LA Beat Maker Trebles & Blues Dropping Debut Album Blue Note

Yeah, he’s got both of those.

Trebles & Blues is a kid from Koreatown with soul. The LA producer is as yet unsigned, with his debut album due out independently on March 1st. Leading up to this record, Trebles & Blues has a ton of beats up on his Soundcloud page that are telltale signs of his biggest influences: Madlib, J Dilla, Pete Rock, Premier.

As his name suggests, T&B digs up and dices samples from old soul and blues tracks, laying them out over straight up boom bap. Most of the tracks we’ve heard from him are instrumental, and we’re hoping to hear more of that on his upcoming album, Blue Note. Maybe he’s naming his album after the jazz label in hopes of getting the Madlib treatment.

Have a gander at some of the tracks on Trebles & Blues Soundcloud, or if you’re conserving your clicks today, just hear the one I picked for you below.
