From the opening seconds of his new track “Astro” you can tell that Audible Doctor was heavily influenced by J Dilla. The broken soul sample with the heavy bassline is all too familiar. But hey, Dilla was a disciple of Q-Tip, who was a disciple of a number of 80’s Hip-Hop DJ’s. And it’s better to try and replicate someone as great as Dilla, than Swizz Beats for example. This type of instrumental, electronica-inspired Hip Hop is not the easiest to find, so when I caught wind of this guy, I was immediately smitten. Not all his tracks are instrumentals. He has produced songs for rappers like Consequence and has a whole album of Outkast Remixes, and all this is available to download for FREE on his website. So if this song tickles your fancy, be sure to grab up his other stuff on his site.
