3:33 "333EP1"

Made up of an unknown number of members, the mysterious hip-hop production group 3:33 is well-versed in murk. Signed to underground label Parallel Thought, the group will release a full-length on April 5. Unsatisfied with the superfluous addition of track titles, this instrumental number bears a hip-hop resemblance if only for the drum beat, though its distortion-filled take on the genre recalls vintage DJ Shadow and the salad days of Mo' Wax Records. Between snarls from a surrounding swamp of feedback and other dying sound loops, a crippled piano line emerges sounding like it barely made it out of Mobb Deep's The Infamous.
