We don’t always get a chance to pay homage to or to review producers, but I have to take a moment to inform all of you about an up and coming producer who goes by the name of One Love Beats. Love pairs a roster of skillfully chopped jazz and soul samples with commanding kicks and snares to give you the ultimate head nodding experience.
This kid is crazy nice with the samples, as shown on his latest release “Lovely Sounds”. The album lives up to its namesake, boasting 21 dazzling instrumentals for you to freestyle over (or to hone your freestyling skills). The affluent rhythms are crisp and clear; it’s almost as if you can close your eyes and ride the wave patterns with each sound that is emitted from your speakers.
Emcees and artists that are looking to expand the instrumentation of their tracks beyond the synthetic sounds of today’s monotonous radio rotation need to get with this guy. He is utilizing the foundational aspect of the art form, sampling, to propel the genre forward while creating creatively unique tracks for all to partake. Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, his beat tape is for sale for only $.50 at http://1lovebeats.bandcamp.com/album/lovely-sounds Now that sounds lovely!
