Almost two years have passed since Leavv released the highly successful album “Mind Garden” via Chillhop. Since then only a few singles and compilation contributions followed. Now the German producer has teamed up with the Norwegian Hazy Year for the album “Sediments”.
Whoever has expected relaxed Chillhop beats with Lofi influences will probably be surprised. Although the 14 tracks are quite laid back, they’re clearly rooted in Boom Bap with crisp drums, vocal cuts and jazzy samples.
They deliberately go against the trend and prefer to pay homage to masters like Dilla rather than the popular Lofi playlists.
