Finest Ego is a series of location specific compilations put together by Project Mooncircle to highlight new and established beatmakers brought together under the broad umbrella of hip-hop. So far the series has looked at Japan, Rusia and Australia/New Zealand (available here). Inspired by artists like Hudson Mohawke, Paul White and Mike Slott, the latest compilation focuses on the UK & Ireland and features Ean (formerly of Various Productions) S-Type, Kelpe, fLako & Benjamin One alongside a host of other artists. It is a mixed bag of squawking skwee-hop, dubbed out lo-fi, garage-spliced vocal warmers, wonky arpeggio wonders and outright tunes. For a free album this is a mighty compilation.
