For years, Anti-Pop Consortium have been releasing the type of hip hop that immediately demands your attention yet requires multiple listens (and close studying) to really decipher the genius being blasted to your brain. Having been championed by tastemaker labels such as Dan The Automator's now defunct 75Ark, Warp and Ninja Tune/Big Dada, there is no doubt of the importance of their contribution in pushing hip hop forward.

In an effort to help more people fully understand what it takes to live Anti-Pop, founding member High Priest aka HPrizm started a new blog called BangoutSessions, where he discusses production tools and techniques (complete with video tutorials and gear reviews), puts you up on the best music you're probably never heard and even has special guests drop by to participate.

If you love APC's music as much as I do, you might be interested to get a sneak peek at where they get their fire from, how they create and just as important, how damn funny they are!
