Album Rating: 4.8

Airospace is another of the anime obsessed, enigmatic artists whose work is buried deep within the unfathomable archive that is Bandcamp, and he happens to have released the best hip hop tape of the year in the form of Senjougahara Hitagi [vol. II], named for the Bakemonogatari cover seductress. Quite simply, it's extremely unhinged (in both flow and production), and from this yields a series of dark, masterful, labyrinthine verses attached to mysterious, eclectic, and positively nuts beats. But, far from being driven by aggression or shock value like Death Grips or Tyler, the Creator, the music is unquestionably the most overpowering aspect of Airospace's insane dream in that it's so very easy to get lost in. It's complex, drifting, lush, raw, free-form, surreal, and psychologically scary; rich experimental hip hop that plays like the soundtrack to an uber-arthouse visual anime experiment from the minds of insane, psychopathic versions of Earl Sweatshirt and Flying Lotus. Needless to say, it's fresher than a barrage of my shitty similes and adjectives can describe.

One of my favorite hip-hop albums I've heard in the last year. One of those albums on bandcamp where i start listening and think to myself, "Who is this? Why have I missed this. He's most likely very famous." Very tightly knit mature album. This unbelievable that Airospace isn't farther into the public eye. And with frequent anime references? Couldn't get better. I see good things in the future for Airospace.
