Blockhead – Free Sweatpants – The Instrumentals
There are two Blockheads.
There is the Blockhead that has been a fixture of the electronic music scene for more than since his 2004 Ninja Tune debut Music By Cavelight; putting out a string of critically acclaimed albums and touring with everyone from Diplo to Amon Tobin and Kid Koala.
Then there is the rap producer Blockhead, whose collaborations with Aesop Rock-Labor Days, None Shall Pass– are part of indie hip-hop canon. The veteran who collaborated with luminaries like Cage, Illogic and Blueprint but also made memorable records with then little-known artists like Despot and billy woods early in their careers.
Free Sweatpants is the first time the two Blockhead’s connect, in what is really the most appropriate form. A mixtape-esque album that pairs his narrative-driven solo aesthetic with a team of rappers that thrive in Blockhead’s layered, melodic sound. On this instrumental version, instead comes with two EXCLUSIVE bonus tracks: One features Curly Castro & billy woods, and the other is a TELEVANGEL remix of “Kiss the Cook” featuring Aesop Rock & billy woods!
“It’s really something I have been wanting to do since way back in 2002 but then other things picked up and I just never got around to it” Blockhead explains, “but I felt like this was a good time for it. These are artists I actively listen to, so it was exciting to make just based on that.”
