Product Description


It somehow seems fitting that Company Flow bowed out while birthing El-P's new label Def Jux. Def Jux Presents collects the first EP release (a Co Flow/Cannibal Ox split single) along with several tracks showcasing Def Jux's new breed. Sounding like some insidious teenage syndrome that El-P never managed to rid himself of, Co Flow's "Drum Pattern Awareness" rocks out the box first. Its multi-part, symphonic structure flips back and forth from epic, bass-thumping battle beats to a sombre and sober half-speed mantra. On "Simian D", El and Mr Len monkey around with fellow sick-minded rap felon, Ill Bill (formerly of Non-Phixion), seemingly rhyming about some retrogressive narcotic hell (the "d" stands for "drugs"). Lyrical vikings, Cannibal Ox contribute two impressive cuts from their Cold Vein album, "Iron Galaxy" and "Straight Off The D.I.C". RJD2's laid-back instrumental "Silver Fox" feels like an anomaly following El-P's brace of dense, chest-beating productions. But Aesop Rock's vindictive "Kill Em All" puts things back on track as it unfolds over the sound of knives being sharpened and a disorientating percussive bass rhythm. Aesop mutters darkly, sounding like the kind of bedroom psychotic who fits. Co Flow's "Simple" close this definitive juxtaposition with an acidic lick of electric guitar played back and forward like a bucksaw. Chop your heads. --Chris Campion

If your a real Def Jux fan then you already have almost every song on this album, if your new to Def Jux then you should pick this up as an introduction to a great hip hop label.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Shape of Things to Come... Aug. 6 2002
Format:Audio CD
Not too crazy about the first 2 tracks, but the contributions by Cannibal Ox and RJD2 make this 7 song disc worth every penny. Can Ox should appeal to fans of both indie hip hop and the more thuggish variety, with their gritty beats and suffocating lyrics. RJD2 provides a very pleasant instrumental and El-P expels some ugly demons from within. Aesop Rock also does his thing on "Kill 'Em All." Most importantly, this album is just a taste of what El-P's label will be putting out for years to come. This is like a baseball team with loads of young talent.

THis is the realest rawest oh yeah. This is so real it makes reality appear as fiction.You just don't know you will never know.WHatever.I like Company Flow as much as the next man but this isn't anything to get hysterical about.Interesting beats and rhymes but this album by no means contains great songs.More filler than killer.Buy FUNCRUSHER PLUS and COLD VEIN.

5.0 out of 5 stars don't sleep Aug. 7 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album is raw. There is no other way to explain it. I like probably half of the cd's I ever purchase, and rarely do I like something a given artist has done on more than one album, but I can state unequivocally that Company Flow et. al. put 110% into every song that they create. And don't let the small number of tracks fool you, these are long cuts that provide plenty of listening time. I'm glad to see that the coflo tradition is alive and kicking.
