Will Evatt One of my favourite albums of last year. Amazing sample work that gives each track a little narrative but never forgetting to be catchy and interesting either Favorite track: A Mind Reader.

The Kelv This album is on repeat every time my kid is in the car with me, by his request! He is 3 and knows all the cues and timing of his favorite parts. He talks and sings along with the tracks. There are so many different moods. I've caught myself plenty of times listening to it on my own as well. This is absolutely brilliant. Track #5 (danger) is actually a banger! On an album suitable for children, this is fucking priceless! 5 stars on the whole project.

about

GRIP GRAND -- ALL AGES

Once upon a time...

My love of records began when I was a kid, and many of the LP's my parents played me--superhero stories, fairy tales, silly songs and sing-alongs--are still in my collection. ALL AGES was created as a way to share those memories with my own children, while at the same time acquainting them with the music I make myself.

ALL AGES might be suitably subtitled "A Child's Introduction to Hip-Hop Production" (of the sample-based sort, anyway). Every sound on the album was sourced from either dusty children's records (the foundation of my own musical journey) or from seminal breakbeats (the bedrock of hip-hop sonics): The majority of what you hear comes straight from my kiddie crates, but for extra boom-bap I turned to the neck-snapping drums that are the building blocks--the ABC's and 123's--of so many hip-hop classics.

This album is a love letter to sampling and sound collage; to the weird, warped, wobbly sounds of vintage children's vinyl; and, most of all, to my kids, for inspiring and sharing these songs with me. I hope you and yours will enjoy ALL AGES as much as we do.
