Product Details


Anxiety can be crippling. Shortness of breath. Dizziness. Tightness in the chest.


Both members of Dark Time Sunshine - Northwest Oldominion rapper Onry Ozzborn and Chicago producer Zavala - have long suffered from anxiety, carrying the constant weight of fear of these symptoms coming on at a moments notice. Their latest album, ANX, fully encapsulates their respective disorders - and at the same time became an outlet through which they both overcame them. The creation of music is the essential part of their lives - an escape, a place of serenity - also an outlet to vent their emotions. The most extremes of emotions: panic/ patience, happiness/ depression, strength/ weakness, love/ hate & trust/ betrayal.

The mood of the album reflects these extremes and is bi-polar at times, from calm to manic. The production set by Zavala is a backdrop that identifies with overcoming anxiety and panic attacks, based mainly in analog synthesizers and heavy drum breaks. Drawing inspiration from not only the classic hip hop and psychadelia they are known for, but jazz and electronic as well, which gives the album it's tension and release, an added flicker of unpredictability. Mature and confident, ANX is a valiant album about taking control of one's life and overcoming the fears that restrain us all. Featuring special guest appearances by Aesop Rock, P.O.S., Busdriver and more!

"ANX is a monster"
- Seattle Stranger

"..simply well put-together rap music that may or may not have been created in our galaxy."

Comment: The keys,synth and effects on this album really touch me, very inspirational, Being a mostly indie/shoegaze/garage/noise rock musician & song writer I am VERY particular about hip-hop production (Most is very lack luster void of experimentation) That is not the case here simply put this album is beautiful.

Comment: I hate saying what this reminds me to everything, but reminds me of Grouch/Eligh, but maybe with a little beastie boys and Boogiemonsters together. Frickin' fresh and thanks for some new shizzle guys...Made my month/year. I'm excited to see what else you guys got. Down here waitin' for some new fresh stuff and you guys got me listenin' over and over! Stuff been way too intense coming out with the same producer hardcore beat stuff. This is, like the others say, resfreshing. My next excursion will be nice cause of you guys.

Comment: Was a little concerned about this one considering how dope vessel was, that Zavala & Onry would fold from pressure or something. Well...they definitely did NOT. This is the best stuff I've heard in a long ass time. Onry comes correct as always and Zavala come with the electro-symphony ass beats.

Comment: its been a pretty incredible summer for indie hip hop releases - killer mike, el-p, bigg jus, doseone, open mike eagle, aesop rock and more have all dropped exceptional albums... but then ANX came out, sonning everything. it can only truly be described as beautiful, in the purest sense. when I describe the theme of the album, anxiety, to some heads they give me a weird look, but this is not a depressing album, it is a transcendent one that will literally make you feel better even if you've never experienced anxiety. Zavala's unparalleled, incomparablely genius production incorporates such incredible sounds and tones they literally feel like they heal your brain; and the critically underrated Onry Ozzborn comes with a impeccably focused clarity to his rhymes on ANX as opposed to the (also ridiculously dope) abstractions of Vessel. ANX is a perfectly flowing album w/ 14 masterful tracks, no skippers, no filler. Never Cry Wolf is one of the greatest 'pop' songs i've ever heard - it should be playing on every radio station if the world that made any sense. Do your soul a favor - buy this album, play it for all of your friends and spread the DTS love!!!

Comment: Wow, the music on this CD is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. I'm normally a boom-bap kind of a guy, but the music on this CD is so damn refreshing it's ridiculous. My hats off to the producer Zavala, who created an amazing instrumental landscape for Onry Ozzborn to rhyme over. I could certainly see this group being the next group to blow up and I am going to make certain to see them live whenever the opportunity presents itself. Congratulations DTS - you have floored me with joy.

Comment: Yeah I agree with Rain..I've been listening to DTS for years now and they always find a way to come with something new, while still keeping their incredibly unique sound. This is definitely one of my favorite albums of the year, if not hip hop album of the year..Onry was at his best and zavala is always on point. Never ceases to amaze me, even with my rising expectations with each new project

Comment: These 2 are a special combination of genius. Album of the year by far. Zavala sons anyone out right now. And Onry is one hell of a poet. I didn't think Vessel could be topped. And I don't think it was with this album. It's more like a brother or sister was added to the family. Continually lighting a fire under my ass to keep up with these dude. A MUST purchase.
