EDITORS’ NOTES

On Bottomless Pit, Death Grips present a strikingly concise iteration of their hip-hop radicalism. The music is still utterly bonkers, but it’s a bonkers that is tightly scripted. Opener “Giving Bad People Good Ideas” cuts straight to the chase, achieving nuclear meltdown via a marriage of neo-gabber hyper-stutter, sci-fi lysergia, and MC Ride’s sweat-soaked hardcore bark; “Bubbles Buried in This Jungle” downshifts effortlessly into fractured thumping beneath wheezing synths and abstract word-splatter. The closing title track comes full circle, unleashing turbo-charged, weird-punk fury that would make Boredoms as pleased as punch.

mr. grips and the boys do it again

Hashs Slinging Bull Worm

another great album from dg with a lot of hardcore influence and even one of my favorite album openers from them. wish I didn't listen to the leak first :/

One of their best albums yet.

Bottomless Pit is, in my opinion, one of their strongest projects thus far, if not their strongest. Catchy, glitchy, and abrasive... Everything you could ever hope for in a Death Grips record, and it’s still refreshing.

About Death Grips

Death Grips is a difficult yet enthralling project, where the glitched-out productions of blastbeat drummer Zach Hill and keyboardist Andy Morin accent the violently yelled raps of vocalist Stefan Burnett. The experimental hip-hop project started out in Sacramento, California and put out its first mixtape, Exmilitary, in 2011. Despite the album's raging intensity, it became a favorite among critics upon its release. Following a signing to Epic, Death Grips released The Money Store in 2012. The label planned on delivering the follow-up album, No Love Deep Web, that same year, but when Death Grips released it themselves as a free download, the group was let go from Epic. An official release of No Love Deep Web appeared in 2013 on the group's own imprint, Third Worlds, just as the band released their third album, Government Plates, as a free download. In 2014, the group announced they were breaking up, with The Powers That B their final album. The double-LP was officially released in 2015, but the first half leaked in 2014 as Niggas on the Moon, an album constructed from vocal samples of singer/songwriter Björk. The second half, titled Jenny Death, was a more traditional Death Grips effort. The ensemble then embarked on a world tour in the summer of 2015, and announced their fifth LP, Bottomless Pit, later that year. The album arrived in early 2016 to widespread acclaim. ~ Jason Lymangrover
