On Dialogue, his third full-length for Mush Records, Thavius Beck continues to push the boundaries of hip-hop beat making, grounding lo-fi digital drum kits in icy layers of synthesizers and sliced up samples. Fresh off of production duties on Saul Williams Niggy Tardust album with Trent Reznor, Becks work on Dialogue is razor sharp. This release also finds Thavius spending more time in front of the microphone, delivering the type of rhymes that originally gained him notoriety as a member of Global Phlowtations. The consummate iconoclast, Beck cleverly critiques many of America's ills with a dry, satirical wit that never falls into preachiness. With each passing release, Thavius Beck continues to prove that the only musical boundaries he sees are ones he has already left behind.
