Ghislain Poirier's jumps to Chocolate Industries for BEATS AS POLITICS, a hip-hop heavy album that starts off with the introductory funk of "New Ideas" before jumping into the chopped rhythms and vaguely Middle Eastern woodwinds of "Civil Disobedience (Version)." Diverse delivers some sharp lyrics on "Gray Space," while hints of dub wobble into "De L'Art De La Fellation." But "Montréal Dans Ma Tête" swoons back into the instrumentals, as smooth as it is woozy. "Rien En Grave" adds some subdued reverb effects to its lazy electro, and "Astheure" swerves into a more stripped-down style to close out the album. An easy listen, though not quite as memorable as what Poirier would produce with Ninja Tune.
