defbymisadventure‘s new release “traffic inbound from space and….” chops up a classic reggae track and he sure gives it something different from the other versions I have heard. Nice chops and groove as well.

Cosm -” Open Your Eyes “(Big O Instrumental Remix)

Cosm flips ” Open Your Eyes ” by producer Big O. The beat here is very reflective and lush. The layering is adequate and strays from adding too much unnecessary elements.

ToatieMadeIt – “Cicada”

 

ToatieMadeIt is a new producer who splashed on our radar and her new release “Cicada” was what gripped us. The style is eclectic and punchy, interesting choice of instruments too.

 

 

 

defbymisadventure – “cyanide”

 

defbymisadventure appears one more on our list with “cyanide” He makes use of a somber cinematic sample and vocals from ODB and Heath ledger’s Joker and more to good effect. It’s a bit strange but has that classic 90s boombap mood all through.

Behind The Beat – “Cerebration”

 

I must admit that “Cerebration” by producer Behind The Beat is a bit odd. The sample placement is off in a weird way and the drums are a bit soft but in reality, these elements make it unique.

Colleen Wang – “Ye” (Burna Boy Cover)

Colleen Wang makes her second appearance and she goes for something different. she reimagines “Ye” by Burna Boy and gives it her own twist. she uses the violin as the main melody on this one and the result is superb. Totally unexpected but brilliant all the way.

 

Moonchild – “Wise Women” (Remix by VinnieLooper)

 

“Wise Women” gets a remix by VinnieLooper who fuses jazz/hip-hop in a seamless fashion. This is solid from start to finish.

 

Mdsmith64 – “Slide Away”

Mdsmith64 gets into the moody somber zone on “Slide Away.” The laidback drums and lush guitar runs are quite alluring and add to the introspective feeling of the track.

Big O closes out the list with something soothing titled “Frm aH Boy 2 aH Man” He keeps it simple too, with solid punchy drums, moody textures, and soft percussions to close it out.
