Legendary producers K-Def and [Mark] The 45 King joined forces for Back To The Beat, a back-to-the-basics instrumental hip hop album. It’s now available on vinyl and cassette on Redef (where else?), but you can also enjoy it in full with the album stream below.
“Conceptually, the album is hip hop at its simplest, but most altruistic form, and doesn’t deviate from 45’s prior history of joining forces with another producer on a single project. Every beat and every sample has been meticulously chosen in order to get their message of exploring boom bap in 2014, and neither musician falls flat. K and 45 have stripped the tracks down to their bare essentials, leaving us with a raw and explosive ‘less is more’ feel-good style production.”
