    A Kid Love, beta 

    A-KidLove-Beta

    I didn’t want to post up this album until I actually had a good review to go along with it.

    Usually on atypicalLIVING, I like to post things up that I personally dig and that I think you would dig as well. Otherwise, I’d be throwing up every single ainokea, SKIN, etc. type shirt on the site because it’s from Hawaii.

    I do have a filter for this kind of thing. That’s LOFA.

    Anyway, other than that, I get requests to put things up from friends, peers & artists on a fairly regular basis. Most of the time, I concur & give Hawaii some shine.

    But, even if I didn’t know John aka know:juander then I would still highly suggest you get this album. It’s 38 minutes of self-sufficient, DIY Hawaii Hip-Hop. It’s amazing how on point this sounds, considering this is officially his FIRST release.

    Experience what I did by downloading the album here.

    Also, check out my review of the album on Mister J: All Day.

    know:juander presents “Wet Shoe Strings” 

    wet-shoe-strings

    “Wet Shoe Strings” represent the first foray into beatmaking from know:juander aka Juan P aka 1/2 of Hawaii hip hop’s dopest performers right now, The Perfect Median.

    Fifteen months after creating his first beat, he comes out with this sampler of tracks he’s done, including a couple beats that would sound awfully familiar if you’ve been to a Perfect Median show recently.

    This seven-track EP features a ton of soul with hard hitting drums for that quintessential head nod feel.  Some of the tracks sound perfectly at home coming out of the speakers during a Spring Break BBQ.  Chill, relaxed, soulful music you can just vibe with your fam bam in the sun.  That’s the feeling I get from the tracks, especially “Drummer Some” the last song on Side B.

    I’d say more about it, but I’d rather you check it out for yourself and come up with your own conclusions.

    You can download the EP here or check out know:juander’s site at juanderings.com
