M. Sayyid Outside the Box
- Words: Alexis Georgopoulos
- Label: Sound Ink
The first solo release from Anti-Pop Consortium's most overlooked member ain't a drastic departure. Stunted electronic minimalism and cerebral wordplay rules here. Heat Sensor drops by for some tasty old-school production, and Sayyid returns the favor on their "Touch" EP, which is wound up tight as an elastic brain about to detonate. In a similar galaxy, Daly Operations (on Future Primitive) steps up with a searing take on electro dancehall in "Fitna Get Paid."
