Anti-Pop Consortium is one of the most groundbreaking hip-hop groups of
the past dozen years. Beans, High Priest, M. Sayyid and producer Earl
Blaize met through poetry slams in New York City in the late 90s. They went on to release
music on Dan the Automator's
experimental hip-hop label 75 Ark, and Warp Records. After a five-year
hiatus to pursue other projects, APC reformed in 2007 to record a new
album, and play shows with the likes of Public Enemy. Fluorescent Black, APC's first proper album since 2002's Arrhythmia, was releaesd by Big Dada on October 10th 2009.
