Description

Responsible for all but revolutionizing the entire face of underground hip-hop in the early portion of this decade with a slew of potent and influential releases such as 2000s Float LP and 2001s monumental Labor Days LP to his most recent EP, 2004s Fast Cars, Danger, Fire and Knives, Aesop Rock (aka Ian Bavitz) has proven that resting on his past laurels is all but forbidden. Following his Fast Cars EP, Aesop defied convention and collaborated with visual artist Jeremy Fish on The Next Best Thing, a short story posing as childrens book documenting the cathartic process taken to overcome a creative block. He also scored original music for two short films, Fishtales directed by Jeremy Fish, and Walleyball, released by McSweeneys Wholphin series. Early 2007 saw the release of Aesops unique and invigorating All Day, a 45-minute continuous mix commissioned by Nike+ for their Original Run series created specifically to enhance a runners workout with varying changes in tempo and instrumentation. Constantly finding new ways of innovation goes hand in hand with the dense verbosity and ethereal stutter-funk that codifies Aesop Rocks output, and None Shall Pass is no exception.
