Must-See Music Pick! From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
Keeping in stride with prior releases, Blockhead's newest album, the music scene, is an experimental, sample-based approach to some off-the-wall storytelling. Sure the final product may sound tastefully similar to that of years past, but his process was totally different as he attempted to embrace a multitude of genres — from hip-hop and downtempo to heavy drum and bass. Altogether it's a heady effort that encourages the listener to just sit back and get lost in the peculiar snippets of dialogue and mind-altering melodies. At its core, it's a highly ambitious product even by Ninja Tune standards. For this show he'll be celebrating the album along with openers Quadratic, The Abstract Science DJs and The Opus, a local duo also in the midst of promoting its own shadowy brand of instrumental hip-hop on its newest album, Praying Mantis.
