Circle Research – You Don’t Know Me (Radio Edit)
|Necro Unleashes First Track From Forthcoming Album DIE!
Those familiar with Necro, the Brooklyn bred rapper/producer/label-owner know that he single handedly re-defined the term “hardcore” while gaining an enormous cult following behind his flourishing indie rap empire. “asBESTos,” the first leak from his forthcoming sixth album,DIE!, finds Necro taking listeners on another ride through the darkest side of hip-hop’s rugged terrain where drum hits and calculated flows brutally assault the ears to mind-numbingly pleasant results. Connoisseurs can’t help but listen to Necro and reminisce about the days when an emcee’s worth was only as good as his words. Necro describes the track as “a go for the throat, brutal and epic” record. This is no understatement, as the Brooklyn anti-hero manages to morph flows effortlessly, bobbing and weaving through piano stabs and the threat of soaring strings. This is not hip-hop for the faint of heart.
Coming off of his 2009 production credits on the critically acclaimed Only Built For Cuban Linx II album from Wu-Tangswordsman Raekwon, quite a few folks have wondered what Necro had hidden up his sleeve. Now we know: A scorcher that reasonably predicts yet another outstanding forthcoming album, in DIE!, for Necro.
Necro’s latest album, DIE!, will be released May 18th through Necro’s own Psycho+Logical-Records / RBC / Fontana.

LETS CELEBRATE HIS LEGACY!! PEACE!!!!!!
Due to phenomenal demand and anticipation around the news of the forthcoming second self-titled Crystal Castles album on Fiction Records, the US will be following suit with the advanced UK digital release by making the album available immediately on Monday April 26th.
Following the debut of both the limited edition Record Store Day 12″ release of “Doe Deer” and first single “Celestica” last week by Zane Lowe on Radio 1, a few new tracks have since surfaced online placing the band at #1 on the Hype Machine chart today and straight to the top of Elbo.ws ‘Hot Artists’ and ‘Hot Posts’ as well. Over 460,000 plays of “Celestica” have been tracked on Last.fm to date, so by popular demand the band is making the record available now.
The antisocial duo of Ethan Kath and Alice Glass have created an unexpected level of excitement and cult loyalty, clocking up a staggering 50 million plays on MySpace and Last.fm and headlining sold out tours around the world.
Produced by Ethan Kath, tracks were recorded and written in contrasting environments around the world, including a church in Iceland, a self-built cabin in Ontario, and a garage behind an abandoned convenience store in Detroit.
