Charles The Kid – ‘Hip-Hop High Life’ @CharlesTheKidVI

London producer Charles The Kid releases his sophomore beat tape, ‘Hip-Hop High Life’; a six-track collection “designed to inspire innovators, dreamers and thinkers.”

After releasing the ambient ‘Ambiguous & High‘ earlier in the month, Charles The Kid ‘s unveils ‘HHHL‘, a mellow, spacey take on Hip Hop production which is largely inspired by the likes of The Neptunes and Jet Life [Curren$y‘s label].

The follow-up to the Earmilk-featured ‘FLTOR Vol. 1‘ is an expression of his ‘jigsaw’ approach to music-making. ‘HHHL‘ was created over a three or four year period: “I tend to work very freely. When the urge takes me, I create”.

HHHL‘ represents a departure from the sample-based style of ‘FTLOR Vol. 1′ for the London beatmaker. Every sound, from piano to bells to pads to flutes, is custom-made in order to convey the dichotomy between Charles’ desire to succeed as well as to retreat into his own creative space.
