East Man is a new project from Anthoney Hart and its material predates his previous
work as Basic Rhythm. His unique take on grime reduces the sound to its steely fundamentals, bringing in influences from dancehall, drum and bass and techno to gird the
voices of the MCs he works with. His own name for this hardcore continuum mongrel is
'Hi Tek'.Anthoney struck a friendship with the academic and theorist Paul Gilroy, who
wrote the album introduction.
