edbl beats pt. 12020
edbl beats vol. 1 is being released chronologically, so this collection of 6 tracks are are the oldest beats I have come up with on this release, dating from November 2017 - November 2018. The beat for ‘I’ll Wait’ featuring Kofi Stone was also born during this period, though for obvious reasons doesn’t feature here! It was a really fun challenge to go through ideas from so long ago and make them sound how I would want to release them today. The opening track ‘piano/intro’ is pretty much as it was apart from the ending, and a lot of the tracks are named after when/where I was at the time - ‘septemba' being from September 2018, ‘octo9’ October 9th, ‘ibis glasgow’…you can probably guess where I came up with that one. I have to shout out Jamie Parker on keys and Mark Perry on trumpet for their contribution to ‘septemba’, their riffs and solos really lifted the track.
