Ninja Tune and Def Jux producer extraordinaire, Blockhead has been one of my greatest inspirations of the past 5 years. Not only did he almost solely produce my favorite slept on
album of all time, Aesop Rock's "Labor Days", but his album "downtown science"
should be considered one of the best hip hop instrumental albums of the post millenium.
Www.phatfriend.com, plays host to the inner mind of Blockhead, his friendships with various other hip hop emcees and producers and free music!

Click here to download all of Blockhead's beats that never got used "throw away files",
Nearly 15 volumes of music that for some reason didn't make it to the album.
Finally, please go support Blockhead by picking up his new album,
"interludes after midnight".
