about

After the blazing success of his 2014, debut vinyl LP entitled ‘Lessons’ - the beat maker from Bradford is back! Another 20 cuts of boom-bap intelligence from the one they call HashFinger.

"Waves of melancholy ensure Kites features no monotony, seeping through densely structured compositions comprised of resounding layers relaying rustic instrumentation, delicately coerced with rugged-sounding yet intricately personified elements of instrumentalist hip-hop, stimulating a wondrous and refreshing effect through his organically produced melodies. As if trying to depict multiple unspoken narratives, HashFinger possesses an inspired ability to portray sentiments and emotions through sound. Kites is yet another exemplary release, one that genuinely absorbs you into disconnecting from complexity, featuring twenty soundtracks capable of inducing both escapism and contemplation, a showcase of what is surely HashFingers most captivating material to date." ~ WORDPLAY MAGAZINE

"Carefully extracting rhythms and clips from every day life, HashFinger seamlessly combines textured samples with memorable beats to form the 20 track album, KITES. The album courses through with elements of organic hits and rolls, all the meanwhile giving the listener layers of refreshing melodies. HashFinger is notorious for his chopping and slicing skills, and KITES easily displays this along with his ability to create a refined sound, unique within the world of instrumental hip-hop." ~ NaraIsNear

"While we were away one of my favorite producers HashFinger returned to the scene with his new LP Kites, his first for two years. As you might expect from the Yorkshire native, it’s full of dusty melancholic sounds, matched with thumping drums that guide you through his narrative. At twenty tracks deep Kites is not a quick body of work but it’s one that you find deserves more than one play through to appreciate. Let HashFinger take you through a journey of jazzy nostalgia and hit play…" ~ The WordIsBond

"Sticking to the word-less script, HashFinger shows there’s nothing wrong with hitting an instrumental straight and narrow; headnodder’s sanctuary ‘Kites’ entwines closing time jazz, slow-handed funk, scratches and samples with the swing of a hammock in a Bradford breeze, equipped to kick like a coffee shop espresso." ~ Rapture & Verse
