So happy to have Vanilla back with some brand new beats. Usually we only have to wait a year before he drops another album. This time round we had to wait an extra 3 months. Not sure how we managed. This time round its a bit smoother and less soulful. Nothing wrong with that at all.
One of my early favourites of ‘Moonlight’ is this great flip of Michael McDonald’s ‘I Keep Forgettin’. Vanilla’s signature tight production is there in full force as he turns the original groove well up with that punchy vocal and guitar.
Looking forward to digging into the rest of the album and discovering which sampled gems are hidden there. Something to distract me from endlessly wondering (and googling) ‘who the hell is Vanilla‘!

Beautiful piano driven beats from producer Aso for your Tuesday. This guy is definitely up with the likes of Vanilla and I am absolutely loving it. Thanks to our pals at Stereofox for hosting this, we love it.
What absolute vibes this is! THANK YOU to aybner for emailing me and sending me this track. Sample ridden hip hop beats. THANK YOU!
Ollie and I are completely obsessed with Vanilla’s albums. Check them all out here on bandcamp, magical. This, that I found through Keats Collective is something very similar, sample ridden pure vibes. I am setting my week of with this!
I definitely thought I posted this a while back, but I didn’t, so here it is now. I have been listening back to some of Vanilla’s old tunes lately and this one from ‘Soft Focus’ is my favourite. Sampled from L.T.D’s ‘Love Will Grow’ (from their 1980 album ‘Shine On’) it really takes this classic track to another level, making it more upbeat and current. Em
