A compelling instrumentals set from producer Jansport J – with a big
sound, head nodding beat
craft that rarely lets up, and some really great use of samples – a set that feels inspired by classic hip hop without falling back on a "golden age" vibe. He's got an adventurous sensibility that feels akin to modern luminaries like Madlib or Dilla, without copping their styles in any way – a little more playful in spots, and moodier in others – you can definitely hear why he's earned production credits for stars and underground heavies alike, from Snoop, to Kurupt, to Blu and many more. Titles include "Sleep", "Awe", "Baby", "Last", "Clouds", "God", "Blue", "Low", "A Wake" and more.
