Trip-hop producer, Anitek, has been regularly making an appearance here on the pages of the Frostclick blog, he's dropped by before with two of his previous records in tow as well as being one part of the duo, Tab & Anitek.
Trained in the classical arts, Anitek is a proficient pianist; having played for more than 15 years. He also plays cello,guitar, clarinet, drums, bass and is also a scratch DJ on the side.
Sae Yeon is the latest project to come out from his bag of tricks. It's an album that bears plenty of trademark Anitek grooves that both old and new fans will enjoy.
One producer/multi-instrumentalits plus one vocalist/lyricist equals one atmospheric and diverse album.The Freakout Tent is the third compilation from talented producer Anitek and rap lyricist/vocalist, Tab.
These two go together like butter and bread. Anitek is known as a top trip hop producer, creating varied and interesting mixes to compliment any samples and vocals overlaid on a track. On the other hand, Tab is a rapper known for his solid verses. He hardly pulls witty one liners like most MCs like to do but instead relies on the structure of his lyrics to go against or flow with Anitek's sound.
Better half of trip-hop duo Tab and Anitek makes his own statement. Instrumental music is always a little tough to judge, simply because there are no vocals or lyrics you could cry out to and criticize point blank like it's off key, or too nasal blah blah. However, Anitek certainly changes that.
Anitek Instrumentals Vol. 1 is filled with catchy tracks. It's more than just trip-hop, its old school rock, blues, jazz and everything in between all rolled into one beautiful sound. Anitek has had several LPs released under his name, including two other volumes for this instrumental compilation. This album is worth the listen if you want something to give you good vibes throughout the night.
