These tracks toe the line between rap instrumentals and standalone productions. What makes them more than just backing tracks, however, is the subtle depth and complexity in the sample work. "Hydrate The Hustle" laces R&B whispers with a blanket of reverb that sounds like far away rain; it's got the longing and loss of a great Burial tune, without actually sounding like Burial. "Space Jam Money" is a lesson in restraint. The drums are sturdy and the simple, sweet melodies are tender but not overcooked. Twinkling arpeggios evoke LED flashes in the dark, each synthesizer stroke a trail of red lights on an empty road.
Galcher Lustwerk whipped up one hell of a remix for "Hydrate The Hustle," though it sounds almost nothing like the original. It's classic Lustwerk, with simple, low-lit house chords, chunky drums and an insistent bassline. It'll fit nicely as a transition between the last few records of a warm-up set and the early rumbles of a peak-time dance party.
