Sucks To Your Asmar
In answer to a request, I tracked down this early EP by the far-out beatman and sometimes-producer for Circus and the Shape Shifters. The three instrumental songs presented here are wildly creative, moody, and infectious. I listened to them over and over and over again last night. Slow, nocturnal beats, vintage vocal snippets, eerie effects, something that sounds like an autoharp - it all coalesces to form a distinct, mature voice apart from the legions of faceless, cookie cutter ProTool robots out there. For comparison's sake, his vibe sometimes reflects that of Nobody, Dynomite D, Grantby, or Frane - good company as far as I'm concerned.
To whomever requested this, thank you for pointing me in this direction! I may have a new name to add to my list of favorite producers...
