Fat Beats Records is proud to present Baker’s Dozen, an exclusive vinyl series that shines a light on the best minds of instrumental hip-hop, ambient, and electronic music. Each installment gives one artist carte blanche to capture their signature sound.
Every volume’s 500-unit, strictly limited vinyl pressing features one artist and twelve tracks, but only 250 randomly selected LPs (all Fat Beats orders are guaranteed a flexidisc, while supplies last!) will contain the thirteenth track -- the eponymous “baker’s dozen bonus” -- on a 7" flexidisc. The LPs also come equipped with a 5x7” postcard insert that features a photo of the artist’s workspace along with the equipment used in their music-making process. Visually cohesive and packaged with the utmost attention to detail, Baker’s Dozen is a series that speaks up for artists whose craft renders voices superfluous, whose instrumentals alone suffice to make a statement.
Volume Two highlights Richmond, Virginia’s based beat maker Ohbliv, whose style is best described in his own words:
“The compositions presented on this album represent getting back to the original intent of why I started making beats: creating a raw soulful experience.
As artists in these fast paced times it’s important to remember our initial intent when we began, and mine was and always will be created what I want to hear first.
If you dig it, dig it with me.”
