Producer Big O returns to AAHH The Light Of Day, a super soulful new EP that’s light on filler and heavy on bassy compositions that seamlessly soundtrack any windows-down nighttime drive through your town.
Originally from Alabama, he spent time in Florida and LA before transplanting himself to the UK — where he currently resides. None of the backdrops he’s experienced, which to be clear all have their distinct scenes/sounds, seem to overpower the others. Instead, they meld and at times feel like a mash-up of the late Dilla soaked in sonic elements you may expect to find on the MPC of a producer like Hi-Tek.
For good measure, the EP does have two complete songs; “SoulScape” featuring P-Rawb is a decent match-up, with Rob using the airy boom-bap chops to drop a barrage of conscious bars. Q-Shinobi joins the producer to rock the iconic drum loop of Tom Scott and The L.A. Express’s “Sneakin’” on “Moments Of Life.” Both song also appears in instrumental version (if you just want to keep the vocal-less vibe going).
If you’re looking for a decent soundtrack to your city movements this week, give The Light Of Day a spin!
