Agnarkea - Black Helicopters
Keeping us awake at night: the twenty tracks that comprise Richmond, Virginia-based producer Agnarkea (Keaton Transue)'s brilliant debut, Black Helicopters, cut straight to the chase with such titles as "PSYOP," "Blue Beam," and "unite fight." At twenty years old, Transue's music has a genuine urgency in his call for revolt.
A member of the Southern hip-hop crew WaistDeep Clique, Transue's punk ethos and primitive production provide the backbone for masterful chopped 'n' screwed, fluidly collaged genre twists, laced with audio elucidating today’s socio-political climate, conspiracy theory dialogue eerily threaded though.
