Just in time for spring blooming, Hungarian producer and multi-instrumentalist Àbáse newest work pushes the vibe up. The creative behind the project, Szabolcs Bognar, marries his love for boom-bap hip hop beats with his background in worldly, psychedelic instrumentation through a session of multi-influence improvisation.
With each passing second, the plot thickens in Àbáse's "Yoru". Take notice of the intertwined instrumental samples, deep bass, tasty acoustic drums, and all the in-betweens of this ever-unfurling, sonic exhibition.
"The song was recorded during the ‘Invocation’ sessions with the same bandstand of two drums, percussion, bass, flute and keys. Similarly to ‘Skeme Goes All City’, I only had the chord changes and the rough idea in my head before we hit the studio and the song found its final form on the day of the recording. Except the basic chords and flute melody, all the parts are improvised.
I tried to merge my love of boom bap hip hop and improvisation with abstract, psychedelic elements and West African influences."
