mtbrd - Just VisitingLABEL: COLD BUSTED
Prolifically crafting beats from the UK, mtbrd is the latest artist to tackle Cold Busted's high-flying Jet Set series. With his self-released singles and albums — including last year's coffee-flavored Damn Fine — mtbrd has attracted a large following of downtempo-minded fans awaiting his latest beat-scapes. Just Visiting, his 4-song Jet Set installment is just the ticket. mtbrd's soulful rhythm constructions and cut-up loops make the EP a top-flight addition to his growing discography. The title track opens Just Visiting with a bang — heavy boom-bap beats, cleverly assembled vocal hits, and its dramatic change-ups give the cut an irresistible velocity. "So Long" carries its 9 soulful vibe through shimmering electric piano, short guitar riff splashes, and a crackling snare drum. Next is "Ti Amo" with its cinematic flair, assisted by big drums, a pulsing low end, and evocative string phrases. "Lost In Translation" ends the journey, laying out chiming guitar chords, driving hand percussion, and infectious vocal melodies.
