London Producer Al Dobson Jr. Issues Blunted Beat "Kirton Street"

FADER PREMIERE

London producer Al Dobson Jr. has issued only a precious few tracks since his November 2013 debut single on 22a, but he's already carving out a pretty unique corner in the realm of jazzy, subdued post-Dilla beat-making. His mini-LP Rye Lane Vol. 1 was an all-too-brief collage of soul samples, burbling bass-lines, and slowly clattering drum hits, and now he's set to follow up that January release with a new remix collection for Rhythm Section International called Rye Versions. On the B-side is "Kirton Street," a minuscule melange of chirping guitar samples and chopped soul vocals that cement a connection to the blunted producers of the annals of hip-hop. It doesn't even break the one minute mark, but the that's still enough space for Dobson to get your head bobbing. Listen below alongside the previously released Ptaki remix of A-side "Santiago Black."
