I don’t know much about Shabazz Palaces. I know that one of the members, Placeer Lazaro, is otherwise known as Ishmael Butler from the hip hop group Digable Planets. I also know that Sub Pop will release their new Album Black Up on June 28.
The song “An Echo From The Hosts That Profess Infinitum” is very cool and original sounding, using spaced-out samples mixed with a slow deep beat, definitely not your average hip hop track. Check it out.
