One of our favorite instrumentalist artists is back, as Blockhead preps his next LP, Interludes After Midnight, due May 1st. He talks about here: As for the whole idea behind the art work, the idea came from me thinking about a time before the internet and cell phones. Basically, the late 80′s/early 90′s. The album [cont.]

From 900Bats This is Aesop Rock, Eyedea, and Slug, rapping on a Blockhead beat in about 1999 or 2000. Huge shout to Despot for holding on to this all these years. This beat later appeared on Aesop Rock’s Labor Days LP as Bent Life (Feat. C-Rayz Walz). Here is a few words from Aes – [cont.]

As the story goes, Blockhead and some friends got together for a project with Joanna Erdos of The Midnight Show on vocals, called The Mighty Jones.

These have been around the last few weeks, slowly making their way around the internet. Blockhead uploads FOUR VOLUMES of unreleased instrumentals for your consumption.

But while Shadow seemed to abandon that style [cont.]
Several months back, Blockhead threatened on his MySpace blog that he was working on an album of “happy beats”. Besides his work with Aesop Rock, he’s primarily known for constructing sample based masterpieces like Music By Cavelight and it’s worthy follow-up Downtown Science. Block’s moody beats have become the safe alternative for those still wondering when DJ [cont.]
Many accidental children were had, many blunts were smoked, and many tears were cried to the sounds of 2004′s “Music By Cavelight” by Blockhead. This seminal release was the official debut from the NYC instrumentalist, who back then was best known for his Aesop Rock production on “Labor Days” and other LP’s. A year [cont.]
Originally introduced as the man providing the sonic backdrops to Aesop Rock’s first two official releases, Float and Labor Days, Blockhead shared production duties on last year’s Bazooka Tooth with other producers, most likely to work on his instrumental opus for Ninja Tune, Music By Cavelight.
