Ever since debuting on Dusted Wax Kingdom, Slim The Chemist‘s forte has been productional diversity. From neck-snapping beats on Backyard Vibes and with his Raw Flavour Clik, to hip-moving Brazilian samples on Em Poucas Palavras. And exactly that variety is what you can expect of this new EP by the German beatmaker. Perspective, released in affiliation with The Find.
On “Fly”, a pianist (who happens to be Slim’s father) plays live keys over the mellow MPC tapping. The title track takes a completely different turn with an eerie beat—a good fit with preceding track “Beat47”, which makes the listener feel like being lost in a jungle, with an ancient MPC tribe creeping up from the bushes.
“The idea of the project was to capture different life moments through samples I found in various periods in time”, says Slim. “That’s where the name comes from: creating perspectives on certain life moments through layering rare samples to new compositions and different kind of vibes.”
