As an emcee, Beans has very few peers outside his circle. Within the Antipop Consortium, his rapid staccato and distinct lyrical bent - a mix of classic rap braggadocio and fractured new school narrative - helped vault that group into cult and critical favor circa '99 alongside artists from Anticon and Def Jux. Beans also honed his own beat-making style in the group, citing seminal No-Wavers Suicide as his main influence (with nods to Sun Ra, Mantronix, Sonic Youth, Public Enemy and Autechre). Together with High Priest, M.Sayyid and Earl Blaize, Anti-Pop made four albums for labels as acclaimed as Warp Records and Big Dada, opened for Radiohead on the band's Amnesiac tour, and broke up in 2002. Over the course of three solo albums, Beans mastered his craft. Tomorrow Right Now, 2003, found him laying arty verbal swagger over skronky minimal tracks. Two years later, on Shock City Maverick, he'd doubled down on both counts, sounding more confident, fuller. And on 2008's Thorns, Beans exorcised some spiritual demons, delivering his most personal work to date. Ardamus feat. Night Train
