Hungarian producer Àbáse comes through with a brand new EP titled Elevate. Following the release of this year’s excellent album Invocation, the talented artist has released a new project that differs sonically from his previous record. More neo-soul inspired, there is more emphasis on live instrumentation and thumping beats that capture a raw aesthetic.
Just 4 tracks in length, Àbáse has been able to bring contributions from the likes of Jessie Davis & SoulClap Budapest, Call Me Unique, Emmavie and ScienZe. On “Elevate,” the beat is infectious, with vocal contributions, wind instrumentation and a thumping beat that brings tremendous amount of soul to the track. The “yes yes y’all and you don’t stop” sample brings such a fantastic hip-hop mood throughout. The percussion and intricate guitars throughout “Too Close” are fantastic, while “Slow It Down” has an amazing verse from ScienZe and a fantastic beat. “Crossroads” has more live instrumentation and a moody, reflective tone that’s just beautiful and makes it a perfect way to close this project. Overall, Àbáse excels again at releasing a cohesive and intricate project, showing not only his levels of consistency, but also his talents a musician to create diverse music.
