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!
