Contest: Packages of Blindspot’s ‘Apart’ and ‘Hugs & Scissors’ (+ Exclusive MP3)

After Hugs & Scissors and the free EP A Fine Mess, this week German duo Blindspot is back with the release of the 16-track album Apart. Inspired by the likes of Qwel, Sole, Sage Francis, Slug (of Atmosphere), Aesop Rock and Illogic, Blindspot brings fresh hip hop with a subtle dark touch. We give away three packages of ‘Apart’ and ‘Hugs & Scissors’ CDs.

Music: Blindspot – Friendly Fire

Producer Dot is on a constant search for the essence of a sound that’s tearing down the boundaries of the average. Wherever his sound takes you next, there’s always the inevitable feeling of beauty around. Partner-in-crime Mr. Feat always had a strong connection to one of the deepest and most constant of all forces on earth: rhythm. This is definitely mirrored in the fast-talking, critical and personal rhymestyle he’s spitting today.

Here you can pre-order ‘Apart’ and listen to a snippet mix. If you want a free physical package of ‘Apart’ and ‘Hugs & Scissors’ on CD, all you have to do is answer this easy question:

What colour is the chord that’s plugged into the patchbay on Blindspot’s new album teaser for ‘Apart’?
