Brooklyn rapper and Anti-Pop Consortium man Beans is set to release his second solo album, and his first away from Warp, on February 28th. Distributed via Anticon, ‘End It All’ comes backed by a wealth of top notch producers including Four Tet, Tobacco and Interpol’s Sam Fogarino and peppered with collaborators from Tortoise to In Flagranti. On this short but sweet double bass-propelled freebie, ‘Mellow You Out’, TV On The Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe does his thing. It’s awesome. And any track that namechecks PM Dawn is alright by me.
