After making a name for himself by supplying the whole Griselda squad with an abundance of bangers over the years, Daringer still has plenty of heat to offer. And today, the gifted producer has teamed up with Fat Beats to take part in their ongoing Baker’s Dozen series–which helps shine a light on the best minds of instrumental hip hop.
“I’ve been developing the ear for composition since my born day,” Daringer says. “My father is a jazz pianist, I grew up everyday listening to hours of him practicing solo improv. That’s why my sequences are often unconventional.”
“I grew up surrounded by a family of musicians that had me listening to jazz, piano, horns, bass, and drums,” he continued. “The MPC became the most natural musical extension for me. The City of Buffalo provided the gritty, and ominous influence I became recognized for.
“I cooked this Baker’s Dozen as a token of appreciation to all the artists who have inquired for the opportunity to rap over my music.”
Equipped with 13 beats (because, duh), led by the previously-released “Afet,” the whole project can be heard below. Press play and add it on your preferred streaming platform.
