Common – Like Water for Chocolate

I can’t believe this record is almost twenty years old.

It’s packed with great beats by Questlove and others. The track “Heat” samples Tony Allen, Fela Kuti’s one-time fellow band member and co-founder of the Afrobeat genre.

Here are some beats from the record. – Beck

I sometimes write minimal piano music only to contrast it with busy, breakbeaty beckbeat explorations. 

One part of me has a very methodical approach when it comes to practicing/playing the drums. 

The other part needs to let go and sketch, improvise and flow – without thought. 

Ideally, as an artist, I live a little bit in both worlds.
