Bad Taste finally gives us some ELWD on wax, All Good Things makes proper on its title with twenty tracks of smokey soul, beat heavy daydreams and live instrumentation loops that is set to see both ELWD and Bad Taste hitting much deserved higher grounds within the left-field hip-hop sphere.
Having played a central role within the Bad Taste imprint since his first cuts on the label came out back in 2015, ELWD has previously pushed ahead with four albums that play out like a recently uncovered mixtape transmission beamed in from the past, yet retaining a from the far future feeling.
On All Good Things, the feeling that ELWD has really focused in on his sound is strikingly evident. While the lo-fi tricks of his previous work are still here (and rightly so, adding a fresh feeling of 'how did that happen?' accidental happiness to the albums arrangements), the twenty tracks here blow smoke rings of samples into the machines he uses to craft the seriously dope beats, there is a cobweb like filter over the music that has us imagining ELWD spending hours dusting off old 7"s and looking deep into the grooves for samples to help perfect his hazy vision.
Delicious like Donuts.
