Don't sleep! The newest project from Aesop Rock, Rob Sonic,& DJ Big Wiz will be available in digital format tomorrow!
Aesop Rock and Rob Sonic have been constant collaborators over the years, both live and in the studio. It took the legendary turntable styling of DJ Big Wiz to birth the unstoppable Hail Mary Mallon. Named after Mary Mallon aka Typhoid Mary (the first person in US identified as a carrier of the pathogen associated with typhoid fever), the trio plans to spread their infectious blend of powerful production and back-forth rhyme schemes all over the world. Their first single, "Smock", adds synthesizers and ambient tones that subtlety rest atop the dark beat while "Breakdance Beach" keeps focus on the tight kickdrum and distorted handclaps. The contrast of production-heavy tracks with punching lines and stripped down bangers with light-hearted hooks allow the album to never lose your attention.
