The sophomore full-length from the Oak Cliff born and bred producer K.D. Tha Produce Man finds him springing the Real OC to life through a collection of tracks that span the breadth of his capabilities as a beatsmith.
With a finely-tuned ear and a perpetual penchant for dark, brooding, ethereal music scapes, he revisits his early years spent with The Kid Flames honing their crafts on the pitch black “626 White” while dicing up slinky bass, vox, and his signature bounce-driven drum programming on the impossibly smooth “Lifeblood”. And who could forget the two previously released tone-setters “Bench Seats” and “Coast Down Cedarhurst”? In a timely ode to J Dilla – and by default, in honor of De La Soul and Trugoy the Dove’s life – he reimagines LTD’s “Love Ballad” on the uplifting closer “Waaay More”.
All of this culminates in a tightly-conceived, critically curated and beautiful 10-track body of work that must be experienced beginning to end.
Enjoy the views.
