RECORD LABEL:Illect Recordings
GENRE:Electronic, Hip Hop
Rel McCoy—mostly notably praised for his scribbling and spitting—continues a series of lofi-inspired instrumental gems of sheer sonic splendor. “Catching Time” displays another pleasing dichotomy of the push-and-pull of time vs. the relaxed and the rasp as the pads and organs ebb and flow over and throughout vibey beats. For fans of: Terem, UKDD, Dualizm, Max I Million, Wes Pendleton, Tesk.
