DEEP PUDDLE DYNAMICS IS THE BIRTH OF RAP COLLECTIVE ANTICON. IN WHICH, THIS ALBUM SETS THE STAGE, FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL MEMBER (IN THIS CASE SOLE, ALIAS, SLUG AND DOSEONE) TO CONTINUE TO MAKE THE MOST CHALLENGING HIP-HOP SINCE, WELL... SINCE EVER.
ITS REALLY REFRESHING TO HEAR ARTISTS RAP ABOUT PERSONAL ISSUES AND EMOTIONAL SUBJECTS: THEY DONT ONCE, IN ANYWAY, RESEMBLE THE TYPICAL GUN CULTURED, GANGSTA IMAGE OF MAINSTREAM HIP HOP.

A beautiful combination of contrasts;

This is the best British Hip Hop album i ve heard for a long time. If you like your lyrics to be a little less agressive and serious, then this is the album you have been waiting for. There are plenty of quality samples (DJ Vadim / Jurrasic 5 Style) which are combined with a crystal clear vocal delivery with a cheeky Bristolian Twang. The lyrics are intelligent and at times extremely funny. This is West Country Hip Hop not West Coast Flip Flops.
