Image: 1616594 “I just use turntables, vinyl and a MPC, that’s it. I always come back to
the basics with production because it forces me to be creative. Giving a
sense to a melody or a rhythm is a powerful thing and it doesn’t happen
every day.” Belgium based producer, Koss can be considered a hip-hop
purist.
His previously released body of work has emulated late 80’s / early 90’s
heaters producing EP’s for Craig G (Juice Crew), AG (Showbiz & AG) and
El Da Sensei (Artifacts). Now Below System Records (Masta Ace, Phat
Kat, Chuuwee & Trizz) will be releasing his official full-length production
album entitled “Born To Live”.
Whereas the previous EPs was one MC per release, the forthcoming
album boasts an all-star line-up of spitters including Torae, Large
Professor, Masta Ace, Keith Murray, Blaq Poet, Ruste Juxx, J-Live and
Craig G. When asked why he decided to have different features on each
track Koss related “I wanted this album to express life and my passion
for the Hip-Hop culture. My aim was to choose MCs that no matter what
is in style at the moment always stay consistent and remember where
they came from.”
The true school vibe of the album even extends to the remixers that
Koss selected. “Born To Live” features track remixes courtesy of K-Def
(Ghostface Killah, Tragedy Khadaf), Large Professor (Main Source, Nas)
and close friends 12 Finger Dan and B-Base.
