ANTE – “Remedy’s Garden”
Bentonville, Arkansas raised ANTE starts off this weekend list with his brand of smooth, alluring instrumentation. Aptly titled “Remedy’s Garden,” the eclectic producer layers a myriad of lush sounds that exude a tranquil vibe and somewhat uplifting emotion as well.
AdimProd – “Adim’s Lament”
UK based Afro-House, Hip-Hop and Lo-Fi producer who goes by the moniker AdimProd makes his debut on our list with a vocal sample infused beat he calls “Adim’s Lament”. He keeps it pretty mellow with the drums that come in later and peppers them with a soft string to match.
JAKSPIN – “Aquarius”
JAKSPIN keeps the momentum going with this sublime piece he calls “Aquarius”. Just like the aquatic star he names it after, the beat has a calm soothing vibe and is a sure shot once you hit the play button. “Aquarius” is the follow up to his previous single “Taurus”
The Ginga – “Atatakai Ame”
“Atatakai Me” is an interesting beat by emerging producer The Ginga. The solemn textures and soft synths sure make for a solid listen from start to finish. The beat was made from scratch on his Akai midi controller in his bedroom studio.
Get it on Deezer.
Daddy Who – “Drunken”
Daddy Who comes through with an oddball type production titled “Drunken.” he goes for that off-kilter vibe reminiscent of Dilla and Madlib. He uses soft lo-fi sounds, mellow drums and occasionally throws in a Rozay vocal sample for the fun of it. “Drunken” from his album “Who is Who”, which will be released on February 14th. Get it on Bandcamp and Deezer and all DSPs

Onfeets is a producer/DJ/guitarist who shares his new beat titled “4 Me” with us. He flips a classic Isaac Hayes sample and adds his own unique ethereal sounds to the mix. This is pretty solid from start to finish.
Big O – “Time 2 Say Goodbye (Outro)”
It’s never a dull moment whenever Big O hits us up. On his new beat titled “Time 2 Say goodbye (Outro)” he taps into our souls with his solemn and nostalgia-inducing production. A solid way to say goodbye.
