‘The Record Press’ single from Low Hiss

‘The Record Press’ is the latest single from Low Hiss‘s SM debut ‘EP-303‘, a conceptual 12-track instrumental project which follows a vintage vinyl record through the production process from creation to shipping. Each of the tracks are fashioned primarily using the 303 model of the ‘SP’ sampler/drum machine, used by many producers to craft classic hip hop records, especially throughout the 90’s Golden Era and into the early 00’s.

EP-303-cover
Lyon, France producer/beatmaker/turntablist/cratedigger Low Hiss has premiered his new project ‘EP-303′ on iTunes. The 12-track collection was fashioned exclusively using an SP-303, the weapon of choice used to produce the beats & music behind countless classic hip hop records from the 90’s ‘Golden Era’.
Listen to ‘La Vie Est Belle':
The narrative of the record, although largely instrumental, is conceptual in nature, and follows a vinyl record through its physical production process from its birth in ‘The Cutting’, to the record store shelf. Definitely for fans of Pete Rock, Madlib, Onra, SubjectJazz, Durazzo, etc. Coming soon to Amazon, GooglePlay, and streaming services.

ScratchedVinyl.com reviews JB Nimble & Onewerd’s ‘The Waiting Room’…

…an album that bangs, and often begs you turn the volume up. – ScratchedVinyl.com

jb-tyler-review

“…The Waiting Room, particularly OneWerd’s production, draws equally amongst the funk of Quannum, the weird electronic beats of anticon., and the jazzy beats found amongst early Project Blowed. You can’t go wrong with ingredients like that. The result is an album that bangs, and often begs you turn the volume up. Nimble and Werd are emcees that have fun with abstract imagery and braggadocio, with flows that have roots in someone like Eyedea. They talk plenty of shit, but do their best to keep it fresh at the same time. It all comes together nicely, and you’ll have fun catching all the turns of phrase that these two cook up…”
