If you start a revolution and nobody’s there to film it, did it really go down? With respect to the late Gil-Scott Heron, Alterbeats aren’t about to underestimate the role of visual media in staging their musical coup d’etat. The lead single off their forthcoming debut set, TV Screen finds underground spitters Chief Kamachi, Kromeatose and Block McCloud commenting on our visually-oriented society over the Gallic production/graphic design/cinema collective ‘s head-noddable sample work. The French Revolution is due out June 26. In the meantime, those who like what they’re hearing can download this record for free via Audiomack.
