Blackbird Belle - Celestial Nighthawk

limited edition tape cassettes

Inner Ocean Records presents "Celestial Nighthawk", the debut instrumental hip hop album from Zack Mitchell, aka Blackbird Belle. While being a new producer to the beat scene, by no means is this a novice effort! Mitchell brings years of production experience and a cult following from his days composing under the ambient electronic moniker Atra Aeterna.

Drawing from his background as a clean and intricate electronic producer, "Celestial Nighthawk" is a methodically written album, fleshed out with just the right amount of warmth and grit, making it stand out from your typical lofi beat tape. Ultra wide and crisp drums, tape saturated piano and guitar, horn sections and vocal samples all melding perfectly in the mix.

Gas Lab - Blue Room

limited edition vinyl + tape cassette


180g Black Vinyl. 200 copies worldwide.
White Tapes High Bias.  100 copies worldwide

Dwelling on a nature reserve on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, tucked away in his self built studio cabin, Gas Lab has been steadily honing his unique sound to create his latest Jazz and Soul Hip Hop masterpiece "Blue Room". Fusing together samples from his talented friends who frequent on his tracks (ie. Juan Klappenbach, Hector Mario, Andrew Gould, etc), Gas Lab lays the groundwork with him impeccable beats and those soul filled bass lines you can spot from a mile away.

"Blue Room" is cool, in the truest sense of the word, with strong nods to Cool Jazz and music eras of days past, still keeping it ultra fresh with laid back loose beats and flow that will have you smiling all the way through. Must be something in all that organic food and Argentinian climate! Whatever it is, we like it and we want more!
