[MP3] Take – Incredibright

We’ve been waiting for this one for a long time here at Rhythm Inc towers. Take aka Sweatson Klank aka one of the pivotal pioneers of the L.A beat scene is releasing his second full length album next month. Dropping April 20th on the Alpha Pup label, ‘Only Mountain’ comes nearly 3 years after ‘Earthtones and Concrete’, an album I was introduced to by Om Unit and Waxfactor and which totally changed the way I viewed beats and eletronic minded hip hop. Which explains the aforementioned anticipation for this new album.

Coming on the heels of a series of EPs and remixes for labels like Eat Concrete, Friends of Friends and All City Records, ‘Only Mountain’ is a departure from the last album much more inline with his recent ‘sound’ which started appearing on his Eat Concrete EP back in 08 and was then further refined in his remix of Architeq’s ‘Sleeping Bear Laments’ or the three tracks he recently dropped on All City’s L.A 10×10 series. While different from his earlier work the music retains the same quality and composition that made it stand out from the rest in the past. This isn’t more beats by numbers, this is some incredible music by one of the unsung pioneers of the genre (if you will).

The lovely people at Alpha Pup are letting us post a taster from the album for you to stream/download in the shape of ‘Incredibright’. Also below some official words from the label:

Alpha Pup is proud to present Only Mountain, the newest release from L.A.-based beat producer Take. His most powerful and fully realized work to date, Only Mountain serves as a complete affirmation of Take’s ten prolific years in music production.

A dense and groundbreaking work, Take’s Only Mountain stands as a staggering collection of gorgeously brilliant melodies and deep subharmonic bass. Truly future music towards a brighter end.

Full tracklist for the album is below as is the download and stream links for ‘Incredibright’. Album drops April 20 on Alpha Pup label, digital and I think they have vinyl coming soon too. Here more from Take in our previous shows, browse all shows featuring him here.
