One time for your mind is the first instrumental hiphop album by hiphop dj/producer ewon12bit from Helsinki, Finland. Following the never dying recipe of traditional sample-based hiphop and keeping things simple how they were done back in the days, this record keeps you vibin from start to finish.
Making this record by using classic hardware, vinyl samples and analog tape, a similar soundscape is created like those early 90’s hiphop records what many have been growing up listening to. There hasn't been any cut in corners when replicating the same sonic characteristics of what people refer as the ”Golden era”. Heavy lowpass filtering, sample layering and slamming drums is what its all about.
These relaxed, soulful and misty beats of old New York flavor will definitely get your in the zone. Keep the realness alive and order yourself a copy on a high quality wax.
Check out the album sampler mixed by DJ Neveready:
"If there's one thing ewon knows, it's hiphop. One of the most soulful beatlayers Finland has ever witnessed – yeah, I said it. Even the OG gear he's rocking tells you only one story: this man is serious about his sh*t.
"ewon12bits album is very good, proper classic era vibes, sounds great all the way through, almost like a lost classic!"
