I met Enca a few days ago for some beers and interesting conversations. Of course he also asked me if I would do a post about his project with CMD. I wasn’t sure at first, because “Smooth Drops” is quite different from what you can find normally here on Beat Lover.
But in the end I thought that a little variety wouldn’t hurt. The seven songs of “Smooth Drops” range somewhere between Trip Hop, Downbeat, Instrumental HipHop and Café del Mar. Enca himself simply calls it fusion. If your holidays are coming up, this is certainly not the worst sound for your beach playlist.
What I find interesting is that Enca produces practically all of his beats on the Maschine App on his mobile phone and only the finishing touches are done in the studio.
