Massive Attack/Mos Def : I Against I

Product:

Massive Attack/Mos Def : I Against I

The Attack return after a four year absence minus Mushroom but with a one-off collaboration with Mos Def that’s darker than the Gobi Desert at night and heavier than five lunchtime courses at La Gavroche (yes, NME’s punning research budget knows no limit).

And yet despite how forbidding that sounds, there’s a rhythmic spring in the step of ‘I Against I’ that keeps this fresh, clean, modern and vital – it’s pretty much the most perfectly shaded piece of electro hip hop heard in these parts for aeons.
