Texas beat-wrangler Skyler McGlothlin steps outside his experimental mode as Nautilis (Planet Mu) to re-up for another full-length instrumental hip-hop outing on Florida‘s Merck imprint. Eclectic, crate-dug rhythms and samples get the dirty MPC work-over as the impeccably selected raw material-ranging from sensual and obscure jazz snippets to Gregorian chants to spacey mid-‘70s god-knows-what-gets nailed down with some good old Jetta-pumpin‘ beats. MC-ready, Lit rolls with a superb, repetitive flow while sustaining a cerebral quality that makes for a rich living room experience as well. Add a beanbag chair and a Dutch, and you got yourself a Sunday afternoon.
