Here's a reminder that good instrumental beat music isn't limited to hip-hop-based rhythm.

Dutch producer gainsome unveils "Kitchen Party", the focus tune of his new EP, out via our friends Vokall Records. Just like the title suggests, it's the most wonderful intersection of chill & upbeat, what I call slow-dance, or groove-along.

The usual jazzy, chill melodies found in chillhop - wonderful keys & guitars in this case, are paired with afrobeat-inspired drums, summery shakers & curious sound design. Makes you want to head to the beach straight away, doesn't it?

The whole Settle EP, inspired by the notion of slow living, is a pure delight - make sure to check it out.
