The sound that will not die in hip-hop isn't Autotune, or even boombap — it's horrorcore. I'm hearing it everywhere at the moment, and it can't just be down to '90s nostalgia. Partly I think it's down to the times we're in BEING so horrific, partly I think it's a thirst for the dark and disturbing coming from the explosion of interest in genre fiction and horror films in the past decade. Either way, 'Epicenter' is horrorcore to the max, spooky spirals of Goblin funk undercutting an atmosphere so doomed, it's like a Shaw Brothers production. Guest spots from Inspektah Deck and Raekwon keep things deliciously dank throughout. Better than you might have hoped.
