About High Priest

Once the genre-challenging, independent rap scene got underway in the late '90s, High Priest's avant-garde hip-hop trio Antipop Consortium further pushed that envelop, blending glitch and IDM into their b-boy postures. High Priest, Beans, and M. Sayyid gained a significant following touring with the likes of Radiohead and DJ Shadow before they ended up going their separate ways in 2002. However, High Priest briefly teamed up with M. Sayyid a few years later to form Airborn Audio, releasing Good Fortunes on the indie label Ninja Tune in early 2005. High Priest did record some solo 12" records for Sound-Ink during the Airborn Audio stint, but his official album debut, Born Identity, did not arrive until February 2007. On the song "Keep Time" from the LP, he collaborated with members of experimental rock group TV on the Radio. ~ Cyril Cordor
