It’s impossible to listen to “Just Diggin With Amiri,” the latest beat tape by HiPNOTT producer Amiri, without nodding your head and smiling.
The eclectic, jazzy instrumentals are laid over snares sets and catchy synths, sampling everything from elevator music-esque brass in “Smiling” to simple keyboard riffs in “Cruise.”
Pared-down production and a soulful feel seem to balance between classic ATCQ and what you would hear after hours at your favorite jazz bar.
Whether to start your day off on the right foot, or to relax after a stressful time at work, “Just Diggin With Amiri” provides some majorly fun mood music.
As Amiri says, “I’m here to bring the feel good back to hip hop.”
