V4YS Ep Review - Mecca:83 - D A Y B R E A K (Solar Sounds Music)

Manchester-based producer Mecca:83 has a real talent for designing underground instrumental hip-hop with a soulful edge.

His Life Sketches EP's, released last year on his own label Solar Sounds, are remarkable bridges between "Jay-Dillesque" jazzy beats and futuristic sounds reminiscent of the current Californian abstract beats scene (think Flying-Lotus and all).
His other project, Rise, and its associated 2011 LP Messages on Futuristica Music, is a beautiful soothing trip blending shades of spiritual jazz with deep handcrafted beats.

Mecca:83 is now back on Solar Sounds Music with D A Y B R E A K, a new EP he wrote during a 24h-long beatmaking session with his inseparable friends : his laptop, his Akai MPC and a bunch of great old-school records, source of the multiple samples he keeps digging out.
A perfect summary of his artistic approach, this new EP blends groovy rythmic frames with warm sound textures where you'll enjoy wrapping and losing yourself, surrended by a myriad of beautiful keyboards/piano melodies and funky instrumental and vocal samples.

Check it out by yourself with the streaming below taken from his label's bancamp page where you'll also find his previous productions.
