LISTEN: Deadpanned – “no lvls” EP

That feel when you stumble on something that so perfectly captures your mood, that’s where I’m at right now. Playing catch up, I’m motivated to get things done, but I’m also in a pretty mild mood, just recovering from a busy weekend and looking forward to some down time this week. Deadpanned is exactly what cures my ails today, in a way that I had no idea I even needed. The music here is fluid and has a dope flow, but with a smooth jazzed out vibe that makes it easy listening in all the right ways. There are layers here of synth and horn or vibraphone samples that are picture perfect, a blend of Digable Planets, Charles Mingus, and Tycho in one neat package. These are just cool jams, beats that weave in and out of instrumental narratives to include odd spoken samples, and back into something fresh; I cant help but nod my head along.

Listen below and grind, but know that it’s going to be the most mellow grind in human history.
