Whether it’s a sample from a forgotten folk record, dusty 70s grooves or golden era hip hop, producer Bias turns it into soothing beats that pleasantly enter your ear like a fresh Q-tip.
Whether it’s a sample from a forgotten folk record, dusty 70s grooves or golden era hip hop, producer Bias turns it into soothing beats that pleasantly enter your ear like a fresh Q-tip. This month the former DJ of Lewis Parker drops an EP titled Dreamland on his own imprint, Canteen Records.
Music: Bias – Dreamland
In affiliation with Canteen Records we offer the title track as free download for a limited time only. The uptempo yet touching track opens with an intense drum break that assists an emotional vibrato vocal sample. It’s the perfect opening track for the 5-track collection of dark and moody soundscapes.
The Dreamland EP is as sample-heavy as his older material, but the samples on Dreamland aren’t as recognizable as on his album Time & Tide and on his first three EPs over a decade ago. To name a personal favorite: Relax And Rock With Bias, where he weaves vocal cuts of forgotten 90s hip hop gems by A.D.O.R. and Casual with downtempo drum breaks and atmospheric scratches that wouldn’t be out of place in the oeuvre of DJ Krush.
