Canadian lo-fi hip hop producer, and SoundCloud darling bsd.u has released his long awaited LP, pook, which is out now via Inner Ocean Records. pook takes the listener on an woozy, eerie ride. Ghostly Rhodes samples chime through a layer of lo-fi haze. Drums crunch and snap with dirt and fuzz… but it all sounds so pleasing. The grit and roughness to the sonic texture of the music comes as the biggest departure from bsd.u’s past efforts, but is a welcome shift to these ears. His work on his popular [late night bumps] series is nice, but sometimes it’s just a little too nice. His sound gets more textured on his lighter project, but pook takes that to another level. Here the music has more character, and a more sophisticated sound overall. A nice step up from an already quality beat maker! Melancholy, lo-fi sample beats for grey, or rainy days. Highly recommended.
Stream pook below. Snag a download, limited cassette, or vinyl LP via the Inner Ocean Bandcamp or webstore.
The prolific and mysterious bsd.u from Vancouver Island follows up his highly acclaimed “lighter” tape on Inner Ocean with 21 brand new lofi gems on his new record “pook”! This release delivers every ounce of that low key, lofi hiphop sound that you know and love from the ultra talented bsd.u. Pook is that feeling you get when the party is winding down, but the groove won’t let up.
A long time in the making, we are proud to present Pook on both Vinyl and Tape Cassette.
