Beat Tape to Peep: "Young" from Asend
Updated: Feb 16
Asend's new tape weaves dreamily between the melancholy and the triumphantly life affirming in his signature fashion.
I love that he gave us another tape with lots of boom-bap on it; he's given us some before and he's given us more styles since and it just feels generous that he came back to this paradigm he's so masterful at to bless the world.
The first song on the taper gives you the vibe, "Perfect Spot" is hypnotic, clean. My favorite song on the tape is "Heaven" and the name fits. Knock this ASAP.
