This weekend has been pretty busy as I’ve been out in the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn to cover the Afropunk Festival this year but we’ll be back to normal sometime next week. But let’s get to business, folks.
British producer Paul White has established himself as a hip-hop producer of note, as he’s produced tracks off Danny Brown’s XXXX and Old; however, with the release of his forthcoming debut, Shaker Notes. White reveals that he’s a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, who doesn’t need to depend on a sampler for his work. In fact, “Where You Gonna Go” is a languid and incredibly limber house track (sort of) played with live instrumentation, which gives the track the warmth of old analog recording but paired with swirling electronics and natural sounds, the track becomes subtly hypnotic.
