As technology improves, it’s clear that the demand for beats is on the rise. Everyday it seems that a new beat maker has seemed to break through to the modern mainstream crowd. This has lead to an extremely saturated market in the hip-hop community. For those of you that don’t know, hip-hop was originally derived from beat breaks and samples from classical records. Although this is an extremely beautiful form to create a beat, it seems that the samples don’t catch the same interest as they used to. Many would agree that the process for sampling has seemed to become washed and repetitive.
This is where I introduce you to one of the most abstract mixtapes I have ever heard from one of the most talented artists I have ever met. From the beginning to the end, I guarantee you, this is nothing like you have ever listened to. Unprecedented arrangements, never before used samples, and wicked boom-bap style drum samples all influence the outcome of this tape. My favorite track, production wise, has to be “Unt1.Interlude.” The sample used for the track is from the famous 1971 film “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. It’s a perfect interlude to give the listener a mental break before diving into the final track on the project, “Home.” Angryface submits himself into an extremely vulnerable position on the outro track and opens up about his struggles with mental health and isolation.
