K, Le Maestro is a producer who hails from the Democratic Republic of Congo and is currently taking the UK by storm. The crisp hip-hop beats he puts out have already caught the attention of big names in music like Flying Lotus. He’s spent the last two years crafting his second album, but before he puts it out into the world he’s giving listeners a taste with the first single, “WHY CAN’T WE?”, out last week.
Le Maestro himself categorizes this track as a “lil smooth instrumental bop to cruise to in the whip”, and it’s a perfect description for such a chill, lo-fi arrangement. He employs an expansive use of jazz sounds and samples over an old-school boom-bap style production, and the result is exquisite. And the bass in this is serious – you can feel the slap with each note.
Take a listen to the song below. Enjoy!
