Griselda production stalwart, Daringer, teams up with Fat Beats to assist with the 11th instalment of their Baker’s Dozen series. The 13 beats provide a nice insight into Daringer’s methods and shine a light on why he has fast become the favourite of many of today’s rap fans. Daringer himself says that his dad was a jazz pianist and so he grew up listening to a lot of improvised sessions, which definitely influenced his sometimes unconventional sequencing. The collection is available to stream below and downloads can be found on Bandcamp. Continue reading “Daringer: Baker’s Dozen (Stream)”
Ohbliv has been on my radar ever since I first heard his production work on various Mutant Academy projects.

Ohbliv sees this new release as a follow up to his contribution to the Baker’s Dozen series, which is put together by Fat Beats. For the recording he drew for a number of production tools, including his favourite – the SP-404. Give Thanks is available to stream in full below. Continue reading “Ohbliv: Give Thanks (Stream)”
