I didn't need to try too hard to think of a pun to start this feature. Sun's shining, weather is cold af, mood is good (given I am under quarantine for the next 8 days), so it's time to ride some chill waves provided by our mate saib. We've been covering him since 2016 and when it comes to breezy, bossa nova-inspired lofi and beats, he is the go-to person!

The Berlin-based, Casablancan beatmaker Saib is back for 2022 with a brand new 13-track LP, entitled Under The Stars with Hip Dozer. The album features solo tracks and collaborations with key figures of the beats and lofi hip hop scene, including Tom Doolie, Bluestaeb ("Jordans", which we featured), Flofilz, Cap Kendricks and Leaf Beach. Alot of names we love here at the Fox.

We have a message from Saib on Under The Stars. The producer shares, "I stay committed to diversifying my musical palette and inspiration sources. The release is a musical journey that will accompany the listener throughout the day, ranging from early morning relaxed grooves, lush melodies to jazzy four on the floor beats you'd hear in a lounge.”
