At long last, we return with another edition in our ongoing WKND BEATS series of beat CDâ€™s & instrumental albums.
For our 11th installment, returning champ, TOPE (of both TxE and Living Proof) follows up on last yearâ€™s highlight, FREELEMONADE with a fresh batch of NEWKICKS.
Just as he did on FREELEM, the PRTLND producer again offers up another solid collection of for-sale instrumentals made out of mostly old soul records (& this time around â€“ some contemporaries as well).
Except, here on NEWKICKS, TOPE re-emerges a noticeably more seasoned producer, apparently learning a lot in just the year since, w/ sharpened chops & new techniques heard without making for an even more enjoyable listen than the previous crowd favorite.
