Watch The Ants follows Paul White's cult hits The Strange Dreams of Paul White and Paul White and the Purple Brain, released on One-Handed Music and Now-Again Records. He has received support from Diplo, Mary Anne Hobbs, Benji B and Gilles Peterson. Watch The Ants is sure to further solidify his reputation as one of the most innovative producers in hip-hop and beyond. The South Londoner is joined by the motley crew of Trim, Sean Price, Homeboy Sandman and rap superstar-in-waiting Danny Brown, who recruited Paul to produce nearly half his forthcoming album Old and cited him as "my fav producer to work with".
Though it boasts an enviable roster of MCs, Watch The Ants also contains plenty for fans of White's instrumental work. Minus, Divining Rod and Seagull Conscience are hard to categorise, existing in intriguing sound worlds of their own. They demonstrate perfectly why his talents are in demand from musicians beyond hip-hop circles - as illustrated by So Far Away, his track with Charli XCX, which Pitchfork called "a clear highlight" of her Best New Music-earning album True Romance.
