Living Spaces by Gradient Prophet is a beautiful downtempo trip. The instrumental outfit blends downtempo hip hop and jazz into a tangy sonic brew. Using a mix of synths, beats, samples and live orchestration, the sound is always organic.
Danny Veekens (The Netherlands) started The Find back in 2007, while running a blog called Musical Schizophrenia for several years. Online and in print he couldn't find what he wanted to find, so he wanted to provide others with a source to discover slept-on hip hop, jazz, soul & funk. Fast-forward: he's still always on the look for something new (and old). On one hand as an editor/journalist, and on the other hand as a music lover and novice vinyl collector.
