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
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.
