Paul White - 'Watch The Ants EP'

Album Info

  • Release Date: July 28, 2013
  • Label: One-Handed Music
7 / 10 Perpetually underrated producer Paul White is not your average hip-hop head. In 2010, for example, he produced an album using only samples from Swedish psych-rock act ST Mikael – not the kind of behaviour you’d expect from Timbaland. That White has managed to attract guests of the calibre of Danny Brown to ‘Watch The Ants’ is a mark of the quality of his beats, which mine obtuse samples from folk and jazz to offbeat effect. Brown collaboration ‘Street Lights’ is among the many highlights, boding well for the pair’s work on Brown’s new album, ‘Old’, out this summer.
