Elusive makes instrumental hip-hop; the J-Dilla type of instrumentals where there’s enough going on that you don’t actually want a rapper on it. Hailing from Los Angeles, Elusive brings us Cosmic Web on Dome of Doom Records, just a few months after he brought us Headspace. Cosmic Web is chock-full of spacey sounds, weird time signatures and crackly vinyl ripped samples. If he keeps his current rate, we should be hearing another release from him soon.
RIYL: J-Dilla, Flying Lotus, Ras G
