Mtbrd : Damn Fine *Album feature + interview*

We were so thrilled to hear that Mtbrd had released a new album after supporting his last album on Genre Confused back in 2016, you can check that out here.

We love anything sample ridden and music that is pure vibes, and this album is just that!

We caught up with Mtbrd to have a chat about it!

What would you say your favourite sample on the album is?

My favourite sample from the album is probably the one used on When I Tell You. It has some great, clean sections that are wide open for messing with and others that are perfect for classic soul chops.

What is your favourite soul album, ever?

My favourite soul album is easily What’s Going On by Marvin Gaye. Sometimes if I get really obsessive about an album I’ll listen to it over and over until I’ve listened to it too much and reach a saturation point and ruin it for myself, but I’ve never seemed to hit that moment with this album.

Favourite production on albums, new and old?

I love the production on Con Todo el Mundo by Khruangbin. It’s so well balanced and simple. I particularly love the drum sound on that album. And as for an older album, I’d have to mention What’s Going On again. I recently upgraded my speakers and listening to that album again I can hear claps, percussion and breathiness that I’d never noticed before. As cliché as it sounds but it’s been like listening to it for the first time again.

Thanks for reading and listening!
