For our new Pick Of The Week we decided to hop on the bandwagon and bring you a Christmas edition! These days the blogosphere is full of Xmas-related music, but we decided to pick a track you might not know yet.
Incise is a Canadian producer who mainly creates mellow music, but he flirts with genres as Electronica as well. Being signed to Japanese label Goontrax, makes him collegues of artists as Jazz Addixx, Soulution, ArtOfficial, Move.Meant and Tha Connection.
Personally I got introduced to Incise by Prince Ali’s album ‘I Miss 1994‘. Incise produced the album, with the introduction (creatively called ‘Incisetroduction’) being the first eargasm I got because of Incise’s productions.
In 2008 Incise released his debut album, called ‘Nobody’s Story’. He took care of the productions, while guests as The 49ers, The Stereotypes, Nieve and Muneshine provided him with vocals. You can buy the album here with a limited edition miniature LP sleeve.
Because Christmas is coming, we decided to pick a Xmas-related track this week. Incise released a track called ‘Christmas Exclusive’ last year, a collaboration with The Stereotypes from Illinoise. Listen to a preview below, but don’t forget to tune in to Laid Back Radio to hear the full track:
