Grimace Federation – “Measure In Mixture, The” – [Rhymesayers Ent.]

niles   8/26/2015   12-inch, A Library

Philly psychsters Grimace Federation team up with Aesop Rock (of Hail Mary Malone and Rhymesayers) to rip bongs and blow minds on this clear 12″ LP (a debateable title, given that the whole shabang clocks in around 17 mins.) GF coaxes the spirit from your body with trancendental intrumentals on Side 1, both a nod to post-rockers and hip-hop heads alike. Peaks and troughs, mountains and valleys, ebbs and flows to create a sonic soundscape both dense and warm, like grandmas homemade bread when she forgot the yeast. Aesop takes over on Side 2 for some bass-heavy remixes. B1 is a remix of A2, chopping and screwing the melody almost past the edge, with nods to the early days of breakbeats in the rhytym. B2 provides another 808 driven, low-end dose of tripped out tenderness. 3WR: Psych Rap Mania
