Thavius Beck

I heard this guy on the Big Dada podcast with his song "Go". I loved it immediatly with it's heavy electronic glitchy beat. Immediatly made me think of Saul Williams. Turns out Beck raps with and I guess helps make beats for Williams. Anyway, his new album is out and it is really solid. The Mush Records release date says 2010 but you can download it now, probably cause the record is out on Big Dada in Europe.

The beats are all over the place, in a good way and the lyrics are actually worth listening to, positive but not cheesy as well as societal critique that's not prosaic. "Go" is still my favorite track with it's heavy/hard beat and inspirational message.

These beats though...man...
