Best Of 2010 Albums - El-P

We don’t have room to discuss who EL-P is here, but the Def Jux founder and maverick producer has taken time out of producing albums for Cannibal Ox, Cage, Mr. Lif, Aesop Rock, NIN, Beck and The Mars Volta to drop some serious beats. Being deployed almost like a mixtape, this is a razor-sharp compendium of short edits revealing the true vision of EL-P where he gives readings on how to draw a sonic arc that coherently unifi es muddy breaks, cinematic hip-hop, cosmic jams and simply unique acidic synth rippers that sound like DJ Vadim wired on meth about to commit crazed murder at a dubstep rave.

Best Bit: ‘How To Serve Man (Stripped)’ is as biting and acerbic a break as you’ll fi nd in any twelve months. Weapons grade beats.
