New DARK TIME SUNSHINE album "Anx" - shipping now!  Reply with quote

Both members of Dark Time Sunshine - Northwest oldominion rapper Onry Ozzborn and Chicago producer Zavala - have long suffered from anxiety, carrying the constant weight of fear of these symptoms coming on at a moments notice. Their latest album, ANX, fully encapsulates theirĀ respective disorders - and at the same time became an outlet through which they both overcame them. The creation of music is the essential part of their lives - an escape, a place of serenity - also an outlet to vent their emotions. The most extremes of emotions: panic/patience, happiness/depression, strength/weakness, love/hate & trust/betrayal.



The mood of the album reflects these extremes and is bi-polar at times, from calm to manic. The production set by Zavala is a backdrop that identifies with overcoming anxiety and panic attacks, based mainly in analog synthesizers and heavy drum breaks. Drawing inspiration from not only the classic hip hop and psychadelia they are known for, but jazz and electronic as well, which gives the album it's tension and release, an added flicker of unpredictability. Mature and confident, ANX is a valiant album about taking control of one's life and overcoming the fears that restrain us all.

Featuring special guest appearances by Aesop Rock, P.O.S., Busdriver and more!

Why is no one else excited about this? Zavala's production is one of the best things to happen to contemporary hip hop. I can get down with some Onry shit too. And what's this about Rochester AP? If memory serves, he passed away just before Oldominion's One came out, and they dedicated the record to him, or something like that. His one track on that album was awesome. Anyway, this is great news and you fools should put on your dancing shoes.

really looking forward to this album. i can't wait to see them with aesop rock. my only gripe with the tracklist so far is that it looks like there are way too many guest vocals for one album, but i haven't heard it yet so i may be eating my words once this comes out.

I thought the same thing about Vessel, but it all seems to work so well that I don't mind. Normally I think that guest spots should be used sparingly, but it's a phenomenal record in part because of the outside input. I expect nothing less of Anx.
