More Info:

Standard weight, yellow vinyl. Crucial Toronto rapper / producer / DJ Myst Milano. Returns with thrilling new album Beyond the Uncanny Valley, an exhilarating ride through hedonistic experimental hip-hop and house music that reinterprets the breadth of Black electronic music with addictive singular energy. "I offer Beyond the Uncanny Valley as a working anthology of Black electronic music across generational, geographical and genre lines," Myst Milano. #writes. "I thought a lot about staples of Black art across the world that can be traced back to Africa, and that link the diaspora regardless of where our people end up and throughout all eras." A mighty example of this omnivorous and multifaceted awareness of Black creativity, Beyond the Uncanny Valley is a tidal wave, swallowing up Canadian House, Detroit Electro, Chicago Footwork, UK Jungle and Dubstep, Jersey / Baltimore / Philly Club, Southern Hip-Hop and West Coast Funk into the trail of euphoric destruction left by Myst Milano.'s trademark grimy, sweaty, lusty neo-R&B take on contemporary hip-hop. Opening with "Thirteen", the album hits with punch and immediacy. The track's thumping kick and swirling, haunted synthesis represent Myst Milano.'s keen ability to nurture perfect symbiosis between production, arrangement and lyrical theme. It is equal parts dreamy, provocative, sexy and powerful, and, together, entirely unique to myst's creative voice. As with Beyond the Uncanny Valley as a whole, it is evocatively storytelling, mixing vivid imagery with slick wordplay. We are introduced to myst's groupie (formerly "a hater"), as their crew "causes damage you can't afford", while witty threats and erudite posturing flow out over a steadily expanding instrumentation that mimics myst's breathless, sweatbox DJ sets.
