“This is on point. Love it – beat of the week!” Huey Morgan (BBC 6 Music / Fun Lovin Criminals)
“REALLY love this. Great stuff!” Damon Minchella (Ocean Colour Scene / Paul Weller / The Who)
“EOM’s beats contain the type of raw emotion that takes you out of whatever you’re doing at the moment, and transforms your world into his. This album is a must-have!” Wax (Scrublife / Def Jam)
“EOM beats will make you happy. You’ll feel this with your soul, your head will nod, and your neck will snap!” Herbal T (Whiskey Den Recordings / The Damn Straights)
Hailing from Manassas in Virginia. EOM (or Elements of Music to give him his full title) is 27 year old producer Daniel Carey.
Compiled by label boss Lack of Afro, ‘Instrumentals. Volume 1’ is the first of two installments that bring together some of the least well-known (but many of the best) EOM beats of the last 5 years. Many of the tracks have either gone under the radar or have never before seen the light of day. Simply put: it’s soulful, instrumental hip-hop at its’ finest.
From the woozy opener ‘Faith, Love’, the string-heavy J Dilla-esque ‘Sweet Nothings’ & the quirky bounce of ‘Kids’ through to the call-to-arms, horn-led ‘Battles’; speaker-melting ‘Shai Interlude’ & the doo-wop head-nodder ‘Don’t Need’, the album showcases a producer that has an innate understanding of the genre, whilst having a sound that’s all his own.
Stay tuned for Volume 2, released in early 2016 on LOA Records.
Available on limited edition numbered cassette, signed & numbered promo CD & digital.
