JAPAN intelligenti pauca

This one is for all my japanese people out there!

I remember i told y'all about my man "PHOHAT" a while ago.
Well, the instrumental lp "intelligenti pauca" is out now and available in Japan.
feat. beats by DA G.U.I
all cutz by blaze/CSA

This special japanese version got 2 phat bonus tracks that you can't find on the european release (which is also coming soon for next week).

get it at your local HMV , tower records ..
peace to refine recordings,

personal review:
First time i heard his beats back then, i was really diggin'them. I was also impressed by the sound quality and the warm bass he always had on his tracks. I remember when i first met the guy in his basement(RIP), saw them crazy machines he was working with and realised he was also a sound engineer.. (Oh that's why he had that dope sound!! lol
that 31 years old beatmaker(sound engineer and more..) is inspired by hiphop,jazz, soul, funk, afro beat, broken soul, electro house..
The album shows this large diversity of music that some b-boy from the ghetto can actually produce. You might be surprised. You got different kind of beats, so don't expect just straight boom bap hip hop beats, it's music. I'd say "electro urban" beats. Like it or not, it still has some dope ass hits in it!
The tracks has their own atmosphere, it's full of imagery and this is for what it was made for. You really need to visualize it sometimes, it should be the background sound of some video formats i think. i'd say it's also something you can play in the back, while chillin'or doing something else.
Also, it was made a bit like that "prince paul" project, you know the guy's playing his little movie in his head and then try to put sound on it.
I believe he has his own touch, i don't know there's something special ,you can feel it.
Professional must pay attention here!! And real music lovers should hear it..
So now it's your choice if you want to discover his atmosphere, or not..

"intelligenti pauca" means in latin : " few words suffice for he who understands

peace to the ones who know.

It's too bad you didn't like his music, but i don't agree with you when you say this is Dilla style biting. I think Phohat has his own thing and his own sound.
Anyway everytime someone makes good music there is some people to say that they sound like Jay Dee or Madlib

lol....calling my opinion hate is hate... you're out of touch if you think dudes beats are fresh... giving honest feedback is love... and Dilla was wack when he was biting himself and recycling that pop style of his... he was great when he created fresh brand new funk, which was like one out of every 20 songs or so... Madlib is wack when he biting Dilla, dope when he does Madlib... Biting is not Hiphop...
