King Britt's 'Kingstrumentals'

Low Life Inc. friend King Britt hit us with some of his latest work in the studio.

He's called the project 'Kingstrumentals' and it was all produced analogue style which I love. 18 unreleased tracks of that King Britt snap and boom bap!

Here's what King had to say about the project:

Sometimes in the studio, I feel I have too many options. Too many software choices, synths, etc. I felt like I needed to go back to the essence of making beats. So I dusted off the MPC2000 and grabbed stacks of wax from my library to make beats. It was such a wonderful feeling to just flip beats again. Wasn’t even thinking of releasing them, just an exercise for my brain.

The fun part was that I only used the floppy drive. Only 12sec of sample time for each joint.

All kicks, snares and sounds are all from records. Mixed raw, right out of the MPC stereo outs. Done in 1 week in April 2009 (one or two oldies thrown in for good measure)

Just some boom bap vibes for all my peeps who just love a good loop…

Enjoy and share !
