About this item
LOUIE is the debut album from Kenny Beats, best known for producing seminal albums for some of the world’s most exciting artists (including Vince Staples, IDLES, Rico Nasty and Denzel Curry). On LOUIE Kenny subverts expectations with an almost entirely instrumental artist record, looping obscure 70s soul, lo-fi snippets of his fathers voice, along with guest 'vocals' from the likes of Jpegmafai and Slowthai over woozy beats. The cut'n'paste, sample heavy vibe brings to mind the likes of DJ Shadow and Avalanches in an LP that acts as a deeply personal tribute to his father.
Matt says: Really nice cut-n-paste, (mainly) instrumental LP from this relatively new studio wizard who's already turned heads working with some fantastic high profile artists.
