There are a lot of artists out there that like to beat around the bush and allude titles to deviant behavior, but not 4:20, no sir they got right to the point. Released off of French recording label cosmonostro the compilation of instrumental music titled “Bluntstrumentals” is a collection of hip-hop instrumentals pure and simple. No this isn’t a collections of trap bangers that will summon legions of neon new age ravers ready to get “plurnt” and RAGE into the evening, this is a collection of electronically produced songs that are reminiscent of the works on Gramatik’s “Street Bangerz Vol.1 & 2.”
This 13 track collection is awesome, each track bounces and flows with the spirit of hip-hop that can bring out the linguist in anyone. 4:20 has only made blips on the electronic scene, but I am hoping for their sake that they will keep up their production, it is very exciting seeing this type of music circulating within the networks I am following. I don’t know much about 4:20 aside from what I can collect off their sound cloud and their entertaining bio, I think it’s enough to suffice. Take a look.
“I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling walls and crushing ice. I have been known to remodel train stations on my lunch breaks, making them more efficient in the area of heat retention. I translate ethnic slurs for cuban refugees, I write award winning operas, I manage time efficiently. Occasionally I tread water for three days in a row. I woo women with my sensuous and god-like trombone playing, I can pilot bicycles up severe inclines with unflagging speed, and I cook thirty minute brownies in twenty minutes. I am an expert in stucco, a veteran in love, and an outlaw in Peru. Using only a hoe and a large glass of water, I once single-handedly defended a small village in the Amazon basin from a horde of ferocious army ants. I play bluegrass cello, I was scouted by the Mets, I am the subject of numerous documentaries. When I’m bored I build large suspension bridges in my yard. I enjoy urban hang-gliding. On Wednesdays, after school, I repair electrical appliances free of charge. I am an abstract artist, a concrete analyst, and a ruthless bookie. Critics worldwide swoon over my original line of corduroy evening wear. I don’t perspire. I am a private citizen, yet I receive fan mail.” – 4:20
