German Lo-Fi Instrumental HipHop: Flughand

When we were coming up, lo-fi hiphop meant DIY 4-track bedroom production with crunchy drums, skewed levels, and that prevailing background hiss. Or a 10th generation tape dub of some obscure underground group from Minnesota. Recently, the term “lo-fi” has come to describe something completely different: a specific sub-genre of instrumental hiphop. One that’s extremely well-produced but characterized by a mellow, introspective style. Pretty and subtle. As if Brian Eno made a hiphop record.

Flugehand’s latest release, entitled “Foremmi,” serves as the quintessential example of this new branch of hiphop. It’s the producers 4th release and demonstrates the high level of maturity of someone who’s been pushing the envelope of the artform. The sample choices are fantastic (jazzy), the sound is lush (of a hi-fi quality) but most impressive is the handling of his loops – the changes are so beautifully nuanced that it’s almost wrong to label them “loops.” Anyways, we highly recommend this one. Perfect listening with coffee first thing in the morning or the last record you put on before bed! Peep it here https://flughand.bandcamp.com/

WeStayTrue instrumental HipHop Drop

Another batch of instrumental hiphop beat LPs just landed in the shop. This time they hail from Mr. Brown’s UK label WeStayTrue, which consistently drops the illness. Both titles were made using the classic SP1200 beat machine, giving them a fat, lush, warm sound. The artwork recalls the simplicity of old jazz covers. The Armed Dukes looks like it came straight from the first series of CTI’s catalogue. Read more and do some listening on their soundcloud https://westaytrue.bandcamp.com/
