As an avid Aesop fan, I have made it a personal quest to find all of the music he has released to date. His unique style is one that never grows old. However, I wasn't a huge fan of the Bazooka Tooth album (though it was still artistic and innovative). That was, until I heard the Rockhead EP by J. Kingz. In a seemingly odd combination, J. Kingz fuses the avante-garde musings of Aesop with the beautifully eerie downtempo music of Portishead. And this is not just your typical mash-up or a sloppy slapping-together of two opposing styles and genres. J. Kingz blends the two equally inspiring artists into something that sounds totally unique. Each beat and vocal sample taken from Portishead is chosen to suit the tone and mood of the flows laid down by Aesop (courtesy of Bazooka Tooth). Not to take away from Aesop or Portishead in their original forms, but J. Kingz gives the selected tracks a whole new feel and vibe. I highly recommend this to any Aesop Rock and/or Portishead fan, not as a replacement for the artists' original works, but as an excellent tribute.
