We have so much to celebrate today. Good music, Friday, summer's easy chill vibe, and Mr. Käfer's upcoming EP Underneath. I am honored to showcase with you the lead single from the record titled "About That Time" which dropped a few hours ago.

The track has this beautiful timeless feel to it, something which perfectly matches the energy of the weather around me - a warm summer Friday afternoon with a much-needed breezy wind. Continuously pushing the boundaries of his introspective and nostalgic sound, Mr. Käfer seamlessly melds the classic and contemporary once again. His beats remain faithful to hip-hop's roots, yet he ingeniously infuses them with futuristic, expansive elements borrowed from diverse musical genres.

As someone who has been a fan of the Cologne-based beatmaker and producer, I feel obliged to say - I am utterly excited about what Underneath will have to offer.

When it comes to the essence of "About That Time", Karim shares, "A soulful beat that carries a peaceful and easy mood. Groovy percussive drums, a mellow piano, and vibrant synthesizer sounds set the tone for a good and easy mood. The beat is inspired by consciously looking back in time every now and then and feeling grateful for all the positive things that have happened."
