Press release:

"The first full length record from Hype Williams. Through 35 minutes, Blunt and Copeland transmit their vision of a self contained plane, seamed by an index of long distance keyboard glaze, rent-a-car night coasters through to programmed and screwed constructs of songs, musical absurdities and free, lifted improv jams.

Luckily, the majority of these descriptive translations probably fall short: At points it sounds rewardingly indescribable and yet as a full length statement, fully realised and formed. Embracing the crud and sheen of mainstream components and trading pound for pound with no-zone freedom. "All because the camels love Bubble Kush." Packaged in the starkly minimal and perfectly accompanying artwork of Ed Lehan.

CAR002. 300 copies."

All mysticism and pretentiousness about Dean Blunt & co. aside, this is actually a really decent and enjoyable album. The signature production methods continued throughout the existence of Hype Williams, but the core aesthetic, at least in my opinion, is very pleasing. Sure, the genre and the act may be criticized by some as "hipster trash" or just a wave influenced by media such as the Needle Drop/Pitchfork, but really -- I find the production soothing and interesting.

In my opinion, the strongest Hype release. It's ambient for the the social media generation.
