Having released left-field hip-hop in all manor of avenues from Flying Lotus's L.A. escapism & Anti-Pop Consortium's visionary tech-rap to the greyscale electro of mid period Autechre, Warp have always pushed the outer boundaries of hip-hop and in Danny Brown they have found an artist that perfectly fits into this lineage.
Named after the Joy Division track and also the Ballard novel (to which Joy Division lifted the title) Atrocity Exhibition features fifteen tracks of blunted scale that draw a full pair of lungs worth of influence from Ballard's experimental, condensed novels that make up his Atrocity Exhibition to the hidden yet public existential crisis of Joy Division's original. Danny Brown twists and spins his narrative of startlingly singular cuts over the rawest drumz this side of the D.
