A glitch in Matrix

What’s this? A rapper featuring alongside Kendrick Lamar, Eminem and Earl Sweatshirt is also inspired by and directly sampling from NIN, Hawkwind, Joy Division (via J.G Ballard) and This Heat? Is this a glitch in the hip hop system? No, because in Danny Brown’s imagination glitches are welcome. Any interference, visual or sonic, has a place in his way of understanding music as an altered state of consciousness. Rhapsodies to disruption. Eclogues on crossing the line. Free verse about the ghost in the machine. In his darkie trilogy XXX, Old and Atrocity Exhibition, he portrays distorted exteriors and psychotic interiors. Brrr... it is always cold in the lyrical poetry of this landscaper of post-industrial Detroit. It chills you to the bone. Like post-punk. This is post-hip hop for the post-internet era.
