They’re harder to Google than you’d think, but Ancient Astronauts are worth the extra searching. I’ve been really digging the eclectic, Automator-esque sound of the German (!) duo’s forthcoming album Into Bass and Time, and you should, too: it’s hip-hop for people who want to listen to songs, not ringtones. A winning mix of breakbeats, funk, soul, and dub, I’ve yet to find a song worth skipping.
They also seem to be good people, to boot: they’re giving away the excellent instrumental album cut “Worldwide,” which has spent a lot of time in my playlists recently — listen/download below:
Into Bass and Time is out March 8, and you can purchase it directly from them at eslmusic.com. Definitely worth your bucks if you’re a fan of Cut Chemist and RJD2’s older work.
