The work created by Audio Dope is some of the most original and inspiring blend of trip-hop, down-tempo, electronica, and lo-fi hip-hop I've ever heard in my life. Last week the Swiss producer dropped his long-awaited LP Gone and the release is packed with captivating sounds and beautiful, heart-warming electronic melodies. It also features Noah Slee and Rome Fortune - 2 artists I deeply love and respect.
Today, however, I've chosen to spotlight my favorite track from the album - the spiritual trip "Vernon Road". Built around a short, but sweet vocal sample, the song feels like a piano love lullaby dipped in a future trap electronica sauce.
It's equal parts energizing and relaxing, which couldn't be any better. A damn good reason to fall in love with music once more.
