Cyrus Malachi - Animal Circus (video)

Cyrus Malachi has been pretty prolific in releasing videos to support Ancient Future, which dropped a couple of weeks ago. This vid for Animal Circus is already the third that he has brought us. In this track he breaks down the history of hip-hop as he sees it, and details some of his early influences from the UK. Fascinating stuff, laid down over some moody keys and thumping drums courtesy of Jon Phonics. This is the type of stuff I think Phonics is best at, and whilst you'd never want an artist to pidgeonhole themselves, I occasionally get the feeling that Jon Phonics tries a little too hard to seem like an eclectic 21st century producer rather than sticking to what is clearly a strength.
