This post comes from my nephew. He writes:
Blockhead is an instrumental-hip hop/trip hop producer from Manhattan. His songs are made exclusively from samples, of which appropriately reflects the late 80s/90s sample heavy hip hop he was influenced by. He rose to relative notoriety producing music for rapper Aesop Rock, and subsequently began a solo career. His songs can range anywhere from poignant and nostalgic to rousing and enchanting.
