InfinitiRock: 17Years

infirock

InfinitiRock (Chester Anand) has just begun his ascent. This young, but impressive producer out of Red Hook, NY has just had quite the 18th birthday. After signing with Base Trip Records– an independent label blooming out of Allston, MA- InfinitiRock officially released his 40-track beat tape to the universe. Experimenting and fusing hip-hop, electronic, and tape music has been his passion since he made his first beat for his older brother to rap over at the age of 5. Before it was even legal for him to buy a pack of smokes, he has already amassed an arsenal of hundreds of beats. Work from artists such as Madlib, J Dilla and Flying Lotus has helped InfinitiRock to become familiar with what makes a single beat have a powerful impact.

“17Years” is undeniably compelling for a beat tape. While tapes like this can often become repetitive and bland, InfinitiRock has created a living, breathing body of work that allows the listener to stay interested continuously. While listening to this tape from start to finish, there are various points where I am pleasantly reminded of the work of some of my other favorite producers. “Serpent” has a very Pretty Lights style of trip-hop going down, and “AncientWallnutCracker” has a soulful sound that makes me think of D.V.S*. His choice of where and when to provide breaks, loops, and instrumentation produces beats that are usually fireee, sometimes silly, and always unique. Among a countless number of cool sounds that can be heard on the tape, a few of my favorites include: the raking of a xylophone (“Unbelievable”), falling rain and a glass of liquid filling up (“SugarCane”), and a symphony of chimes (“EonDream”).

What I find to be the coolest part about InfinitiRock’s music is the wild blend of vocal samples that he uses. I think they may be what allows this tape to keep a listener from getting stuck in a robot-like state of strictly electronic sounds. Check out “HummingbirdsAndBernard”, “Burst” or “Taigon” to see what I mean.

“17Years” is one for beat freaks, hip-hop/trip-hop freaks, and other producers, and I can tell you it is well worth a five minute download sesh. Download InfinitiRock’s “17years” at:
