Belgium-raised super emcee Baloji is one of those rare talents whose output we'll fully appreciate once our focus shifts to embracing the uplifting tales of those who stood up for what's right. Not only that, he's got the bars to match and a stage presence with a high sizzle factor. Baloji paints pictures with words, then creates worlds that will hold you close and guard humanity when Armageddon befalls us. He continues his complex Congotronic sound exploits here, pitching his tent in pitch-dark conditions ("Bipolaire—Les Noirs") while also functioning as the source of sunshine ("Soleil de Volt"). Dance along—humanity depends on it.
