STEREOTYPING is the first full BEAT TAPE EP I release as LoFi Żāhir Project, as much as the others available in digital format (spotify, youtube, instagram), the sound is the same i carry on and love ever since: vinyl records samples and drumbrakes blended together with synthesizers and other instruments. I also took the chance to explore sounds i rarely deal with normally, like TR808 ish sounding drum machines, etc.
The core of the project is the legendary Akai Mpc 2000xl, all the tracks and istruments are re-sampled, chopped and sequenced on it.
The concept behind the title is based on the common opinion that we don’t really ‘play’ our music as beatmakers, we “just push pads”…so yes, we “stereo typing” and love it.
I would like to thank Cevasco Syntharsi, my long time big brother, for joining me with some synth parts in ‘SEQUENCE01’ track; Otto Goods, the genius and friend behind the graphics, for this amazing artwork; The Mpc Box for hosting this project on the website, much love and respect for what you do.
