Aesop Rock


Aesop Rock is the latest artist to contribute to Nike’s “Nike + Original Run” series…The Def Jukie’s piece, entitled All Day, is “a 45-minute continuous mix [that] was created specifically with runners in mind and reflects Aesop Rock’s distinct and unique style.” The snippet that we’ve heard has a retro space-funk feel, laidback with Aesop’s typically gravelly voice flowing on top.

In a press release, the man known to his mother as Ian Bavitz had this to say: “I wanted to create something that evolved enough that the sound was constantly fresh and attractive, as if the runner were moving through a set of differing cities or landscapes.”
