Los Angeles based producer, artist, promoter, (the list goes on) Hines Buchanan has just released his first solo album. Hines has contributed a mix to us in the past (), and was kind enough to send us a link to enjoy what he's been working on more recently.
What we were treated to was an eclectic yet coherent selection of incredibly arranged and very easily enjoyed tunes, mostly instrumental, aside from some well selected and placed vocal samples. Although rooted in hip hop, Phenomentology is far from limited by any genre constriction, in fact, it successfully journeys outward across genre boundaries and back in an extremely satisfying way to enjoy 52 minutes.
Friends, take it from us, Hines Buchanan is a genuinely creative and innovative musician, we're sure he would very much appreciate your support.
