Repent Replenish Repeat
Four years on from their massive 'Thou Shalt Always Killâ€™, with a gap for respective solo outings and radio show fronting, Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip return with their third album, â€˜Repent Replenish Repeatâ€™, on Sunday Best.
Beat heavy, sparse yet effective, â€˜Repent Replenish Repeatâ€™ is their most complete work yet. Ploughing a sharply defined furrow of glitched, sharp hip hop, with Pip producing his most lucid vocals whilst dan reaches for a tight production pallet of hard beats, dark strings and layered melodic reverb.
Lead off track â€˜Stunnerâ€™ set the tone perfectly, premiered on Pipâ€™s own weekly XFM radio show - the video has already clocked up over 170K plays and their Autumn tour is a sell out. Lead single Gold Teeth features production props from Flux Pavilion - an attack on consumerism with a huge beat and hook to match.
Elsewhere, thereâ€™s the atmospheric â€˜Terminalâ€™ and â€˜Porterâ€™ tackling terminal illness and mental health, the club bouncing â€˜Nightbus Sleepersâ€™, grinding â€˜Heroismâ€™ and Pipâ€™s â€œlast political songâ€ â€˜Stiff Upper Lipâ€™, featuring Itch, formerly of King Blues.
The success of their solo albums and their continued live profile suggest â€˜Repent Replenish Repeatâ€™ is set to repeat the trick.
