As Valet is a Paris based abstract-instrumental-space-hip hop beat producer on Japanese label Art Union Group!
As Valet offers a 15 track ticket to the motherland, featuring dreamy vocals from La Note and Zig16, plus remixes from Blue Daisy (Black Acre) and the Japanese secret beat maker Ichiro_ (Oilworks). With deep influences ranging from 70s jazz, dub, experimental, African traditional, tribal, and 90s hip hop to contemporary advanced beat-edits and beyond, ‘Primitive’ evokes ancestral spirits channeled through analogue filters, dancing to the rhythms of tomorrow.
Essential sounds for fans of everyone from Ras G or Flying Lotus, to Sun Ra and African Head Charge, to Electric Egypt, to matthewdavid, to Madlib, and further.
