Sic Semper Serpent A cut above the current glut of chill, electronic producers. This album is a modern classic, and a milestone of plunderphonics and chillhop. AND THAT ARTWORK. Favorite track: Reverie (Remastered).

aubrey_ I love the feel of the songs, how idealistic they are, and the album art is spectacular and fits the album perfectly. Some of the songs are hit or miss for me, but as a whole, i can't think of an album i love more. Favorite track: Forever (Remastered).

agamemnon-67 Top-notch sampling and beats...very well-produced! If I was a filmmaker, I'd want my boy Esbe to be the composer for my films! You the man, Esbe!

about

2+ years after the Cold Busted release date this classic gets Remastered and Released for the first time on Double 12 Inch Vinyl, Cassette Tape and 24bit Download plus a new Compact Disc version.

Esbe, is an multi-genre music producer from Los Angeles, California. He is known for his atmospheric instrumental production which incorporates sound elements from extensive use of jazz and soul samples. His latest release, Bloomsday, is a collection of 19 essential instrumentals.

"If you were to grab tracks at random from Bloomsday, you might not have guessed that those songs came from the same album. However, when you listen to the album in the way that it was arranged, it will all start to make sense, and you can start to hear how Esbe connects the dots from one song to the next. Esbe draws from a lot of different styles and influences, whether it be soul, hard bop, cool jazz, bossa nova, boom bap, down tempo, jungle, house, or drum and bass, just to name a few. This might sound like he’s unfocused or trying to do too much with his music, but Esbe has a good sense for not overcrowding his individual tracks. Each song might bring in a couple of different elements, but he keeps his arrangements clean, with just the right amount of interesting samples to build from, and the patience to let them unfold at a steady pace, without forcing anything. There are plenty of obscure samples that you won’t place, but he also manages to pick a few key spots to drop some well-known samples, but then re-purposes them in interesting ways in which to give them new life.

Bloomsday will take more than one listen to really sink in, but it will eventually sneak up on you and reveal its cleverness in really subtle and interesting ways. Esbe has a large musical vocabulary, but he also knows when to pick his spots, piling it on thick at key moments, and backing away at others, giving the listener space to breath and soak in all the different musical ideas floating around here." - scratchedvinyl.com
