Brooklyn-based producer Cobrayama has released a brand new beat tape comprised of all original music. The project is the brainchild of Mike Iannatto, formerly of the trio Exmag and who used to go by the name Buffalo Analog.
This time around, Cobrayama’s sound channels current instrumental hip hop torchbearers like knxwledge, Mndsgn, and Samiyam more than his former project’s future-funk. The mix, titled Cardboard, has 14 brand new, unreleased, original tracks by the man himself, with some collaborations alongside Hair Club, Illuminator, and Recess.
This is the first release from Cobrayama, and just a peak into the sounds he’ll be releasing as the year goes on. EPs with Gibbz and Illuminator are due out in the coming months, along with a bunch of tasty one-off instrumentals to soundtrack your summer. For now, hit play on the beat tape below and lose yourself in the quirky animations by Rene Laloux. If you like what you hear, you can download the release here, either for free or name-your-price.
