Drum break please... The wait is officially over. Definitive Jux proudly presents the first single from Fantastic Damage, the solo record from Def Jux impresario, frontman the legendary Company Flow, and indie music icon, El-P. "Deep Space 9 mm" is the perfect lead-off to what promises to be one of the most talked about records of the year. Full of cyborg funk, and melodic vapor trails, and of course, and El-P's unparalleled lyricism. Effortlessly stretching the boundaries of the genre once again with ass-shaking results, this record will blow your mind as well. The B-side, Toon Mast Damper, is signature El-P: a straight-up B-Boy banger bound to find it's way onto turntables everyhwere.
After setting the table in 2001, with with several successful releases (incl. Cannibal Ox's Cold Vein and Aesop Rock's labor Days, El-P shifts into full artist mode and is destined to make a major impact in indie hip hop this year. He's also co-producing the solo album from ex-Rage Against the Machine frontman Zach de la Rocha (Epic), co-producing an album with Dan "the Automator" (MCA) and remixing the lead single from the new album of British indie rock darlings, Cornershop.
In addition to this single and the album, we'll be releasing additional singles and videos, and El-P will be touring the world throughout 2002.
