As Gangrene, the Alchemist and Oh No are the 2010 equivalent of J Dilla and Madlib's partnership as Jaylib: the grimiest major-label beatmaker around waging cross-country MPC war with a prolific underground sample sculptor. But Gutter Water has none of Jaylib's muted minimalism, opting for a barrage of manic rhymes and delirious, clattering noise -- haunted-house pianos, car crashes, backmasked ickiness, end-times news broadcasts, Godzilla whines, convulsive turntablism, and even the YouTube clip of a cop eating pot brownies. It knocks despite sounding like nine scratchy records playing at once. Or because of it.
