More 14KT than Flying Lotus, Leonard Dstroy has offered up what has turned out to be the best “freebie” of the past week. Comprised of 15 cuts of instrumental bliss, a card-carrying member of the INnate Sounds crew, Dstroy laced “Higher Vibrations” so eloquently, yet it packs enough “umph” for the hardcore beat fanatics. To be very blunt, if you asked me which I’d prefer, “Higher Vibrations” or Flying Lotus’ recently released “Cosmogramma”, I wouldn’t think twice about giving the nod to Dstroy. To take it even one step beyond, “Higher Vibrations” or 14KT’s “The Golden Hour”? Now that’s pushin’ it….
And while you’re at it, also available via Dstroy’s BandCamp is his collaborative project with emcee Kutty Slitz, “The Lenny Slitz Project”, which I haven’t had the opportunity to digest just yet, being that I can’ seem to get “Higher Vibrations” and namely the track “Last Lullabye” outta’ my headphones. Damn, it’s always a great feeling when albums like this, that you just stuble upon Thursday evening, always seem to provide the soundtrack for the weekend ahead.
Get ‘em both HERE.
