Ryan Hemsworth – Slowed Summer X Hyperbolic Chamber Music

August 1st, 2012 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Mashup |

Ryan Hemsworth gets my vote for producer/artist of the summer of 2012. Or at the very least he gets tied with Danny Brown and Party Supplies. Either way, it’s pretty good company to be in.

The Nova Scotia producer had his breakout moment a few months ago, producing the 22-minute opus to pimping, Hyperbolic Chamber Music, curated by Brooklyn clothing designer, Mishka. The beat is reminiscent of cheesy-1980’s smooth R&B, but there is nothing actually cheesy about the track. The Hemsworth beat with 20+ underground rappers on it makes for the perfect extended mix to drive to the beach with the windows down. My friends and I and have been doing it at least once a week.

With the theme of summer in mind, Hemsworth just dropped his latest mixtape, the aptly-titled, Slowed Summer. While being more of  just a mash-up mix than HCM, Slowed Summer brings the chill vibes (and some Ludacris samples!!!).

You can follow Hemsworth on Twitter and check out some of his older material on BandCamp.
