Anticon (often styled as anticon.) is an independent record label based in Los Angeles, California.[1] It was founded in 1997 by seven musicians and manager Baillie Parker.[2] It is now collectively owned among six musicians, co-founder Baillie Parker, and manager Shaun Koplow.[3] The original musicians signed to Anticon were once referred to as the Anticon collective.[4]



The label's roster of artists has been described as "the hip-hop equivalent of post-rock" and "avant-garde hip-hop," also called "trip-hop."[2] Releases feature material created by its members, affiliates, and extended musical family. Although Anticon cohered originally within alternative hip hop circles, Anticon's founders have become only tangentially related to hip hop, and the label has begun releasing music in the indie rock and electronica genres.[5] Artists signed to Anticon are based on the West Coast, the East Coast, the Midwest, and Canada. The label has also signed artists in the United Kingdom.

The artists within the collective have been known to perform and release music in solo and group form. Artists on the label are known for frequent collaboration, both within and outside of their own collective. However, the Anticon collective has over time evolved into a group of separate artists who, despite sharing a similar progressive and often challenging indie quality, explore different styles of music including electronica and rock.[6] Many of the artists on Anticon are signed to multiple labels, and some have their own small, independent labels through which they have self-released material.

Anticon has also organized art exhibitions featuring visual art by several of the artists on the label.[7][8]

On February 9, 2010, co-founder Sole (Tim Holland) left Anticon exclaiming that it is time to try to push forward and find new opportunities.[9] He leaves assurance that this is a progressive decision and has nothing to do with his love for Anticon. He said, "There are no ill feelings between myself and members of anticon. I will continue to work with many of the artists and will always love them as brothers and consider them allies." He officially renounced his 1/8 of ownership and formal affiliations.[10]

The English word games are:
○   Anagrams
○   Wildcard, crossword
○   Lettris
○   Boggle.


Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.


Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
