Those born after ‘85 may not remember Presto Magix, but there couldn‘t be a more appropriate metaphor for Culver City producer Presto's new LP. Like those bygone rub-on transfer kits, Presto's tracks can be applied to myriad environments, fitting just as crisply on a hip-hop mixtape as they would at the winding down of an extended after-hours party. Known for his patient, jazz-tinged solo instrumentals, Presto recruits a solid squad of guests (Lowd, J Medeiros, and Raashan Ahmad among them), to bridge the old school with the new.
