Amoeba Sound Design: Music for the Sake of Music [Review]
Vancouver, B.C. – BC natives Amoeba Sound Design’s newest album Music for the Sake of Music provides listeners with dope new and old-school hip-hop vibes. Jazz, funk and soul samples can be heard throughout the album; the beats flow nicely yet stay fresh and original with smooth and intrinsic raps overlaying the rough, slow, and fast variation of beats.
The album consists of one-word titles, from “Jump,” “Move,” and “Freezie,” which automatically raise the question as to what exactly is behind these titles. Although it wouldn’t be music that someone could jam out to on the radio, it definitely is unique. It sounds very Canadian – the music just not only represents the fun and laid-back Vancouver lifestyle, but the use of random string instruments and percussion give it that Canadian-esque feel.Definitely not hood music.
Some of the songs are so fasts that it’s easy to miss one or two sentences of what is being said but besides that, this is a good look for local music producers and artists. Vancouver has a growing hip-hop community, and Amoeba Sound Design definitely make a positive contribution. Essentially, their album is perfect music for any chill-out sesh with your best bros or gal pals.
