Fluorescent Black is a studio album by American hip hop group Anti-Pop Consortium Contents Adam Park of Clash described it as "a futuristic blueprint that will subtly define the coming decade's urban landscape. Meanwhile, Rory Gibb of Drowned in Sound said: "The chemistry between all three MCs is stronger than ever, and the beats on here act as a reminder of how to do leftfield hip-hop in the right wa.

However, the name Anti-Pop Consortium also carries with it a millstone of grim self-satisfaction and gruelling austerity. Is ‘consortium’ really the first word you'd reach for when wanting to improve the quality of fun? Or is fun itself to be frowned upon? Having reformed in 2007, Fluorescent Black is the first album by the New York hip-hoppers since 2003's Anti-Pop Consortium vs Matthew Shipp, after which members Beans, High Priest and M Sayyid split to pursue solo careers.

That's the takeaway phrase that has always stayed with me whenever I think about them and how to describe their music to people who don't know their work. Their reformation resulted in new performances and a new album: Fluorescent Black. Even with the rhythmic advances that have occurred since their hiatus (the bass of dubstep and the new school beat concoctions of producers like Hudson Mohawke), these guys sound hungry and very inspired. Their live set at All Tomorrow's Parties features them firing on all cylinders. You can hear a number of selections from their set after the jump or check the full streaming archive here.

Anti-Pop Consortium formed in 1997 when Beans, High Priest, M. Sayyid and producer Earl Blaize met at a poetry slam in New York City. The four of them put out a series of mixtapes (proper cassettes!) on their own Anti-Pop Records and called them Consortium volumes 1, 2 and 3. The people who were picking up the tapes began to refer to the coalition behind them as the Anti-Pop Consortium and the group as we now know it was born. The Consortium’s emblem – a stylised corporate stick figure with a burning head – was also already in place, created by the graphical smarts of High Priest himself

Anti-Pop Consortium have always been known for their experimental hip hop that consists of futuristic sounds mixed with virtuoso hip hop lyrics, certainly not for your average Joe. The combination was a perfect signing for Warp Records and the most well known album 'Arrhythmia' released in 2002 that earned them a tour with Radiohead. Now the hard hitting crew Beans, High Priest, M Sayyid and producer Earl Blaize are back
