When NYC's Anti-Pop Consortium split in 02, they were quick to point out that the group was never supposed to be a long-term project. Then Beans went solo and made some ear-graters on wax, while M. Sayyid and High Priest (the other two guys) formed Airborn Audio and brought the heat of a Mercury summer to Good Fortune. Beyond its Ninja Tune branding, this LP is a sure shot due to its combination of brainy rhymes and catchy hooks over that ol' post-nuclear-winter disco shit. Though electro-rap with weird key progressions often feels cold, after a couple of spins you'll find yourself dancing in your bedroom and dropping warped science along with AA. You won't miss Beans for a second.
