Abstract instrumental music for fans of DJ Shadow, Ammon Contact, Lex Records, Anticon, Prefuse 73. Ish’s latest release brings you Chicago’s finest producers Dreas and Meaty Ogre (Galapagos4 and Heardrums), Switzerland’s Dimlite (Sonar Kollektiv), DJ Cutmando, Fadri and Lexx, Germany’s Deckard alongside Ish’s own producers Justin Sayne and Reezm.

The Now Factor” is the definite collection of cutting-edge producer work by the likes of Dimlite, Justin Sayne, Meaty Ogre or Reezm, already standing as a landmark for sublime abstract Hip Hop instrumentals or downbeat. An amalgamation of sampling virtuosity, extricated funkiness and the obscure knowledge of dusty drum breaks. Ish brings you a twenty-three tracks heavy soundscape that ranges from the crunchy and acerbic to the elusive and mellow. A cluster of variety hold together only by it’s firm immediacy “ factorizing intuitive and immediate expressions down to an irreducible set: The Now Factor.
