Rather than staying in step with the crowded downtempo jazz and short loops scene, on ‘What’s The Word?’ Mr. Rust has veered towards funkier and dense composition.
Vancouver producer Mr. Rust returns with a solid selection of instrumental hip hop tracks on the EP What’s the Word? Rather than staying in step with the crowded downtempo jazz and short loops scene, Rust has veered towards funkier and dense composition.
Many tracks feature heavier moving breakbeats, switch-ups, bridges and even cuts into live field recordings of Vancouver (including its mass transit system). A great selection for the summer season. Available for free below.
Editor’s Note: The tracks on Mr. Rust’s new EP are like his contributions to The Find: original and guaranteed fresh. I have to say the opening track surprised me the most: it sets the tone for a dynamic and versatile 30-minute instrumental journey. Short but recommended, this EP is definitely not a dime a dozen.
