Floyd the Locsmif keeps the music flowing with 'In the Loop'

Posted By on Thu, Feb 9, 2012 at 12:42 PM

Floyd the Locsmif has found himself buried up to his neck in unreleased music that he’s been working on over the years. Rather than let the files stack up and gather dust, he’s devised a way to keep the music flowing out into the world in a slightly different way than what he's been doing with his Divine Designz beat series (read CL's review of Devine Designz 3).

In the Loop Radio Episode 1 is the first of a quarterly (if not more frequent) quasi radio broadcast that’s more like a “blend tape” than a proper mixtape, showing off what he’s got in store.

In an email, Locsmif explains that In the Loop Radio is sort of a blend from “back in the day when you would record radio mix shows on cassette ’til the station started to fade, pause the tape ’til you find another show, and start back recording again. Lol ... That was my frame of mind going into it. I've been sitting on the concept for years and now I have enough music to make it happen so, I'm on it …”

That said, In the Loop Radio is an unmistakable blast of Floyd’s signature mid-’90s Mo’ Wax approach to beats and urbane soundscapes, all woven together with his telltale station identification — “Stay … In the loop,” and stay tuned for more.
