I wrote this unofficial "concept" EP in a week, as a production exercise.
Apart from a bunch of technical goals that I set myself, I wanted to just mess around with different genres (trap, old school hip-hop and breaks etc) and also thought it'd be a great opportunity to go overboard with "world music" sounds (something I really love), and to put these traditional instruments in an electronic context.
I wasn't planning on releasing these tracks but seeing that they ended up sounding better than I thought they would, I decided to share them as an "unofficial" EP and early X-mas present, while I'm working on my actual proper next release, which is due out early 2015.
I'm hoping to do this again in the future. It was refreshing to not overthink the shit out of everything and to just have some tongue-in-cheek fun with writing music on a deadline.
Hope you dig :) Please share...
