Live Review: Technicolor Lenses at The Big Up 2011

Technicolor Lenses was an unexpected breath of fresh air at The Big Up. Their emcee straddles manifestations of Atmosphere and Mr. Lif and their dubbed out, electro-pop beats make the live experience decidedly delicate and unearthly. They played to a dripping crowd, elegantly leafing through the stratum of their sound, interjecting socially conscious and thought provoking lyrics. Techincolor Lenses flows poetic, in a subtle and lovely delivery of relevance. They had such a distinct energy, an edge born from the elegiac, psychedelic way in which they attack hip-hop and jamtronica.

After the festival I went online and copped their June release, New Eyes. Download the album for yourself, and you’ll see what I mean when I say that while festivals need more hip-hop, hip-hop needs more Technicolor Lenses.
