Illa Noise You Will Not Find

A few years ago, the City of Chicago put together a pretty cool mp3 project for Millennium Park. Anyone could download the thing and essentially have his/her own narrated walking tour of the park. The Windy City's own Radius (aka Ramon Norwood) arguably has done one better with his latest, Neighborhood Suicide. Radius has put together an instrumental album highlighting the city by the lake's neighborhoods. Think a hip-hop version of Sufjan Stevens' Illinoise.

Radius' music is in the vein of other such luminaries as J Dilla and Madlib, creating all his tunes with an MPC digital sampler. All of the tracks center on various Chi-town neighborhoods and do a good job of actually imparting the feel of the areas.

mp3: Logan Square (Rent's Due)
