Gonza is a beatmaker who currently resides in Stockholm, Sweden. Signed to one of my personal favourite record labels and communities NINETOFIVE, Extras is Gonza’s fourth release on the label, and it includes some of the best hip-hop production I’ve heard in a while. With 23 songs spanning 46 minutes, Gonza finds his groove on this tape with some exquisite beats which highlight his incredible talents as a producer.
Most of the tracks on this tape are smooth, soulful boom-bap beats that have a gorgeous, warm feel to them. They are perfectly sequenced to allow for a fluid, captivating listen that keep me inspired to write and create. Tracks like “Represent,” “Tomorrow” and “Searchin’ (Again)” are amongst my favourite tracks on the album with incredible looped samples and hard hitting drums that just pound away. So yeah, this album slaps in every sense of the word.
