Hype Williams, or rather Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland, have been a busy pair the past couple of years and only seem to be gaining moment. Not only have they announced the release of their next full length Black is Beautiful, out this April 17th, but each have been busy releasing the odd solo release or two along with well you know the usual kind of stuff like being accused in a court of law of going on a robbing spree of raccoons from taxidermists.
The duo have also recently graced the pages of The Guardian as well for an in-depth article and interview with the artists. As a special treat they also released an exclusive download titled "The Attitude Era" to go along with the article which will be available for 2 weeks after it's original publish date (4/5/12).
Such a move seems to be almost counter active as the tracks contained found on the download album can stand up there with any of the Copeland & Blunt's work. A feature that has occurred over and over again in their career where high profile releases receive no special attention. It handled as what is available at the time naturally evolving and sharing along the way. In a way it enables further growth, yet at the speed they are going at how long will it be able to last.
Dean Blunt & Inga Copeland's Black is Beautiful will be available April 17th via Hyperdub.
