L'Orange - The Mad Writer (2013)

I am a sucker for instrumental Hip-Hop, especially the soulful end of the spectrum. I wrote a short bit about the Berlin based group's previous record which sampled heavily from Billie Holiday records, and their most recent record is well within that vein. While this record doesn't have a single vocalist to root the project's attention, the sound and flow of the record is reminiscent of their past work. Multiple MCs are brought in to help realize the highly cut-together samples and rhythms, making this an excellent example of how the past and present can co-habitat a space politely.
