Aesop Rock Launches Arts-Driven Website, 900Bats.com
The former Def Jukie launches a creative resource for the arts with some old friends, getting contributions from onetime label-mate Rob Sonic.
Emcee/producer Aesop Rock remains active in music, producing last year’s Felt 3: A Tribute To Rosie Perez for Slug and Murs. However, it was announced this morning that the Northport, New York native and former flagship Definitive Jux Records artist has devoted recent energies to 900Bats.com. The website is defined not as Aesop’s artist site, but as a creative resource for the arts.
In a statement, Aesop Rock said the following: “In an effort to supply a sandbox for what I hope proves to be a multifarious and growing mix of contributors, I, with the help of Alex Tarrant and Justin Metros, have created 900Bats.com. Original writing, photography, artwork, audio, and video content from varying sources will be posted regularly.”
Among early contributors is fellow former Def Jukie Rob Sonic.
