The members of left-field indie rap group Anti-Pop Consortium, following their highly influential Arrhythmia, disbanded and began putting out solo records in 2002. Beans had a string of successful records, and High Priest and M. Sayyid released an album together as Airborn Audio. Following this seven-year hiatus, the Consortium is back with the first of two records planned for release on the Big Dada label. In a statement, the group said, “We needed time to grow and mature as artists individually. Now that we have assessed our strengths and weaknesses, we are ready to re-form stronger and better than we have ever been before." Fluorescent Black is the highly anticipated return of these IDM-inflected rap icons.
