Apparently "dug out of the Stones Throw dungeon," this crackling, absorbing take on helium hip hop is back on the scene just in time for summer, as part of Stones Throw Records’ recent spurt of reissues. A second coming of the 2004 12”, the track sounds just as new today as it did then; if anything, it will provide a nice distraction from thinking about the mind-blowing fact that 2004 was actually eight years ago.

Broad Factor is now available as a 12” from Stones Throw Records – get it here.
