    Just listening to some tunes like 66 and offshore and noticing that

    It's more moving to me somehow cos they're not singing about acid or love or anything, it's all materialistic and violent lyrics but rendered all dreamy and euphoric and woozy. Maybe it's more MDMA rap than acid rap?

    discovered this via thirdform or version (can't remember) on the new music thread and it's the 'swing my door' of rebore jungle
