Kone - Tractatus (2011)


you'd think an album that namechecks/quotes Wittgenstein's most famous work would be an insufferably pompous undertaking. instead, it's a rather casual and easy-going affair, as Kone effortlessly synthesizes a wide range beat-making techniques - here some slinky g-funk, there a wobble, a breakbeat. but always present are the funky bass and the incredible percussion work, which really drives the record and makes it unique among the hordes of instrumental beat releases that are the norm these days. one of my favorite releases of the year, for sure.

"motherfucker, did you just quote Nietzsche?"
