In Beats, Chill, Electronic, Instrumental, Zone Out by JeffLeave a Comment

Cleveland-based producer Shamana has a SoundCloud full of beats that often borrow vocals from popular rappers, only to twist them into weirdly supernatural, lo-fi trap beats. I believe this guy is in his late teens/early 20’s, but the sounds he’s cranking out are impressively thoughtful and sickeningly creative. “When is god gonna kill me” is one of his newer tracks: …

June – x

After crawling through SoundCloud for way too long I found “x” by June and had to share it. It’s an older song but hey, it’s new to me. “x” is an instrumental piece that uses reverberated vocals and crisp trap percussion to create a sound that transcends this life and creeps into the unknown territory beyond.

instupendo – light lock.

In Beats, Chill, Downtempo, Electronic, Instrumental, Melancholy, Zone Out by JeffLeave a Comment

The latest song from Philadelphia beatsmith instupendo is a 3 minute instrumental masterpiece. Smokey, meandering percussion unfolds alongside waves of hazy sounds — blanketing the song in daydream inducing vibes. I think it’s safe to say that instupendo has established a sound and style that sets himself apart in this vast sea of modern producers.

Makuda – Valley

In Beats, Chill, Downtempo, Instrumental, Zone Out by JeffLeave a Comment

Describing his style as “story telling music”, Makuda seems to have a knack for creating some seriously moody instrumentals. His new song “Valley” is a slow-burning track that’s loaded with texture. Several effects are layered overtop of spacey electric guitar and a steady, downtempo beat. The resulting sound walks a fine line between chilled out and unsettling. This one is …
