It always seemed like a safe bet to say that the forthcoming album from Elaquent was going to be a winner, and now that it is out in the open, I am happy to confirm the Ontario producer has done it again. In a step away from the instrumental projects he’s blessed us with over the last couple of years, on Forever Is A Pretty Long Time we find Elaquent bringing in a number of artists to accompany him. Kicking off with the lead single, Guidelines, featuring fellow Mello resident, Oddisee, the album also features some great contributions from Chester Watson, Guilty Simpson, Cavalier and Blu. The vocal tracks are mixed in with a few instrumental joys, including one of the album’s highlights, Joloff, along with the stone cold flyness of the Blu assisted, Reminisce, and the G-Funk echoes of Lottery Check, which features Brainorchestra. The album can be heard in full below and you can find downloads over on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Elaquent: Forever Is A Pretty Long Time (Stream)”
Elaquent has a new album on the way next month, following on from his Mello Music Group debut last year. Forever Is A Pretty Long Time moves away from the instrumental projects that have earned the Toronto producer many of his much-deserved plaudits, instead opting to flex his collaborative muscle with a string of solid features from a variety of different artists. With the inclusion of names like Chester Watson, Brainorchestra and Blu, this looks set to be another win for Elaquent and the label as a whole. The first taster from the project comes in the form of the Oddisee assisted, Guidelines, which you can listen to below. The full release is scheduled for 21 February, with pre-orders available on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Elaquent ft. Oddisee: Guidelines + LP News”
Another release not to be ignored, is the new project from Elaquent. The Toronto producer recently announced his signing to Mello Music Group and after a couple of tasters, we have now been granted full access to his first album in his new home – Blessing in Disguise.
The album was the result of a trip to Jamaica, which started with a stifling of Elaquent’s usual ease of creativity, before giving way to allow the inception of one of his strongest projects to date. You can stream Blessing in Disguise below. Continue reading “Elaquent: Blessing In Disguise (Stream)”
