Ahwlee, California-based producer, is an artist I have fun covering on Marinate. His past two releases have been chilled out hip-hop beats that marinate in thick Roland chords. It’s something of a trademark of his—to turn down the speed of boom-bap, produce a leisurely pace and dim the lights. There’s bedroom music and then there’s bedroom music. “Cuddles” samples Kem’s “I Can’t Stop Loving You,” just to give you a little idea…chillist is bedroom music. At eight tracks deep, about a 20 minute runtime, it’s all chill and cooler than a polar bear’s toenails cool.
