Cookin Soul returns with his latest beat tape and tells about the creation: Last January my family and I went on a 2 week vacation to Curaçao, a beautiful island in the southern Caribbean Sea about 65 km (40 mi) north of Venezuela. We very much enjoyed our stay at the luxury penthouse we rented in the Jan Thiel Beach area; I had plenty of time to relax, but since I had my MPC Live with me… why not make an album there?
The Spanish producer is obviously not someone who can simply enjoy doing nothing during the holidays. Good for us, because this way we can enjoy these usual sample-heavy and mostly summery beats.
The amazing views, the crystal clear sea water, the variety of fishes and birds we saw like flamingos and trupials, really inspired me. This project is a collection of ideas and pieces I put together on this trip. Equiped with a folder of preloaded samples and some unfinished projects, I dove into the Caribbean vibe to get this album done on Curaçao… I made tracks inside the jacuzzi and at the pool, some while I was having breakfast on the terrace surrounded by nature, and even on the airplane on our way to the island…Make sure to enjoy this album just the same way I enjoyed making it; sipping on some cocktails at the beach, chilling in the swimming pool or lounging on a nice terrace or balcony… anywhere you can, just relax and enjoy!
“Caribbean Bites” can be pre-ordered here on vinyl.
