45hz052 – Handbook – Assortment – Loveless Records

November 22, 2012 § 1 Comment

Handbook is a UK based producer. His Loveless Records debut is Assortment and its absolutely brilliant. I tried to come up with some next essay about just how much of a PROPER hip hop record this is, but I was stumped. This is one of those releases you just need to sit down and listen to, seriously.

Think of some of the beats from Crooklyn Cuts, The Shining and Doughnuts and you’re heading down the right track. Slick, polished production reigns but still oozes ounces of soul and funk. Its like the calendar is stuck in a loop between 92 and 94.

If you’re a fan of Kilamanjaro Studios/Dilla and Premier, you’re no doubt going to be in headnod heaven. This is a BIG big look for Loveless and a big look for UK based instrumental hip hop in general.
