It’s safe to say that 2011 is the year of the based instrumental movement. Clams Casino exploded onto the scene with the poignant and emotive Instrumentals that has yet to sound remotely tired given how much I’ve listened to it. Clams might be the poster boy for the genre, but fellow beat junkie Keyboard Kid has done pretty well for himself too. Here we get a new offering, The Mind Is So Complex When Your Based. It doesn’t have the instant classic feeling that the Clams instrumentals had, but can you deny a solid release for less than the price of your morning coffee? If the answer is no, well, you can still stream it for free.
