Apollo Brown - Clouds 12"
Out of Stock
Instrumental Hip Hop is a tricky proposition. Hip Hop production is generally predicated on samples and loops, and essentially takes a backseat to emceeing when it comes to telling the story. But for a Hip Hop album to succeed relying solely on instrumentation, a delicate balance must be struck. To successfully captivate the listener, they cannot simply be subjected to the typical looping and sampling fare of the day; just as lyrics progress through the duration of a song, so must the production in an instrumental project—all of which must be done without abandoning the tools and techniques which command the classification of being “Hip Hop.” Apollo Brown’s Clouds aims to strike this balance.
