Will Werk For Beats


Even after listening to the whole record, you still have no clue what Gonervill is. Upon first thought, maybe it’s a place for losers, a place that really uncool people go to get gone. Who knows? The two men who, in theory, make up Gonervill claim that while it is a place, it’s more of a mental place that an artist goes to while art is being created. These two men, Extrakd and Eddie Def (along with live beat sampling Brian) seem to have spent a lot of time in that place while this record was being made. It would be most appreciated by DJs and/or die-hard fans of extremely experimental hip-hop. Much would be improved by adding lyrics to the wacky tracks, but a few that didn’t leave my head spinning were “On And On,” “Unseen Worlds,” the transfixing “Voodoo,” and the deeply beatific “Nurds.”
