LA beat mastermind Kenny Segal released his new project titled “Kenstrumentals Vol. 3: Travelog”.
For this third installment of the beat tape series Kenny decided to theme it off his recent travels. Last year found him in New Zealand and Taiwan, as well as all over the Pacific Northwest on tour. All these impressions and experiences influenced the music he’s been making lately.
“Paths” is the first full-length release by Portland based young producer quickly, quickly. As a rising talent, he is definitely one of the most promising producers of this generation.
Music has always been a part of quickly, quickly‘s life, as he started playing piano when he was 2 years old. This love of music shaped his young life and created a solid musical foundation for future efforts. In 5th grade, the now 21-year old wunderkind found hip-hop, citing Common Market, J Dilla, Blue Scholars and The Pharcyde as early influences.
This album provides 16 defining tracks filled with musical joy, nostalgia and sweetness. Stream it here:
