Dark sh*t from Brazil’s most potent export since Terry Gilliam. ‘4 Ton Mantis’ will eat you alive. Features an aromatic remix by the sought-after Bonobo, who transforms Amon’s midnight blues into a dusky jazz-kissed sonata to sweeten the death blows dealt to you by the hand of Amon. Also features the Roots Manuva cut on ‘Sabateur’. The enigmatic and astute rapper gets raw on Tobin’s shadowy paean, sabotaging paparazzi, slo-flo politicians, and Those Who Dare To Ask For More.
