We hate to admit it.. but it’s been weeks since we threw up a Knock of The Day. Traveling up and down the West Coast preparing the release of JT‘s next single has us exhausted. But whenever the homie Vandelux delivers new content premiered with the fam over at Never Radio, you know we’re whipping up a post on WordPress.
Thus far Luxembourg based producer / instrumentalist Vandelux has made a name for himself heavily off remixes. Just yesterday though he took a page out of the Wild Wild West, dropping off an original blues-style beat that has us feeling like throwin’ back some moonshine and lightin’ up a few Marlboros. Featuring a guitar riff recorded on a beautiful old acoustic found at a thrift shop while in Vancouver, and sampling some 1950’s Mississippi state school board educational video, “Stimulus” is more than just an antique aural groove — it’s an arranged narrative that speaks to the evolution of hip-hop.
