Last time we spoke about the very rare and talented North West Based producer, Keyboard Kid, he had just released his album #RARE DROPS FROM THE SUN, which was a huge release for him halfway through December, 2012. Since then has been hard at work in the studio and recently released TWO new albums. The first one I’d like to present is called DON’T LEAVE BASEDWORLD. This is a 27 track album compiled of really smooth, atmospheric, beats that ultimately touch on the mellower side of Basedworld and leave you feeling nicely chilled out. My favorite track off this album would have to be Corpse Bride. This track opens up with a ghostly female voice nicely chopped up, and then the beat promptly drops in, perfectly fitting right behind the sample. What really left a footprint of Corpse Bride in my memory is the heavy bass line that’s got such an old school analog sound to it. It’s downright dirty. Check it out, you’ll know just what I’m talking about.
Here is what Keyboard Kid had to say about DON’T LEAVE BASEDWORLD…
“This Album Is #Rare, Treat It As Such..Let It Guide You On Your Based Journey..These Are Musical Scores For Your Lifes Movie.. This Music Is For The Based Community.. The True Based Supporters. The BasedGod Has Told Me To Spread The Based Knowledge And The Positivity.. Stay In BasedWorld..It’s Hell Outside….It’s Hot Whoadie.. It’s Hell On Earth..But I Got The Heata..Don’t Leave BasedWorld..Protect Me.. Protect Lil B..We Will Protect You.” – Keyboard Kid
Next up is Keyboard Kid’s latest album (released 12/1/13) Noah Calhoun. While DON’T LEAVE BASEDWORLD carried a darker tone throughout the entirety of the album, Noah Calhoun is the opposite of that. I’d call this an album of purely inspirational beats. Each track makes me feel like I could climb a mountain…like I could sail around the world tomorrow…like I could win the Olympics with no training…It makes feel like Noah Calhoun.
“I’M SO #RARE AND SO PRETTY..MY BEATS ARE THE BEST..FUCK U BITCH..IM THE FINEST BITCH..IM FINER THAN MY BITCH..I’M A BLONDE BEAUTIFUL BITCH” – Keyboard Kid
I had never heard of Matt-U before I heard this song, but he’s a sick producer. I just copped the Hungarian producer’s EP off of Subway Recording’s bandcamp site, it’s pretty damn dope. The tune below is forthcoming on Blackbox Record’s at some point in the next few months so if you dig it, keep your eyes pealed. Check out this new one, it caught my ear and I hope you guys dig it too.
I just found this guy on soundcloud, I instantly followed him. This guy seems to be coming up in the electronic game solely judging by his soundcloud (which honestly means nothing). He’s got a sick deep sound, and for this song I’m REALLY diggin this vibes. This Dutch producer has killed it with this smooth driving sub tune. I’m excited to keep watch on what else he has in his arsenal. Also, you can pick up his EP May 7th from Vulcan Audio! Go grab it.
