The 22-year old beatmaker from Birmingham, UK, created a mixtape for clothing store PROVIDE. With the seven track deep ‘On Another Planet‘ Mixtape, Kouben brings a dynamic tape full of surprises. Each beat is layered with different synths, drums and samples that combined make up a propelling soundscape. The mixtape will be released digital and on cassette. The A-side will feature the seven tracks and an exclusive minimix. The B-side of the cassette will be blank, as an invitation for people to record their own mixes to the cassette. Have a listen and find inspiration for your own creation.
This is an old release from about 10 months ago and you might already be familiar with it, but it’s so good we want to share it with you. We have the feeling that Kouben takes us back to that ambient hip hop sound that was so fruitful a few years ago. But he also knows to blend in some fast percussions and creates his own sound. We love it. He serves you a sound that feels reassuring and hopeful. Just have a listen.
