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 strictly limited vinyl pressing features one
artist and twelve tracks, and comes 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.”
