EL-P – one of those odd balls kids of the hip hop world. After years of putting out groundbreaking indie hip hop material, it only seems like now EL-P’s music is finding a comfortable place for it’s self in context with what is happening in the indie music scene.

Touring with Laneway Festival, EL-P did an extra show in Sydney at Oxford Art Factory for the hardcore fans. The old Co Flow fans that can mumble along convincingly to every indecipherable EL-P lyric, came out in force.

An amazing show. A whole lot of energy, a lot of jumping around, particularly when he dropped ‘Drones Over BRKLYN’. Oh and supported by Purpose, who was dope!

I almost spat coffee at the computer screen when I saw this one. I did this interview with El-P ages ago. One of the things we were talking about is a bet that he made with a friend that he couldn’t make a happy song. Years later El-P remixes Justin Bieber and he still manages to come out losing that wager.

Quickly have a listen as two polar opposites collide. You have only a few minutes before this very song creates a contradiction in the music time continuum causing the universe to implode on it’s self.
