If you loved “KVNB.” previous album “N U A G E S”, I bet you will love this one even more. He remained loyal to his LoFi influences and the spacey vibes you got used to listen to in his previous projects.
In N U A G E S II he picked his best 20 beats from the last quarter of 2018 to last quarter of 2019. This album completes the N U A G E S series.
First official instrumental project by Monaki, After many years of experimentation on this machine, now is the time to release this ode to the mpc 4000. Each track has its own mood and Monaki is master in the art of making evolving sounds even with a non-linear sequencer. Inspired by abstract hip-hop and boom-bap, he shares his musical culture through rhythmic and catchy productions.
This is “The World Meets” second project. This project is a world wide collaboration of 12 producers paying hommage to “A Tribe Called Quest”! 12 beatmakers chop and screw the same samples that the tribe used, or their vocals, and bring it to new light! .
First solo instrumental album by Sqreeb. Each track is based on various samples found locally on records in each city, from artists of each country. It’s a shout out to central europa jazz of Czech Republic, Hungary, Austria and Italy. All the samples are chopped and replayed in various ways with the help of classic sampling gear.
After the release of his instrumental album ”insprd.” back in the spring of 2017, KVNB comes back in force with a new beat tape for the summer season of 2018 . He brings a raw sound which is defined as lo-fi, boom bap, jazz hop or chillhop by many. Remaining faithful to his style, the beatmaker from the northshore of montreal pushed his skills to another level on N U A G E S. The album title reflects clearly the young producer’s last 6 months.
”someone told me a few months ago that I seemed to be on a nice cloud but it wouldn’t last. What that person didn’t know .. is I’ve been on that cloud for the past few years and I don’t plan my landing anytime soon.. It gave me the inspiration for the album title. Nuage means cloud in french. I had a big boost of inspiration the past 3 months before the release. 3/4 of the album was made in the last 3 months to be honest. We keep learning every day. This whole year that passed was probably my most productive ever musically. I’ve been so locked in, I was able to develop new techniques and I feel at ease with those now. What could’ve took me hours to make a year ago takes me only a few minutes now. I think it’s the compound effect of the last 8-9 years that brought me to this level now ”. This album is the ideal recipe for studying, reading or simply to hang out in good company. Chill vibes for all occasions. Good listening !
This is an instrumental album made in 3 days in a remote location near montréal. When canadian winters get hard thats when the beatmaking magic begins ,hand picked records , multiple synths and samplers gathered with some dope producers bringing the HEAT right back up !
