Axion117 - MCHD (Cold Busted)

Japanese beat-master Axion117 returns to Cold Busted with the action-packed 17 track MCHD. A worthy follow-up to 2016’s One Thousand Horizon, the album further establishes Axion117 as a formidable sample-samurai, cutting and slashing beats and phrases in a finely-tuned frenzy. The cuts that make up MCHD are varied and expressive, revealing jazzy beat structures, chopped-up melodic motifs, and buttery vibes that can be spread for days. Included in the album are the sublimely uplifting “Up Rising,” the latin-tinged “Dara Pa” and its bouncing kick drum, “Remaking Vibes” with its smoked-out, lounge feel, and the mesmerizing mellow-ish boom-bap of “SIB” As a whole, the album feels like an exclusive crate-digging session led by Axion177. There’s much to explore within MCHD’s 17 tracks. Dig deep!
