Beatmeister Elaquent impressed us with his 2014 release, Green Apples And Oranges, a smart collection of instrumentals that hit on hip-hop, electronica and dance elements. He now returns with a new release, Good Karma, one that's equally appealing. There's a laidback and lounge-y vibe to tracks like "Far Away", "Golly Jeez", and the title cut that'll take you to a nice mellow place. A fave on the T.O. scene, he has toured in the U.S. and Europe, to warm response. Fans of J Dilla should certainly investigate.
Elaquent (eQ) recently showcased his new material with gigs at Toronto's Supermarket and Guelph's Hillside festival, and he appears at the TomorrowWorld Festival in Atlanta on Sept. 25.
