Beat Detectives – ASSCOP

At first I thought that the name “Beat Detectives” couldn’t be any further from the kind of zonked out, bastardized plunderphonics that this Minneapolis based trio were putting forthe on their previous cassettes. But with ASSCOP, a hiliarously sleazy cassette on 1080p they finally get to the source of their name, shovelling through weird half-beats, burned out club vibes and samples from commercials splattered all over the place. Somewhere betweeen the sneer of vaporwave and the legitimate weirdness of Madlib’s psilocybin rap masterpiece The Unseen, the new release by Beat Detectives walks the line of psychedelic misunderstandings and comic-like aesthetics, crowned with a title straight outta Gunshow.
