Sole's his first major release not on Anticon Records is on his new imprint, Black Canyon Recordings. His new strategy shifts away from the pay-to-play politics of the past, inflated publicity budgets, and chart infiltration, and marks a return to his DIY guerilla roots. It re-ignites the culture war--a clarion call announcing the only role of art is to challenge the status quo.  What better way to celebrate such an occasion than a remix album with old and new friends? Featuring up-and-coming artists and indy stalwarts alike, the record has remixes by Dosh, Andrew Broder of Fog, Electric President, Astronautalis, Son Lux, Sleeper, Telephone Jim Jesus, Odd Nosdam, Thavius Beck, Subtitle, Bit Tuner, DJ Egadz, Otem Rellik, and Pictureplane.   This album departs from 2006's post-rock-influenced self-titled LP and revisits an IDM/electronic style. Song structures are destroyed, but the theme remains, whether it's Pictureplane calling for a return to '68, Dosh's re-emphasis of "to know thy enemy is to know thyself," or Son Lux recalling "everyone you know is on a tiny blue dot." In this rapidly changing world, these aren't empty songs of protest, love, or gluttony; they are calls to arms. Sole and the Skyrider Band go where no one else in hip-hop or indie rock dares. Strange days are upon us, yet there is no need to fear--the burning plastic smell can't last forever...
