Genre:Hip Hop
In a genre where the most pivotal and defining moments occurred
over 2 decades ago according to popular to consensus, few artists
have managed to consistently achieve excellence and visibly
contribute from the early 90’s to present day 2000’s. With regime
changes, trend cycles, and technological advancements, producer
K-Def is in a class of “rare breed” artists that pridefully embody the
title veteran. So much can be said about what he has accomplished
throughout his 20 plus year career, but specifically in 2015, K’s output
and quality have stayed atop the conversation. Building a foundation
at Redefinition Records, who adopted the catchphrase “Quality Over
Quantity”, is not a question of how much, but rather how good.
For the label, K-Def is an exception. His latest offering entitled “The
Unpredictable Gemini” (1 of 2 new albums released simultaneously),
is a fully instrumental opus into the mind and soul of one of hip
hop’s greatest producers. The Unpredictable Gemini showcases
his evolving style and genre pioneering tricks and techniques he
continues to refine through the use of his unique production tools.
Keeping this project very close to heart and classified from the
public over the last 3 years, K meticulously produced, composed,
arranged, mixed and mastered well over 100 tracks before making
executive decisions on this album he wants the world to hear.
Speaking on the album, K-Def made the following statement: “I want
you to know that the sounds on this album display some of my true
inner feelings about music & life. With the advancement of technology
and my knowledge of using all kinds of recording equipment dating
back to the late 80’s, I present to you the unpredictable Gemini.

K-Def - In The Moment Electric Blue Vinyl Edition
K-Def
In The Moment Electric Blue Vinyl Edition
LP | 2017 | US | Original (Redefinition)
25,99 €*
Release:2017 / US – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
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.”
