“From Vancouver, BC…
Working almost entirely from vinyl and homemade field recordings, Karavelo has created a raw portrait of modern hip hop using a collage of vintage sounds. Armed with only a turntable, MPC, SP404, and a Tascam DP-008, the album serves as a testament to producers who avoid relying on computers to create their music. Koldpak.Halflyfe is an eclectic audio diary, taking you on a journey through the mind of a true sound collector, one halflyfe vision at a time.
BläpDëli(Emmett Kai), flew up to Vancouver for a 5 day, beatmaking, beer drinking, crate digging adventure with Karavelo in early April of 2014. They set up a makeshift studio in the living room of Karavelo’s cozy apartment complex in the heart of West Van, dumping their collections of records out on the floor and setting up shop on the already empty circular dining room table, where they made beats after beats after beats. Some of the tunes you hear on the tape we’re brewed by Karavelo while BläpDëli was in the same room working on his beats in peaked out headphones. The two stay in consistent contact and together worked on bringing the official GR // Karavelo tape “Koldpak.Halflyfe.” Enjoy the sounds.”
