rappers like the brilliant Doseone, Sole and Why? create clever, funny, abstract rhymes that make Eminem sound like John Barnes. In celebration of their years of making great music, cheap as chips compilation 'Anticon Label Sampler 1999 – 2004' has been released, featuring, funnily enough, the best bits of Anticon albums released since 1999. With 33 tracks and 80 minutes worth of music, '…1999 – 2004' certainly is value for money and is a great introduction to the sound of current underground hip-hop. Spanning from the more out-there instrumental electronica of Odd Nosdam and Dosh and the folk-hop of Why? to the more straightforward beat-driven rap of Doseone and Jel’s Themselves, Anticon artists take the roots of hip-hop and grow it out in as many different directions as they can. For established Anticon fans, the album is mixed by Odd Nosdam, Why? and Jel, so better known tracks such as Sole’s Salt on Everything and Themselves’ It’s Them are worked into others that you may not have heard before. Plus, you get an idea of what an Anticon DJ set would be like, which is no bad thing.
