Ford Sharpless dropped their highly-anticipated Instrumental Lo-Fi Hip Hop album “The Cool Era” in November 2019. And it’s exactly what it says on the tin.
The lucid Jazz-soaked beats may be mellow, yet Ford Sharpless’ production skills ensure that each progression spills plenty of winding cathartic mesmerism. Listening to all 13 tracks is highly recommended, but the perfect introduction to their ambient urban nuanced style is the standout track “Blue?”.
The US-based artist first made their inception back in 2003, in the 16 years since they’ve mastered the ability to offer polished aural bliss in their soundscapes. Furthermore, they do it with plenty of distinction.
