One time for your mind is the first instrumental Hip Hop album by DJ/producer Ewon12bit from Helsinki, Finland. Following the never-dying recipe of traditional sample-based hiphop and keeping things simple like they were back in the days, Ewon12bit’sbeats keep you vibin’ from start to finish. Making this record by using classic hardware, vinyl samples and analog tape, a soundscape similar to those early 90’s Hip Hop records that many grew up listening to is created.
No corners have been cut in terms of replicating the same sonic characteristics of what people refer to as the ”Golden era” of hiphop: heavy lowpass filtering, sample layering and slamming drums is what it’s all about. These relaxed, soulful and misty beats of old New York flavor will get you in the mellowed-out zone.
Keep the realness alive and order yourself a copy of this future classic on a high quality wax.
“If there’s one thing ewon knows, it’s hiphop. One of the most soulful beatlayers Finland has ever witnessed – yeah, I said it. Even the OG gear he’s rocking tells you only one story: this man is serious about his sh*t.”
“ewon12bits album is very good, proper classic era vibes, sounds great all the way through, almost like a lost classic!”
