Crimethinc. just released an online download of an excellent 4 song E.P. of instrumental anarchist hip-hop done by a Seattle based producer under the name “Underground Reverie.” Underground Reverie’s recordings are available for free download here, and below is quoted Tides Of Flame‘s (a Seattle based bi-monthly anarchist newspaper) review of the E.P. that really hits the nail on the head:
“Underground Reverie’s debut album is throbbing, haunting, and completely amazing. Samples from helicopters, owlish flutes, various films (including Network), and eerie old songs flesh out a skeleton of delicate electronic beats. The music is as much about the horrors of civilization as it is about the raw beauty of struggle. In the liner notes, UR reflects on anarchist praxis and encourages us to keep fighting.”
Crimethinc. is also taking donations for legal support of those arrested in last month’s building occupation in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Whether or not you provide monetary support, I highly encourage those who would consider themselves comrades and enjoy a handful of fat beats to check out this release. I would say the only good anarchist hip-hop recording to date.
