"Sometimes, it's refreshing to revert to some straight up soul sampling vibes, and who better than the French & Australian combo of Khryo & Kaligraph E to deliver this?
Khryo was recently listed by The Find Magazine as one of the emerging beatmakers to look out for, while Melbourne-based Kaligraph E is no newbie to this game, having a few prolific releases to his name.
Geography plays little significance between these two, as they share similar schools of thought towards the craft of sampling. 'Elixir' is a strong example of their collaboration and mutual respect, made evident with an organic exchange of chops, flips, drums and sounds. "Communication through the core elements of each beat", as Kaligraph E describes it.
'Elixir' is a distillation of the duo's individual styles and idiosyncrasies. It's the kind of beat tape that cuts to the chase and truly represents the art of the chop."
