Desperate times call for some sonic therapy. We are plagued by a barrage of stressful thoughts and ideas on a constant basis, listening to a good beat tape sans lyrics is a must-do exercise, consider it a pressure release valve. This tape from Berkeley based producer, Ambiguous Sounds, fits the description, or prescription if you will. There is a mixture of 90’s hip hop themed instrumentals mixed in with some low-key jazzy joints (I could see Black Thought killing this stuff), this is elevator music for dope elevators. The project is self described as “inspired by lust lost & loneliness, attempted different styles to keep folkz interested, & i kept the beats nice & short for all the ADD folkz.” Sign me up.
My favorite tracks are the following: catch22, sheets and skwert. Hit the pharmacy, download here.
