ARXFREE001 - Items - Archives EP

by Items



Items is a mysterious producer who sent us two brilliant demos a few months ago. Both were absolutely brilliant.

This one is the first batch we received, containing selected tracks made between 2010 and 2011. Some of you may be really surprised to hear Hip Hop oriented music on the label, but we really love this sound Items was in too at the time, with reminiscences of the visionary Prefuse73 and the excitement created by the beatmakers and mad scientists who created "glitch" and "wonky" Hip Hop.

The 7 tracker you can listen and download is a really nice journey in space, galaxies and foreign territories, with real feelings made music and more than standard arranging skills. We have been amazed by the number of ideas this guy is able to put in one single track. We let you judge wether we were right or not.

The second batch of the demo we received will be released on November and will be totally different in terms of tempo and ambience. It will probably fit more into what we "use" to release, even if we keep thinking tempo isn't the key to our decisions as far as artistic choices are to be done. Expect really amazing tracks from him, as you may consider this "Archives EP" as the beginning of the Items story.

Items doesn't want to play the social media game, he thinks music is the only thing that matters, so he wanted to offer this to you, so that you can get into his universe before his first distributed release in November.

That's also why we can't tell you to follow him on Twitter, or any other platform than Soundcloud : !tems

Enjoy the Music.
