Leftfield producer and visual artist - Asta Hiroki delivers a mellow jazzy hip hop beauty on ‘Between Love and Happiness (feat. Muhsinah)’, a hazy dream of a beat record that drifts into view and caresses your ears before floating away into the ether...
Providing the vocal focus on this single is the wonderfully soulful Washington DC -based vocalist – Muhsinah. A singer of real pedigree, who has collaborated with the likes of Flying Lotus, 14KT, Common, and Robert Glasper to name a few. Showing all of her talent in this track she lyricises about the difficult moments in relationships and provides a sleek, sensual and honest vocal performance.
And it’s packed up with a delicious side serving - ‘Losing Touch’ is a joint that wouldn’t be out of place in a Knxwledge or Madlib set. Morphing and shifting ideas from soulful, head-nodding beat into leftfield, ambient boom-bap.
It’s a proper release for the beat heads, and for those individuals who prefer their tracks sans-vocals there is an instrumental mix of the lead track included also.
