Artist Feature - AFTA-1 x New Material

Afta-1 is one of the few new post-Dilla beat-makers that has really made an impression on me. 

In the digital/online music age, there are a lot out there, and it was upon hearing his VERY good 'Afterthoughts Vol. 1' LP that convinced me he is a cut above.

A super-solid long player with beautifully formed instrumental tracks with lush spacey washes and crunchy drum patterns, 'Afterthoughts Vol.1' made for one of my favourite releases for the whole year in 2008.

If you don't know of it, seek it out. Here is a track from that record, the lovely 'The Gaze'.

Yup, delicious.

Anyhow, here is some fresh-as free DL material from Afta-1 direct from his Bandcamp page. 

Just to keep fans on their toes, n these ones he changes his style up in many ways, in fact he has pretty much dropped the drums out entirely opting to go for more ambient, sound-scape type arrangements.

Lucky you, here some extra cyber-pathways to sink your teeth into...

Courtesy of Moovmnt.com, here is a free download of his lovely, sparse Sunday-chillin', headphone-music remix of Little Dragon's 'Fortune'; a killer track in it's own right.

Finally, here is a choice little interview with the artist at the Recluse Sessions blog.
