British producer Bibio put out on of my favourite albums this year in Ambivalence Avenue. He’s better known for his folk-tinged electronica but Ambivalence Avenue demonstrates a clear J Dilla influence in how he manipulates and loops samples. The album goes from Sly Stone-esque funk to spacey hip-hop instrumentals to gentle folk and it all sounds of a piece. Anyway,check the man’s serious MPC skills.
Here's a video of him producing the song "Sugarette" (also off Ambivalence Avenue)
I'm curious, are any HHIR readers familiar with Bibio's work? If not, what do you think of the songs I'm sharing here?
