Beans, the eclectic experimentalist and former Anti Pop Consortium member, is gearing up to release his long-awaited album ZWAARD on March 15th via Tygr Rawwk Rcrds. Teaming up with Finnish producer Sasu Ripatti, also known as Vladislav Delay and Luomo, the duo promises a captivating sonic experience that defies conventions. ZWAARD, named after the Dutch term for a heavy bladed weapon, marks Beans’ return after six years of silence since his last album. Ripatti, renowned for his minimalist dub electronics, perfectly complements Beans’ abstract rap style.

The album’s first single, ZWAARD 1, showcases their synergy with rapid-fire futurism and intricate production, setting the stage for an electrifying musical journey.
