Austin, Texas

beatsmith The Deli

released a twelve song

instrumental album

“inspired by outer space

and spring/summer nights.”

The project, Encounters,

is a lofi journey

blending boom bap

with cosmic jazz

to create a truly

psychedelic experience,

one enhanced

with an open notebook

and an ashtray nearby.

If you need more

from the talented

producer, be sure

to check out

Bumps Tape,

which he released

at the end

of last year.

Composed of 26 beats,

it is a compilation

“of my microwave beats,

older beats, b-sides,

raw SP 404 beats,

and beats I made

out of my comfort zone.
