It’s quite often that I discover an artist or label’s back catalog in the wake of a more popular release, The Ronin on Neosonic is one of those moments. A collection of wandering tracks, excellent, but never quite fitting on any of the other releases of the label up to this point. Sensible beats, excellent lyricism and minimalist turntablism make this a stand-out for me.
bonus: don’t miss Neosonic’s Hero Muzik Vol. 1, a hip-hop arrangement of beats from the sounds of Final Fantasy VI
