Jaisu – Suite In D Minor League [Edinburgh, UK]

Electronic / Hip-Hop


When you title a sample-based piece a “suite,” you immediately set up expectations of grandness. This track isn’t afraid of the big screen though–indeed, it lunges straight for the Oscar. Having collaborated with the likes of new rap wunderkind Danny Brown (listen to his latest album, Old, please, it’s one of this year’s best. Pretty please), Edinburgh producer Jaisu knows how to make a track monstrously big, but sparkle like a movie star’s smile. Suite In D Minor League takes you on a sonic journey. From the opening scene, with its slow-burning fanfare, to the snappy drums parts marching along, to the smooth guitar parts, until a jabbing strings part that brings the whole thing to a close–you are constantly watching and tagging along as this cinematic piece moves forward. The whole beat tape, A Short Album, works like this. It feels strongest as a whole piece, meant to be listened to in one smooth take. Short as it may be, there are plenty of little wonders to lose yourself in.

Hear all of A Short Album here, and learn more about the up-and-coming beat-tape label, Astral Black, here. (P.S. Be sure to thank Dummy Mag for the FREE download on this soundcloud player!!)
