#42 | Hands – Raw Ekstra
Hands is a DJ and beatmaker from Stockholm, Sweden. He’s obviously doing stuff for a while now. A Discogs entry says that his first release dropped back in 2004. But we’re here for some recent shit. His first full instrumental album “Raw Ekstra” was released two weeks ago on PQuest Revivals. The LP comes with 10 mostly laid back tracks. A perfect album to chill that has a lotta variations in drum patterns and styles but always keeps a certain vibe. Melodic and jazzy samplesand lofi aesthetics alternate with futuristic and more modern sounds. The drums are knockin’ and the basslines going deep…as long you have speakers that can display a proper low end. Namean? Give it a listen! You won’t regret it! BTW: There are also limited vinyl copies available.
Favorite joints: “All Around” + “Raw Ekstrakshunz”
