1. Product Details

Vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release. Es-K Essential Knowledge was born in Holland raised in Kansas City Missouri and currently lives in Burlington Vermont. He started seriously making beats as a teenager with his first release coming out on the Cold Busted label in 2011. Es-K is also known for his monthly Spontaneous Grooves releases where a set of instrumental tracks are created in one sitting the result being truly spontaneous and diverse. This exemplifies Es-Ks prolific and workman-like ethos of beat-making with creative and top notch hip hop soundscapes constantly pouring out of his Vermont studio. Passages is Es-Ks 2016 release for Cold Busted and it shows his growth as a rhythm-obsessed music producer. With guitar and occasional keys by friend Max Bronstein-Paritz and a couple of crucial studio collaborations with fellow Vermont beat-maker Loupo Passages adds extra depth and musicality to Es-Ks drum mechanics. The album opens wistfully with IEV offering a minute and a half of instrument textures and snatches of percussion before the full beat kicks in. Monastic showcases Maxs funky guitar contribution Elevation features some deep bass line play and Mistakes Made is filled with melodic layers and melancholic moods. These are just some of the highlights from this twelve track album... Es-K satisfyingly goes beyond the beats throughout.
