Artist of the Day: Malcom Kipe

Malcom Kipe (a.k.a. Skyler McGlothlin a.k.a. Nautilis) produces experimental breaks and instrumental hip hop, mainly for the soon-to-be-defunct American label Merck Records. McGlothlin has cut two proper 'albums' and a compendium of beats with Merck Recordings.

Austin, Texas based instrumental hiphop producer Malcolm Kipe is perhaps better known for his productions as Nautilis on Mike Paradinas’ Planet Mu label, and this second album from him under his own name emerges through Merck mere months after his debut offering ‘Beatspiracy Theories.’ In many senses, ‘Lit’ represents a direct continuation on from where ‘Breakspiracy Theories’ left off, and follows a very similar sonic trajectory, blending strong early nineties hiphop influences with an experimental electronic approach similar to the likes of Prefuse 73, DJ Shadow and DJ Vadim (Evilchris2, 2007).
