Backed by live band ft Tommy Benedetti, Van Martin, and Chris Beam of Dub Apocalypse and DJ Mister Rourke

The first full-length from Mr. Lif & Akrobatik (The Perceptionists) in a dozen years reflects the struggles and near-death sagas that struck them. During that span, Lif miraculously survived his tour bus plummeting over a 38 foot cliff. Akrobatik weathered a sudden aortic rupture and emergency open-heart surgery. The impact of those experiences forced the former Def Jux duo to contemplate fate, luck, and their own place within a world spinning out of control.

With the Perceptionists, the personal is political and vice-versa. Akrobatik rhymes about his desire to breathe in the sun before my skin dries out but still refuses to be the coward in a pretend hide out. On Lemme Find Out, they kick ingeniously sinister dystopian horror raps about our grotesque addiction to technology. There are love songs over beats that sound like they couldve been on Madvillainy, stories of cypher demolitions of would-be challengers, and dirty ass rhymes over dirty ass drumsas The Perceptionists sagely insist, thats all the world really wants.

Its music from deep in the trenches, songs that confront the blitzkrieg of bad news but offer light at the end of the bombardment. If you listen closely, you can intuit a profound story of friendship and camaraderie between Lif and Akrobatiklifelong friends trading bars with the chemistry of Tip and Phife, Andre and Big Boi, Erick and Parrish. Theyre mortal men who made mistakes, gained experience, and obtained wisdom. This is Resolution.
