matt von d In response to some lyrics from “wire cutters,” I can’t speak for all anarcho-primitivists, but I don’t believe all primitive anarchists want everyone to starve. Our current capitalist system is untenable, and because of capitalist commodification of earth, everyone will eventually starve when the earth is totally plundered. The sooner rewinding and reclamation of our pre-civ lives happens, the fewer who will starve. Just my 2 cents....

10,000 years of the failed experiment called civilization. 80 years till cities start disappearing into the ocean. 15 years till the Oglala aquifer is depleted and America’s breadbasket is a desert. 1421 people killed by cops in 2017. 1 year of Donald Trump.

Rising Fascism. Rising wealth inequity. Generations lost to memes and smartphones. Political discourse that reifies inequality & alienation. Brave resistance from Standing Rock to Trumps Inauguration. Heavy repression from Standing Rock to Trumps Inauguration.

Rapid gentrification displacing working people. All out attacks on all marginalized communities. The building of walls and jails. Apocalyptic forest fires, floods and storms. A totalitarian state.

An "apocalypse" that isn't coming, but already here.

All power to autonomous relief efforts, anti-fascists, the anarchists and the brave souls who understand what power has in store for us and what we must do to stop them.

Let them eat sand


Sole is a revolutionary, experimental hip-hop artist that has released over a dozen studio albums. He is known as a pioneer of avante guard rap and founded anticon records in 1998. He has toured the world multiple times, playing shows in Bosnia, Russia, Australia, North America, Greece and beyond. His breakthrough album, Selling Live Water is considered a staple of underground hip-hop, and in his 2 decade career his music have been featured in almost every major music publication.
Sole’s catalogue covers a vase amount of ground, from the post-rock influence of his work with the Skyrider Band, his early “experimental underground hip-hop” with producers like Jel & Odd Nosdam to his later more overtly political with platinumcertified rap producer DJ Pain 1. Sole is also a producer and beat-maker, and under the monicker mansbestfriend he has produced 7 albums that were self released and he later formed an instrumental band with his wife Yasamin called WHITENOISE in 2014.
In 2009 sole left anticon and began releasing records 100% independently and has since gone on to create his own label called “Black Box Tapes.” Upon moving to Denver in 2009 sole has been deeply involved in social struggles and activism and his music has taken on a more intentional political slant. Sole’s firebrand of anarchistic hiphop is truly in a realm of its own, inhabiting a space somewhere between the dance floor and the riot line.
Over the past few years sole has become deeply involved with radical media making and his podcast, The Solecast features interviews with revolutionaries, academics, activists, anarchists, and musicians. His podcast seeks to connect the dots between culture and resistance, between media and education. Prior guests include Will Potter, Mckenzie Wark, P.O.S., Abbie Martin, Sage Francis, and countless others. Sole is a proud member of the Channel Zero Podcast Network.

Sole’s recent work has been featured in 2DopeBoyz, Spin ,Counterpunch, SF Weekly, Russia Today, Tiny Mixtapes, Truthout and most recently on C-Span Book TV performing alongside Jeremy Scahill & The Intercept Staff.
