Good vibes last night. Let’s wash the house music from our system. Here’s some wonky beat stuff from L.A. Yogiloops has quite a prolific posting habbit on Soundcloud, this jazzy joint from 2 weeks ago gets the head nodding.

There could not be a more self-explanatory release than this. A label called Beat Club releasing a beat tape called Chill City (beat tape) by a guy named laGroove. It’s chill beats. Peep.

Yogi – Afterglow by Chris

Jazzy beatstrumentals as their best. Yogi‘s Afterglow earns the BRILLIANT category. Check out the full yogi release, listen, and it can’t be heard here.

Knowsum has 37 beats up for €1 on Bandcamp- kinda makes every other fiscally responsible move you’ve ever made look silly in comparison.

I’ve suddenly found myself jumping head-first back into that jazzy brand of trip-hop which I love so much; Hubert Daviz dropped this smooth remix of Grand Puba‘s A Little of This around a year ago and I’m digging it.

This suave jazz record makes me want to don a sleek suit and fedora combo, go out- order a scotch rocks and eye beautiful women across the bar while leaning on a billiards cue.

Yeah, it’s that specific.

The whole album is out for free here. You can also order physical CD and stream the album on the band-camp page linked below.

JONGPADAWAN – Afternoon Croissant by Chris

A delightful trip-hop/future-beat style track from Denmark’s JONGPADAWAN. I’m not sure I’ve ever posted a Danish artist on FTR before, however if Afternoon Croissant is any indication of the quality of music coming from the Danes- I’ll be looking there more often.

A nice mix of smooth jazz and deep percussive elements, heavy compression is any trip-hopper’s friend, and JONGPADAWAN has executed his production techniques very well. The track avoids being a tedious sample loop by gradually switching up the beats, switching in and out different instrumental elements (a smooth tenor sax dips in and out as the beat goes on) and a suave French vocal sample keeps things sexy.

A debut EP is on the horizon with Greased Up Records announcing their first public EP release will be with him- release date TBA. Until then, enjoy Afternoon Croissant.
