It’s been awhile since I’ve popped my head into the beat scene. And it’s always nice to see Manchester-based producer, Mecca:83, still dishing out the tracks.
His latest collaboration with SoCal beat maker, Question, is as smooth as it comes. Perfect fluttering keys and a massively fluid beat. Doesn’t hit much better than this.
Mecca:83 undoubtedly always lays it down but today we’re in for a special treat. He takes Von Pea’s original track, “Full Time,” and puts his own spin on it with his classic warping synth-laden beats. I especially dig the fluttering keys he throws in and a couple plucks on the guitar.
Late night music, this one should be a staple on the playlists.
How have I not heard of this local before? I’ve got plenty of love for Rise’s label, Free Form Records, where this gentleman’s smooth flow calls home but this is the first time I’ve caught wind of DistantStarr.
He’s got a laid-back style, hints of the golden-age with a contemporary spin on his beats and I’m just digging all of it. Wake up Philadelphia, this guy is in our backyards – open your ears. Listen to his latest 4-track album, Seekers, below and keep an eye on him, I hope this is only the beginning.
It’s going to be just a fine day. I’ve got a new instrumental track from the lovely Mecca:83 to report.
If you haven’t checked out any of his past work then this fresh track will school you in all the right ways. “Chapter Two (For Lucie)” comes stocked with fundamentally sound hip-hop beats and careful layers of samples and effects. There’s also a fabulous strings sample to neatly wrap everything up at the conclusion.
Chapter Two (For Lucie) – Mecca:83
Right-click and enjoy.
Just like bFunk and his appreciation for music via Nice In The Headphones, I’ve got the same love for one of the most relaxing days of the week. On Sundays everyone’s in a different mode, be it a nice and calm day inside, running errands in town, or sitting behind the desk getting some work done, this last day of the week is one like none other.
There are few labels that I can dig every project they’ve got their hands in but UK-based Free Form Records (Rise’s creation that hosts a plethora of downtempo electronic music) is one I can always rely on. This Tuesday on January 10th, Innobushu will be dropping his Distraction EP that leans more on funky song composition than his previous sample-heavy work. Take a listen below and pre-order here.
We’ve talked about this cat before, his smooth production and beats are just too hard to ignore. I want to throw a classy dinner party with his swanky tunes guiding the night’s soundtrack. This song is a bonus track off the Manchester artist’s album Life Sketches Vols 1&2.
