We've got the ultimate cruise soundtrack for you today. Released by our mates at Sichtexot Records, Knowsum's "Hotel Lazy" is an homage to that classic funk / boom-bap sound from the early days of beatmaking.

The Offenbach-based producer (real name Nelson Maria Brandt) is certainly one of the OGs in the game. I had forgotten, but this feature brought up some 2015 memories of when he dropped his Play God & Shit Happens record - pure gold which should be in your collections.

Going back to "Hotel Lazy", I just love the effortlessness surrounding the beat and while the drums are super tight and hard-hitting, the keys just scream "grab a beer and go out".
