Aviation of Pontius Pilate (MP076)

Marrow’s career began in Kingston ON in the early 2000s. Freestyling and battling constantly to sharpen his skills. And at the same time beginning to experiment with beat making. Having played Guitar and Piano prior to his entrance into the world of Hip Hop. An interest in Grunge and Industrial shaping his future sound.

Routiger Slob is dead. Marrow re-emerges for the 3rd instrumental album, and the first official Marrow project in 13 years. Assisted by Shortock (1200HOBOS) on the Cuts, and Mastered by Ilya Id (New Cocoon), Aviation of Pontius Pilate moves at the speed of self-destruction, the transport of chemical transcendence, and the hectic instrumentation of rapidly advancing technology. Both virtuoso and schizoid, Marrow glides between diverse modes and genres; from the intrepid Grime/Trap of Cumulus Loud, to the sinister Boom-Bap of Pandemonium, and to the flechette-like Trip Hop of M41A Pulse Rifle, A.O.P.P never allows itself to be trapped by any single paradigm. Anything that would constrain or control is jettisoned as it sweeps quickly through styles any one of which someone slower might spend an entire album attempting to lock in. This fecundity is made possible by a noncommittal attitude towards subject matter, just as the absurdist half-puns of many of the songs’ titles serve to annihilate the containment of sound through its labelling. They upset the depressive mood with humour and throw-away wit that speaks to the higher creative optimism hinted at through tossed-off samples becoming glimmering flights of fancy, coal turned diamond in an instant. But as quick as the santuary is glimpsed, the listener finds themselves plummeting once more head-first into subterranean psychomachia, Aviation of Pontius Pilate offers the blind sound of exulting propulsion, life running with the storm.
