Roast Beatz finally makes good on the promise implicit in all those drops over the last few years to deliver a full-length album which comes out shortly on Badboe’s Breakbeat Paradise label. The pair of them should probably get someone they both know to write the PR blah for that…
(PRESS RELEASE) With his sophomore album, DJ Roast Beatz provides luxury in an age of austerity and boom-bap in an age of boom-wack.
Connoisseurs of heavyweight rap know that production of the finest beats is a process that cannot be rushed and so will appreciate the craftsmanship bestowed on this album – the earliest elements of which entered the maturation process nearly half a decade ago. They will appreciate also the winning synthesis of finely roasted beats and the very best in vocal craftsmanship by world-class lyrical architects from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.
Luxury Boom Bap is a truly immersive experience of premium verse, peerless party breakbeats and superior downtempo sophistication. Savour, if you will, the effortless class of Do What You Love featuring Kylie Earl and Dizzy Dustin, the head-nod allure of trans-Atlantic posse cut Heavy Ear Play featuring Action Bronson, Jehst Brotherman and Stig Of The Dump, the party-funk finesse of Mystro vehicle Pour Me and the classic party breakbeat acrobatics of Carnival Aerobics.
Make no mistake – Luxury Boom Bap is the very last word in hip-hopulence.
