Ya’ll know we love a good instrumental.

Belgian deejay Poldoore is one of those producers that takes the samples that he uses and completely transforms them, sometimes to the point that you can’t even recognize the sample in the finished track.  His new project showcases this ability well as he takes samples from artists like Lauryn Hill, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, and Nas turns them into deep house and jazz-centered melodies that seem to almost be at odds with the original sound but works out well.  Not that he doesn’t use the samples in more traditional ways.  His version of Ain’t No Sunshine by Bill Withers is essentially a remix, but it has a nice vibe to it all the same and includes the singer’s vocals with only minor alterations to fit the new melody.

We also really like what appears to be original works Angel Dust and Your Touch as they show off his personal style more and, while cohesive with everything else he’s done, does offer a slightly different sound (more EDM) than the work based around the hip-hop and R&B samples.
