Hard electronic Rap/HipHop

I spend most of my time with lndustrial, Acid and Goa trance genres as well as weird modular stuff... but I'm an old time 90's old school West Coast Rap lover too (Public, Enemy, NWA, Snoop, Dre etc)...

Recently I heard this tune- Long Live the Chief- Jidenna:


Completely blew me away. The intelligent rhymes, but especially the synth work. Loved it.

And then I saw this increidble video from Moog- Must have watched this 20x:


Mike Dean. I've never heard of this guy.
After watching this video I would have thought this guy is a hard techno or experimental electronic producer of some kind... and from the YT comments, I can't even get my head round him being behind a lot of the music of Kanye West (i have to admit to have never ever listened to anything by KW, so i don't know what it's like)

Can someone point me to some more music in this specific style?

Does Mike Dean have any solo work in that style???

Thanks.

OP, why haven't you heard Yeezus by Kanye West if that's what you're into?

You'll get hooked on the first two seconds of that album

EL-P's - Cancer 4 Cure album

There is a few hip hoppy tracks on Lazer Sword' first LP too

Rubberoom - Architechnology. is a underloved classic too. They sound a bit like Organized Konfusion, but over more electric beats. Very gritty!

I was cool when he used to come on here and chop it up with everyone. I loved his early days with scarface.

I am a fan of a lot of El~P's Def Jux releases that he helped produce and Run The Jewels has some good ones.

NMS had two good albums :

I haven't listened to that one in a long time. You made me grab it, so that I can play it in the car tomorrow. Thanks!

Really good first albums by both. Thavius Beck and Subtitle (Lab Waste) have some good solo work as well.
