I am proud of jinsang for the wonderful music he has produced, and the impact he has left in the boom bap community. Thank you for the some of the best times of my life, and I know this next chapter of your life will be incredible.
uyama hiroto composes one of the strongest jazz albums of 2016 with 'freefrom jazz.' Blending elements of jazz and hip-hop production, each track is boundless with each instrument directing its own path to the same goal.
Yung Bae returns with a collection of B Side tracks that may not fit in previous albums, but function together well. The album maintains a consistent groove, never relenting or overstaying its welcome.
Amalgam is the ambitious project from cellist Okkyung Lee and composer Christian Marclay. It is an ecosystem of controlled chaos, where each subtle nuance in sound makes a significant impact. I think, Jackson Pollock of music.
The Visitor is the melting pot of classical, jazz, soul, and psychedelia that people may not ask for, but certainly need. Bonet's voice is a mellow, heavy aroma - it wafts amidst a colorful, transcendent musical landscape.
Producers Siddiq and Vektroid form Palacio Del Rio, fusing the atmospheric, experimental and hip-hop in one cohesive work. Like a feather making its descent, the album is light and deceptive - no particular sound is expected, yet fits perfectly in its place.
Yung Bae, while retaining his traiditonal funk sound, toys with more jazz-centered pieces in Skyscraper Anonymous. Each song sounds polished and patiently arranged, making this arguably Bae's cleanest work yet.
solitude. is as much a beat tape as it is a gallery of fresh paintings. Each track's brevity reflects the brevity of our own lives - we are fragile wisps, swimming at the foot of a riptide of memories.
Sonically, jinsang produces sleepy jazz/boom-bap beats that eerily imitate the work of Nujabes. For those seeking quality production and brimming talent, jinsang births solitude. .
Japanese Breakfast, Psychopomp is a masterpiece. I am so glad I stayed up till 5am just to catch a listen right after release. I hear the compilation of genuine emotions that I can relate to, in the form of beautiful instrumentation and elegant vocals.
Once again, Yung Bae provides funky, nostalgic pieces that harken back to the golden era of Japanese disco. Disco Edits 2 is vivacious, exciting, and accessible to the unacquainted Japanese disco / future funk listener.
