Your LoFix #6 – Boom Bap Beats & Bars
Welcome to The LoFix, a column to share some LoFi & ChillHop that I’ve recently discovered and love. Giving you that fix of chill; something we all need regularly. And if you’re feeling the tracks, do share them with your friends.
In this sixth edition of the series we dive into Boom Bap Beats & Bars that give us that 90s nostalgia feeling and head boppin’ groove.
Kicking straight into the beat, Madlib wastes no time with getting into the track. Teaming up with the abstract thoughtful rapper that is Declaime, who flows perfectly to the boom bap and thought provoking lyrics for the “Ill Minded.” Another classic release from Madlib, and one to add to his prolific catalogue that is a showcase for the talented individual.
AlienLoop recently popped up on my Discover Weekly playlist, so shout out to Spotify there as I could have dedicated this whole article to their oldschool flex. The simplicity of “Reminisce” reminds me of the oldshool hip-hop coming out of the States with it’s jazzy beat and fine piano that would sit finely in any jazz joint, rounding off with a fitting vocal sample for the nostalgic tune.
