Underground beat maestro Anthony Simon, better known as Blockhead, first lent his production hands in the mid-'90s to then up-and-coming MC Aesop Rock, who rose to indie rap prominence during the 2000s. Blockhead's contributions to Aesop's LPs were a big factor to the indie MC's success, especially those from Aesop's highly regarded Definitive Jux debut Labor Days (2001). Nevertheless, in the following years the New York producer garnered his own acclaim as an instrumental rap artiste, turning his sampledelic beats into brooding, trip-hop-like concoctions.
Calling Blockhead a hip-hop producer is a bit like calling Radiohead a rock 'n' roll band. Though he's provided beats for Aesop Rock and isn't above the occasional sped-up vocal sample or turntable scratch, Blockhead's ethereal soundscapes go far beyond what most convention hip-hop aspires to.
