Here's something nice from the 21st century that I love without reservation, EDAN's Beauty & the Beat album. This record, released in 2005, is a perfect synthesis of slow flow 80s' hip-hop and psychedelia, not an easy trick. Nothing else in the universe sounds remotely like it. Since 2005's Beauty & the Beat he's done a couple of mix tapes, a dvd and guest appearances but no new record.
If you don't have this album, buy it asap, it's a modern day psychedelic masterpiece, hopefully someday soon he'll make another.
Here's the trailer for the Echo Party Mix DVD
