Released back in April of this year, Edinburgh-based musician Daryl Donald comes through with an excellent project titled Solitude. The beat-tape features some great samples which are intelligently used to complement the smooth and soulful production Daryl is able to craft throughout the project.
“Tender” for examples features a sample from Pusha T’s “Numbers On The Board” which is interpolated with the ethereal sound of the instrumental. Other highlights to me include “Crown” which features a De La Soul sample from the track “Itzsoweezee (HOT),” and the final two tracks “Nothing” and “Solitude,” which close the album beautifully. This is an excellent release, a free flowing album that contains soul, funk and and so many smooth rhythms that place you in a meditative zone. A true joy to listen to.
