progressive hip-hop
If you like hip-hop that is instrumentally intersting, creative, and NOT women-hating/awful etc. you should check this out.

If you like Deltron 3030 you'll like the Beyonders too.

"We came here to save the universe/ prepare for the change where intelligence comes first"...


In times of great struggle and strife, people look to different avenues of psychological release. And in case you haven't noticed, we're in a little bit of a historical fulcrum right here and now in global politics, in environmental health, and in the state of Hip Hop. When there's a war going on outside no man is safe from, some go under from the pressure, some dive head first into the muck, and some attempt to transcend through imaginative escapism, and in doing so, find a better way. The Beyonders new project falls heavily into the latter category of coping, but they're far from escapists. As the above quote advertises, they aren't merely here to imagine a better world, they're here to bring it about. In the best tradition of Dr. Octagon and the Zulu nation, this two-man crew comes back from the future to bless us with a message from a distant time and space. The bad news is that the threats against what we hold dear, chiefly quality Hip Hop, are as strong as ever. The good news is that we have soldiers like Phoenix Orion and The Paranorml to fight the good fight...- HIT THE LINK TO READ THE COMPLETE REVIEW

Meshing electronica, greasy funk and a dash of psychadelia with a heavy and ecle
The Beyonders do have something here. Meshing electronica, greasy funk and a dash of psychadelia with a heavy and eclectic approach to hip-hop, they manage to create a progressive- not futuristic, but progressive- outing. The album, The Beyonders: Time Capsule, is strong and shows a serious and comfortable knowledge of the inner-workings of the hip-hop mind.

The message? Take it out and chop it up. The formula is too old, and we’re not having it anymore. Bad hip-hop is not saving itself from indulgent, self-satisfying mediocrity so The Beyonders thought they’d give it a try. They didn’t change the world like they so boldly prophesized. But they did change a monotonous afternoon into something interesting and provocative. This is not the canon, nor will it be any time soon. But, I promise you it is worth your time and at least one spin. Give in and explore the universe of The Beyonders: Time Capsule, a hip, hip-hop concept album that will take you places.

Space age/futuristic hip hop can be a tough niche to thrive in. Not only must the production brandish a severely post-modern intelligence, it can also be a struggle to maintain street cred when you're waving from your spaceship(ask Outkast or Kool Keith). However, when the beats fall into place and mic-grasping cats get wrapped up into bizarre thematics, it can be some of the most mind blowing hip hop out there. Point proven on this disc, where these gents dig deep into the crates and into the annals of space, ho-humming at the state of modern hip hop because they've seen(and created) the future. Blending elements of boom-bap and jazzy breaks, the beats fit well with the abstract subject matter. Sure it's far fetched, but they claim they're here to save the universe. I say strap on the headphones, sit back, and let these boys complete their mission.

These MCs from the future may have the key to open up your eardrums
Surprised by this superb effort from The Beyonders, which stretches from creepy, 2001-style, evil computer intelligence to peaceful, zero-gravity jams with ease, I’m forced to admit that these MCs from the future may have the key to open up your eardrums.

Jonah Flicker - LAS Magazine

Beyonders spit swift and deft
"The LA underground has long been perched on the most forward edge of the future of hip-hop. Sometimes it can be hard to handle, especially for ears accustomed to the usual boom-bap, but there are those who manage to blend the innovative and erratic with beats and rhymes that are still satisfying. The Beyonders’ new album, Time Capsule (Nonfikshen), follows this precise formula. Phoenix Orion and The ParanormL, two staples of the LA underground, have united for this record, employing producer Toby Tones’ grimy, post-apocalyptic beats to create their dark hip-hop milieu. From the opening assault of "The Beyonders" to the more laid-back ‘90s-style "Symphony" (featuring Avatar), the Beyonders spit swift and deft."
