Yogisoul 'By Nights' (Album Stream)

Yogisoul is from Norway and one of three producers in the Mutual Intentions crew. 'By Nights' is Yogisoul's debut album, released last summer on KingUnderground Records. It's fitting the vibe of my Sunday evening perfectly! From the label's Bandcamp: "The concept of By Nights came from a long stretch of late night beat-making, resulting in a batch of beats that all had an apparent red line. The sound of late night, early morning hip hop beats. While there's no doubt Yogisoul is a hip hop producer, the album clearly demonstrates creative versatility in blending inspirations and genres. From obvious hip hop tracks and instrumentals to jazz-inspired souls tunes. The distinctive sound of his production is evident throughout the record. Dusty rhodes, analog synths, thick layered basslines and crispy drums are essential in Yogi's sound." The album features excellent guest appearances by Awon, Ivan Ave, LumiHD, MoRuf, and Dialate. You can purchase the album digitally, as well as on cassette & vinyl (with a bonus 45). Vibe with it below.
