London producer Charles The Kid releases his sophomore beat tape, Hip-Hop High Life; a six-track collection “designed to inspire innovators, dreamers and thinkers.”
After releasing the ambient ‘Ambiguous & High’ earlier in the month, Charles The Kid ‘s unveils HHHL, a mellow, spacey take on Hip Hop production which is largely inspired by the likes of The Neptunes and Jet Life [Curren$y’s label].
The follow-up to the Earmilk-featured FLTOR Vol. 1 is an expression of his ‘jigsaw’ approach to music-making. HHHL was created over a three or four year period: “I tend to work very freely. When the urge takes me, I create.”
HHHL represents a departure from the sample-based style of FTLOR Vol. 1 for the London beatmaker. Every sound, from piano to bells to pads to flutes, is custom-made in order to convey the dichotomy between Charles’ desire to succeed as well as to retreat into his own creative space.
