Cannibal Ox’s The Cold Vein is one of the definitive rap records of our time. Its psychedelic sonic nitty gritty tales, helped by El-P’s production nous, of New York’s underbelly still resonate 14 years later.
Earlier this year, the duo Vast Aire and Vordul Mega released a new album Blade Of The Ronin, which wasn’t considered on the cards a few years back. What’s more, the pair are playing a gig in Dublin tomorrow night at Button Factory.
Even better, I have tickets to giveaway to the show on Tuesday night, so just email me on [email protected] with Cannibal Ox as the subject and your name in the body before Tuesday at noon.
