Atlanta rap meets Norwegian ambient.

Here’s some news we didn’t see coming – Norwegian ambient veteran Biosphere releasing a vinyl reissue of an album from Awful Records rapper-producer Slug Christ on his Biophon label.

The Crucifixion of Rapper Extraordinaire, Slug Christ was released on Awful in May, and was described by the label as “an ode to a forgotten self-sacrifice.” While it was full of the Awful-styled rap you’d expect, it also featured some ominous ambient tracks, which is what we’re guessing Biosphere was drawn to.

It’s still a strange choice for Biophon, which has a discography primarily made up of Biosphere’s vast catalogue together with records from fellow ambient artists. If you want to get your hands on it, the reissue is released on February 19.
