RESPECT!! LOL the EX

Darkseed is a Japanese hip hop crew (not the be confused with the other Darkseed) I accidentally stumbled upon while surfing the interweb. Aside from their unique songs (I'm partial to LOLIFUSE 13's IDM-esque "fly me to the morning" remix, though not so much their trance-flavored "WE ALL LOVE DARKSEED" sexual frontier remix), I found it fascinating that this collective whose ranks include the likes of MC/DJ/Producers bombtrack, LOL the EX, fujimotor, and HOUNDDOGGYDOGG have their own comics, haikus, and even spinoff projects!

THey look interesting, but the mp3 downloads are stalled.

I made a point of doing nothing other than listening to the audio files.

Compared to American rap, they suffer from a lack of hard consonants.

Since I don't understand a word, all I can do is listen for texture.

Also you don't really have an equivalent to "rhyming" in Japanese.

This stuff is a far cry from Halcali.
