More melodic lazy Sunday beats (audio)


When I had posted that Kiefer Dilla track a few weeks back, I had no idea that he had album coming out soon, much less that it was going to be released on Stones Throw subsidiary, Leaving Records. So let this be a lesson to you kids; do your homework.

One thing that really helps set Kiefer apart from a lot of other beat makers is just how melodically inclined he is. On “Kickinit Alone”, the last track from his album by the same name, the expressive piano and keys take center stage, taking on a jazzy, lyrical style that’s no usually seen or heard in this genre. Mood-wise, the song feels a lot like much like the title of the track; meandering and often going around in circles like a man with too much time on his hands, not really sure what to do but not really stressing it either.

Kiefer’s Kickinit Alone is coming out in May on Leaving Records. For those who want a little more musicality from their beat makers should definitely check this out.
