    Product Details


    Categorzing Shabazz Palaces is nearly impossible. The Seattle group led by Palaceer Lazaro (aka Ishmael "Butterfly" Butler formerly of Digable Planets & Cherrywine) has surpassed all genre confines and captured the imaginatioons of spectators. Containing a sublime mixture of funk, jazz, dubstep and structures un-echoed by the typical style of 16 bar hip-hop. Shabazz Palaces quickly gained critical admiration following an unprecedented string of epic performances accross their home city. Shabazz Palaces' music is defiant in the face of musical norms both in terms of sheer musicianship and lyricism. Experimental, innovative and irresistable, "Of Light" is sure to be heralded by listeners not satisfied with the status quo.

    Comment: Glad to see this on vinyl just disappointed it's on very cheap, noisy green vinyl that feels like hard plastic. My 1st copy came with a free 1in, audible scratch due to the poor vinyl quality.

    Comment: yeah I don't expect ishmael to be doing the same old dig plans thing, but just do *something* that I can get into. I haven't found a single SP song I feel at all. all the social media music blogs love the shit though, so at least they got that goin' for them. LARS, really? I figured you'd love this.

    Comment: this is one of the best hip hop releases of the past few years. it's next level hip hop. the other reviewers seem to expect ish to be creating the same music as he was 20 years ago, and display no artistic growth. however, this future classic shows that he's still one of the only true hiphop heads, meaning his stuff sounds like nothing else out there. stick with milk if you can't take vodka LARS

    Comment: This album is a huge disappointment for Digable Planet fans like myself. Ishmeal "Butterly" fails with this release which has been available for download for long over a year. Why would they drop it on cd is a big mystery to me. Save your money on this one! I hope UGHH did not order too many pieces of this for stock!
