To most it is no surprise that the French producer we know as Evil Needle is heavily influenced by nineties Hip-Hop music.
He is known for his crystal-clear, luminous sounds which most praise him highly for. On his latest album, entitled “Reminisce“, he delivers what you’d expect. Titty tight beats, sounding crispy as f*ck. Some might say it’s the usual recipe, but I’m still snacking away on all 11 songs myself at the moment.
I remember Evil Needle telling me he started messing around with making his drums sound live. Over the years it seems he has mastered this quite well as you can hear on tracks such as “Lullaby”. One of the reasons I still love this sound, is because I’m a sucker for downtempo melodic joints that gently brush the ear. “Sunday Morning” is the perfect example and like we say…shit is simply vibin’.
Reminisce marks his 3rd release with HW&W following “Equilibrium” & “Qualia” and only features JSMN on vocals. It’s big, it’s bad and it’s well worth it, so pick up a digital copy right here.
