Blockhead: Show Preview

New Yorker Tony Simon calls himself Blockhead because he thinks his dome has that shape. He's an accomplished producer for rappers such as Aesop Rock and MURS, but has leaned toward instrumental music on his five solo albums. The occasional vocal lines or textures largely come from obscure samples, a creative cut-and-paste style that owes a debt to UK act Coldcut, whose Matt Black and Jonathan More signed Blockhead to their now-legendary Ninja Tune label. Blockhead leads a showcase of performances from up-and-coming Ninja Tune artists.
