Ivan Ave & Fredfades Deliver Dusty Brilliance On "Reaping" ft. Kristoffer Eikrem
And it doesn’t get much tastier than this. The latest release from the ever-excellent folks at Jakarta Records is “Reaping,” a cut that sees Oslo-based producer Fredfades matching wits with fellow Norwegians MC Ivan Ave and trumpeter Kristoffer Eikrem. “Reaping” is a dusty chopped loop, plain and simple, and its calm soul drums mesh perfectly with the low-boil flow of Mr. Ave. Sprinkle some soft rainy-day trumpet lines from Eikrem and plant it all over a bassline that moves in all the right directions and you have the recipe for a perfect weekend joint–the kind you and a love one can brew coffee to.
Listen to “Reaping” below, and also be on the lookout for Ivan Ave’s Fruitful, which is due to drop via Jakarta Recs on December 4th and has been produced entirely by Fredfades. It’s so, so proper; sometimes a two bar loop and a little dust is all you need.
