"Baltimore City Paper"

Thanks to the all-beats, no-filler approach espoused by labels such as Definitive Jux and Anticon, underground hip-hop is as low-fi as old Crypt Records albums. It creates a kind of auditory claustrophobia, sounding like it was made in a small room with one microphone stuck in the bottom of a megaphone. And it, at first, was a fine and even dandy 180-turn from blingtatstic hip-hop pop, but the esthetic hasn't been able to grow as MCs have become more confident, talented, and inventive.
Fortunately, producer/DJ t.E.C..K! has his ideas about how underground hip-hop can sound. The beat-master behind Educated Consumers, t.E.C.K! proves himself an even more versatile rhythm juggler on ReziNation's Forbidden Fruit Creates Many Jams. This duo--with MC K-Cromozone, an agile rhyme-sayer with a nice feel for playing with and off beats--travels in the sort of deep-down groove and astro-soul glides that Madlib kicks out for Quasimoto and Lootpack, finely layering touches of high-end samples and accents that make the low-end throb contagious. It's a style that allows ResiNation--yes, it's most definitely a play on "resin"--to kick out stumbling, streetwalking blues grooves ("2-22z"), discombobulating disses of movie folk play-acting musicians ("Actors"), prowling pulses spiced with a flamenco flava ("MADD"), and the ingenious beat-box meeting a cappella backing voices ("MAXImum"). And like Quasimoto, ResiNation can bounce from serious subjects to unabashed silliness without batting an eye, making an album that feels as casual and of its time as early Pharcyde.

This group makes good hip-hop because they KNOW good hip-hop. Students of the game brought to the forefront by a string of random events that, when strung together, form a collage of montages with facades on all sides of the infinite box stashed away in the garage. (aka The group was formed in 2000.)
