Numbsoul is a beat-maker with a great sense of melody, rhythm and flow in the music, blending just the right elements to make hip-hop beats with character and dimension that can serve a variety of purposes. His track “Spring ’17” proves exactly this through a relaxed and mellow steady beat that features also suitable changes in texture to distinguish sections and provide a coherent sense of development.
“Spring ’17” does not only showcase Numbsoul’s ability to create structure through texture but also showcases his ability to integrate melody and harmony within the beat. With delicate and soft melodic phrases shining within the texture throughout the beat also carries a sensitive character to it and it is also interesting to note how these melodies evolve and change within the diffferent sections. Having said all this, the most important part of any beat is the rhythm itself and in this case “Spring ’17” does not disappoint. With a cool, laid back and relaxed vibe the rhythm is not too fast and provides a solid foundation with hints of trap and also further changes between sections that add to the overall dynamic and character of the beat. Check it out and you’ll definitely feel the groove!
