K-Def is back with his first offering for 2017; “In The Moment.” So much has been and can be said about K over 2 plus decades in the industry as one of hip-hop’s elite producers. What else is left? Well, honestly K is not stuck on the accolades of his past and he prefers to look at his art as “his best work is yet to come”, even after so many monumental career accomplishments. Recently, he was featured in Mass Appeal’s viral web series, Rhythm Roulette, to great appreciation from longtime fans and newfound acclaim reaching a younger audience previously unaware of his brand. Capitalizing on buzz, K realizes that mass abundance is never a bad thing as long as your product is good. So he continuously assembles project after project, adding new chapters to his legacy. A man of many tricks who guards his secrets, peers and record nerds are often dumbfounded by many of the techniques K-Def exhibits in his well-constructed tracks. Never one to shun new technology, many of his latest works show what can be done with sound when software and a complex mind meet. However, as advanced as K-Def evolves, he’s never abandoned his fundamental approaches to beat production no matter what tools he applies. He’d rather make room for both. With the invention of Akai’s MPC Renaissance, as advertised, it put K in a tactile headspace of hardware before the software it controls. Why stop there when K had bags of diskettes he accumulated from his work on the classic MPC 60ii and the MPC 3000? The nostalgic process inspired K to incorporate all this weapons to make timeless current day music regardless of perceived limitations. Creatives often refer to their optimal stride in coined terms like ”The Magic Hour” or ”In The Zone”. Using all the tools and experience at his disposal (mainly MPC’s), K captured his stride documented in these generous 23 tracks. When asked about the album’s background and composition, he said simply, (he) “was in the moment”. It resonated and there you have it. K-Def’s new LP is titled “In the Moment” so you’re “in luck” if you’re “in the know.”

When you’ve been in an industry for over 20 years, adaptation andevolution are key functions in any field. If you’re Kevin Hansfordaka K-Def, you’ve seen good, you’ve seen bad, you’ve seen changeand on occasion, you’ve seen history repeat itself. For some artists,staying true and being innovative can be a fine line and a struggle.On one hand, a reputation is built from birth creating a connectionthat should always be maintained. On the other hand, growth orlack of growth will occur whether change is embraced. A producerlike K-Def would not still exist today in 2016 without being aware ofthose survival tactics. In a society dictated by technology, it’s hardto imagine the world as we know it without the devices and digitalplatforms we entertain unconsciously.As he continues to push himself, more recently K was inspired totrack down all of his original 90’s gear and works dating prior to hissoftware transition after a recent resurgence of old machines fromthe younger generation. That meant pulling out 2 full trash bags offloppy disks, revitalizing his old MPC 3000 to new condition, dustingoff rack sampler modules and hunting down his MPC 60ii whichwas the first machine he used debuting in 1993 under Marley Marl.Going through that process brings us K-def’s new album, The WayIt Was. The title sums it up. Instead talking about dues he paid andthe roots of his skill set, The Way it Was is a living demonstration foryounger listeners who grew up after the 90’s and his core fans whoremember the days of his Lords of the Underground, Real Live, MicGeronimo and World Renown productions like yesterday. Thoughmostly instrumental, frequent collaborator Blu appears on 3 tracks.Blu was inspired to record the socially aware, “The Boys” and thelively “Strawberry Lemonade” (featuring Damu the Fudgemunk andnewcomer Kunal) after hearing K-Def’s original demo cassettes. At11 tracks, “The Way It Was” is a must have for 90’s fans. It IS exactly“what it was”.

Fresh off the success of his “One Man Band” album, legendary hip-hop producer K-Def is back in record time with another quality release called The Exhibit. This time, the New Jersey native included 11 instrumental arrangements alongside two vocal cuts that feature MCs Blu, Quartermaine (Kev Brown, Low Budget Records) and Seven Shawn (of World Renown). Listening to The Exhibit is sorta like walking through an art gallery or museum; some of what you hear might be open to interpretation while other pieces may or may not be exactly what they seem at first glance. The Exhibit is not a concept album and does not have a running theme throughout, instead it's simply a collection of great art that further solidifies K-Def's reputation as an expert audio engineer and an exciting producer/arranger.
