Chop, No Mince! by Records On Ribs published on 2012/12/19 14:40:25 +0000 Justin Colley AKA Blue Ducks is a unique voice in the UK hip-hop scene. His first full length release sees him step out from behind the MPC to deliver a combination of hazy party jams, experimental rap and warm glitching hip-hop. Woozy synthesizers, harp and cut and paste combine with surrealist rhymes - Oneironauts kicks out the skittering jams before you can say “early Hemlock Records”. Neon Confusion fizzes with fierce energy and word play, while Let’s Play features lush synths, delicate bells and gorgeous sampling - just beautiful. We’re Not In Kansas Anymore sees heart on sleeve backpacker introspection melt into the spacey vistas of Some Girls... Blue Ducks comes fresh from shows with Doseone, Gift of Gab (Blackalicious), Baths and Oneohtrix Point Never. Heavy Air represents an artist confident at the height of his powers.
