Catching downtempo hip hop worms with: Biiig Stretch – Early Birds #Chill #HipHop #StudyBeats @BiiigStretch

There are weeks hen I spring happily into the weekend. And then there are weeks when I limp there before collapsing in a heap. This is one of the latter. And the chilled twittering warmth of Biiig Stretch’s Early Birds is just perfect for that.

Biiig Stretch (Johnnie Young) is from Moreno Valley, California. Of Early Birds he says, “I made this about the birds on my balcony 🙂 (I sampled those same birds).” It opens with acoustic guitar that made me think of the opening to Stairway to Heaven. It has that slightly folky quality. There are some nice punchy beats to stop it all getting too whimsical. And, yes, birds twitter and call. As the track develops the guitar gets a bit more of a Spanish flavour but never raises itself above relaxed. This is very much hammock music where getting up is just too much trouble. Watch the world go by. Let the birds do all the work fluttering about. Proper summer chill.
