The whole lo-fi scene has kind of irked me since its inception, mostly because I’m just a hater sometimes and find a stupid reason to detest any kind of movement. But every so often there are some gems that emerge from this re-visited sound. And here we have one of them, again thanks to Ross (aka Datahowler). We might be a bit late in posting this — it dropped in late August — but hey, we can’t be on top of everything. My rambling aside, here we have a free digital 7″ from producer Monster Rally, who produces music akin to the lo-fi madness created by Madlib. But where it’s different is that there is a definite surfer edge to it. If I became more of a beach-head (again), I’d probably have this on repeat as the sun hit my face and swift breeze cooled me off. For now, though, I’ll enjoy it with some drinks.
Stream the track “Champagne” below and download the EP after the jump.
