Warp Records are super stoked by the new Darkstar LP:

"Listen to the new Darkstar album in full. Take your time, immerse yourself. For this reason, skipping tracks is disabled. We are proud to share this record with you. Warp x"

I've heard the stream… It slays! If you wanna be like me, or Rough Trade East who just named it 'Album of The Month', you can do so by clicking here.

This will give you the full ten track album, which is a definite progression from their debut, whilst still maintaining what made Darkstar such a promising act to begin with. Add in diverse sampling, analogue tech and an affinity for the golden age of hip hop production, and this is a more accomplished, evolved and frankly more brilliant proposition.
