It’s safe to say that after being inspired by an eclectic paint palette of artists including Raekwon, Bjork, Joy Division and System of a Down, we are more than excited to receive an invitation to Danny Brown’s ‘Atrocity Exhibition’.
With the end of summer approaching the albums lead single ‘When It Rain’ definitely brings us that cold and grimy hip-hop that only Danny Brown can do. As someone who uses their albums to document their current mind-set Danny explains that he’s been taking his time to create a package that “is just my sound”, picking up where he left off from 2011’s ‘XXX’.
It’s been a long time coming since we’ve had a chance to sink our teeth into a Danny Brown project with his last major release being 2013’s “Old” but it’s definitely something worth waiting for. As the man said himself… “Aint nobody gonna be out here sounding like me, ain’t nobody gonna be out here doing what I do. I’m confident in this project to know that I’mma satisfy the people that’s already fans of my music. So, if you’re a fan of Danny Brown, you in for a treat.”
Hip-hop’s self-appointed super villain has pulled out all the stops bagging features from the likes of Ab-Soul, Kelela, B-Real, Earl Sweatshirt and hip-hop’s current superhero Kendrick Lamar. And with production duties handled by Evian Christ, The Alchemist, Black Mill and frequent south London collaborator Paul White, we think this ‘Atrocity Exhibition’ has all the ingredients to be Danny Brown’s masterpiece.
Dropping on the 30th September via Warp Records you can also follow Danny on his huge 40-date US Tour and at the Warehouse Project in Manchester on the 11th of November.
