UK producer Wells goes mellow for latest track, 1983.
Another British producer keeping the old school alive in hip hop is Wells. Real name Toby Norman-Bennett, the UK beatmaker specialises in jazzy beats with a hint of that chilled out feeling. 1983 captures that perfectly with its cloudy drums and ethereal sample. But to really get an idea of how good this kid is, you’ll need to check out his Soundcloud. Tracks like Tea Leaf and Hands In The Air really hold the essence of hip hop, also adding some of the heavy compression techniques from masters like Madlib and Knxwledge.
