Wun Two - Baker's Dozen: Wun Two (LP)
Fat Beats Records is proud to present the next installment of 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, limited vinyl pressing features one artist and twelve tracks, but only 250 randomly selected LPs 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 Three highlights German producer Wun Two, whose inspiration and process is best described in his own words:
I used to listen to all kinds of music when I was a small child. As a teenager, I decided to try to make my own music, but I never had the intention of making it available to the public. Maybe five or six years ago a good friend told me to put some stuff on a Soundcloud page, and everything else took its course.
When it comes to making beats, I tend to follow the same scheme…I listen to a lot of music and if I find something that I’m feeling I try to make something with it. I’ll program an easy drum pattern and chop the sample or a whole loop to it and add a bass line. I try to make simple instrumentals; because I don’t play the instruments myself, but rather create something that I would call a "collage”.
I grew up and studied in a small quiet village surrounded by forests. In this context I would say my music, this “collage”, sounds calm and very much inspired by nature. I just do what i feel; the compositions always mimic this inspiration.
