First Listen

KeyBoardKid206 "Secret Forest .. (Tree Music)"

After LA producer Julian Wass sampled music from the Xenogears video game for Main Attraktionz's and Danny Brown's "Cloud Skatin" track, he was inspired to put together a hip-hop tribute to honor Yasunori Mitsuda, the genius composer behind the music of classic RPGs Chrono Trigger, Shadow Hearts, and the aforementioned title. The result is MITSUDA, a 22-track album featuring sample-driven cuts from the likes of Ryan Hemsworth and Seattle's KeyBoardKid206, among others. From the latter producer, we have "Secret Forest .. (Tree Music)," a tune built on the hypnotic swirl of looped blips and bloops, anchored by a ticking hip-hop beat, and topped off with an extra layer of sparse synth melodies.
