This post is definitely long over due (seeing as how I haven’t done much in the past month). Anyway, one of my classmates from middle school released his first EP Lifetime Breaks. For the two years that I went to school with Alta-D (Andres Mendoza), I was always impressed with his musical talent. I remember that he played Passion Pit’s “Sleepyhead” on the piano from ear and it was fantastic.
Lifetime Breaks has an eclectic of sounds ranging from hip hop to jazz tunes and it’s really amazing how Alta-D has composed this 4-track EP. He’s released a few songs on his Soundcloud already and one of them is featured on my compilation that I released last week. My favourite track out of the four is probably “Sitting in Rain” because I’m into the smooth electronic stuff and this track is seriously smooth. Beautifully mixed. I also like the beginning jazzy feel to “Trane” and it definitely has a darker ring to it.
