Boomkat Product Review:
Welcome to the world of ascendent, London-based beat builder Drae Da Skimask '95 with the heavy stoned tone of 'Mindfulness'. So named after the year of his birth, at the age of 19, Drae Da Skimask '95 is already well established with UK & US hip hop fraternities via production for Piff Gang, Jesse James Solomon and Onoe Caponoe. Yet the 11-part 'Mindfulness' is his first widely available batch of instrumentals beyond his soundcloud, establishing a low-key, soft-lit and slow-mo style operating in the mists beyond American producers such as Clams Casino or Main Attrakionz, and the smoked-out UK styles of label-mates Jaisu and Inkke. It's totally primed for cars with bassy speakers and lazy days in the sun.
