Debut album from the homie reallynathan! For love n war, the LA-based producer lets us in on his musical process and evolution with a wide range of styles that spans tradition boom bap hip-hop, moody ambient soundscapes, gritty lo-fi house, heavy downtempo beats, and everything in between. Growing up in the Bay Area, witnessing the rise of the LA beat scene, and exploring New York's dance underground has given reallynathan a unique perspective that shines through in every track. No matter what the style - each cut is open, earnest, and filled with tension and release. It's this unique vibe that eventually caught the ear of House Shoes, who put nathan on and actually compiled the tracks found here on love n war for a proper release. All tracks produced between 2010 and 2015. Recommended.
