Our feature album this week is from Sydney producer Paisley with their latest album ‘Tokyo Real Estate, Vol. 1’.
Since 2014, Sydney producer Paisley has been releasing a series of ‘beat-tapes’ on Soundcloud and Bandcamp. Songs like Yozakura / Mellow Mood / One Two and Wifi Emoji have reached up to 70K plays on streaming services, and have been very well-received by users online.
‘Tokyo Real Estate, Vol. 1’ marks the seventh ‘beat-tape’ released by Paisley. The record is full of gentle melodic pianos, sampled vocal chops, groovy bass-lines, and exceptional beat play. It is also, more than anything, very nostalgic. Taking many influences from classic hip-hop, 80’s funk, and old-time jazz, the album feels like an ode to the past; a time where things were slow, peaceful and simple.
Featured Tracks: Elevator Song, Redfern Park, Respect, Birds in My Room, 2ldk, Hyde Park 2pm, and Umbrella.
