Prolific producer/instrumentalist Evil Needle delivers a solid instrumental project titled Sound Escapes. A 5 track body of work that is influenced and inspired by the warmest season in the year.
The project opens up with the warm and nostalgic vibes of “Cruising” which sets the mood for the rest of the instrumentals. From the laidback relaxing textures, soft drums, and somber keys it moves into “low rider.” The instrumental is a perfect soundtrack to just ride around with, it’s relaxing, and each instrument flourishes as it progresses. “Vintage” goes for the 90s boom bap jazz aesthetic and it delivers on every count. The instrumentation here is splendid and the lush textures, warm pulsating drums, and swirling pads merge perfectly with the crunchy drums.
Overall the project stays focused on the summer theme and it is very cohesive from start to finish.
