a day in the city

great beats you should buy!

“A mellow – almost melancholy – vibe is carried throughout the album with each successive track emphasizing in its own way different aspects of this city’s downtempo vibe.” – netlabelism.comthe label’s 6th release brings instrumental hip hop vibes from the underground.
You can find this album on bandcamp, and also buy a CD with a photo I made on it. We also made a video a while ago. This album is another product of deeB, co-founder of phonophanatic.

The first rays of a new day reach over the horizon and stretch themselves across the trees, the roads, the houses, and finally the high-rises of a metropolis. A city awakens, and we awaken with it.

The new EP from Dutch artist Danny van den Hoek, a.k.a. deeB, tells us “the exciting story of [this] city and all its people.” It opens with a slowly strummed guitar, gently pressed piano keys, the tinkle of chimes, a subtle beat, and hints of turn-tablism. As the opener “Intro (feat. Noumenom)” gets underway, we sample more of what is to come, trumpets, trippy digital manipulations, and increasingly prominent drums.

 Make sure you check it out!
