Hailing from Sacramento, California, Death Grips was formed in late 2010 and consists of vocalist Stefan Burnett and production team Zach Hill & Andy Morin. Their track “Guillotine” became Time Out NY’s No.1 single of 2011. As a follow up to their critically acclaimed debut Ex Military, Death Grips release two albums on 2012 on Epic Records. The Money Store will includes the new song “Blackjack”. The live setup consists of Burnett on vocals, Morin on keyboards and Hill on drums.
Even given the stellar company – Odd Future, The Weeknd, A$AP Rocky et al – Death Grips stood out in hip hop circles in 2011. Actually, the trio (vocalist/rapper Stefan Burnett aka MC Ride and the production team of Andy Morin, under the alias Flatlander, and Zach Hill, the drummer for Hella) didn’t so much stand out as pummel and bludgeon with their debut album/mixtape Exmilitary, featuring the astonishing single Guillotine, accompanied by a video that fully expressed the group’s jittery hyperanxiety and sense of a micro-paramilitary unit holed up in their native Sacramento, not so much waiting for the bomb to drop as assuming that it already has.
Talking of bombs... On this, the first of two albums due for release this year, Death Grips achieve the density and intensity of several Bomb Squads, Public Enemy’s famous production wing. The Money Store may be their first recording since signing to Sony, but it hardly betrays signs of softening before their new paymasters. If anything, what you lose in sonic impact you gain in range: Hill and Morin seem to invent new rhythms and textures on each track.
Opener Get Got is madly inventive, crammed with ideas, art rap masquerading as aural thuggery. Like most everything here, it will stun even those familiar with the more far-out output of the Def Jux label, a crush collision of extreme electronica, industrial and metal: imagine Throbbing Gristle in a grinder with Tricky, Slayer and El-P. Dubstep, ghetto tech, juke, punk and, oddly, synth-pop are also part of Death Grips’ aural maelstrom: I’ve Seen Footage is like some long-lost Gary Numan hit from a distant planet where Are ‘Friends’ Electric? became the pop blueprint over Love Me Do, while The Cage evokes the dystopian futurescapes conjured by the early Human League.
Sometimes they synthesise new hybrids. What is that sound on Lost Boys? Avant-dancehall? Industrial slo-core? As for the words, it's tricky making them out, but given the context it is hard not to conclude that there is an overall dissatisfaction with the status quo, a sort of disgust fetishism and biblical bile as MC Ride declaims as though from a pulpit from within a church in flames: Death Grips invite such fanciful, apocalyptic extrapolations. F*** That encapsulates DG’s worldview, and their language of dissent and alienation. With their siege mentality, they are arguably a new paradigm, obviously oblivious to the usual trappings of rap, a grievous counter to the culture of consumerism and acquisition.
The track System Blower is well titled: it, like so much around it, threatens to blow your speakers with every maximalist second. Bring the noise? It’s already here.

Its addictive, its unique, its also sometimes to much to handle. You have to be in the mood for this record because it absolutely does not take any prisoners, your neighbours will hate it.
How to descibe 'The Money Store' musicaly? Rapping/shouting/chanting over dense beats/noises/alarms/explosions, a digital, hellish black mass led by a lunatic shaman who moonlights as a serial killer. I feel im not doing this justice here...
If your reading reviews about this record then you must have more than a passing interest in the subject. What does it cost? a tenner? Buy it and experience it.
I had no idea I'd be into something like this. Maybe because it's more crazy industrial-dance-noise punk with rapping than traditional hip hop, and I like grime too. It's more focused on the psychology of this crazy person than the typical subject matter of hip hop.
"I Seen Footage" is a very relevant look into this modern age of Internet shock videos and seeing all that real disturbing footage makes you lose your mind.
Some lyrics are hilarious like "I'll make your water break in the Apple store" (Hacker). I haven't spent this much time deciphering lyrics since an Interpol album.
You either enter it expecting it to be amazing, as I did, only to find that it's an incredibly difficult album to access;
or you enter it expecting it to be awful, as many do, BECAUSE it's so difficult to access.
This is completely different to anything you've heard before. Get Got will throw you off from the outset, The Fever will have you in a daze, I've Seen Footage will have you bopping your head whilst The Cage will make you question reality.
Loosen yourself into it, though, and this really is an absolute masterpiece from start to finish.
It's also completely worth it for that one hook in closer Hacker:
"TABLE'S FLIPPED NOW WE GOT ALL THE COCONUTS BITCH"
Gets me every time.
(You won't understand until you listen to it)
Each track has a pop sensibility, insofar as they are not overly long and feature direct hooks that will stay with you for a long time.
I agree with Mr Ride; indeed, Gaga could not handle this s***.
Like being caught in a mosh at thrash metal gig, where the guitarists are playing samplers and keyboards and the singer recites stream of consciousness, pummeled aurally, and physically by distorted beats and samples you have no choice but to join in....!
30 years of MTV , and News blended together, beat matched and jacked into your skull through an overloaded cable...
William Gibson's Neuromancer made real...
You'll catch a jpeg to the head
You're an intern
Most loved therefore most hated
Come and knock on the door we've been waiting for you
Yingin and yanging noided
Info warrior jack the hacker
The rolling stoner
Profit on disaster
At once opaque, and lucid in the same sentence, streaming recent events and calling up pop cultural/sci-fi references ... great stuff, challenging for sure, but it'll get your adrenalin pumping just listening....

Everything they tried to do here, they succeeded. Great beats, lyrics, samples, drumming, rapping.
And I'm not even an hip hop fan. This is so unique, everybody can like it.
