heavy rotation :: REKchampa - All I Have

My favorite Atlanta producer, REKchampa, recently released his long-awaited 6-track album, All I Have, on the newly adorned cassette label, Harsh Riddims. Stefan Ringer aka REKchampa founded the imprint in collaboration with Ryan Parks aka Fit Of Body and several other ATL music devotees. Mr. Ringer has further advanced his unique sounds into something more than just typical dance based compositions. He seemingly gathers influences from a vast range of funk, minimalism, soul, bass, deep-house, as well as the rhythm and blues; making these 6 production cuts probably some of his best work up to date. With a track for the club, the road, the bedroom, and just about anywhere you can imagine, the tones and textures used in the creative musician's music is fitting for any occasion. Incredibly groovy in every which way, this album just happens one of my favorites of the year thus far. Definitely heavy rotation worthy. Purchase the album on cassette or digital over on bandcamp. Stream it in its entirety below...
