If Octavia Butler and Howard Zinn co-wrote an episode of Black Mirror while bumping Sun-Ra, The Hues Brothers' Radio Activity is the soundtrack: politically-charged electronic hip hop pushing against the gravity of apocalyptic human invention, reaching towards alternative realities. This trans-Atlantic collaboration features NYC emcee Rabbi Darkside's signature intricate wordplay atop UK producer/turntablist Mr. Simmonds' headnotic production. Radio Activity is a signal boost to a distant planet, a road map at the intersection of technology and consciousness, neon dystopian jazz for the boom bap futurist. This album is a 30-minute musical meditation steeped in poetry, soul, science fiction, sociology, resistance, Buddhism and hope. Beautifully packaged with a full-color lyrics insert to accompany the startling graphic cover art by Eena Daou.
