In early June So Hoops -label released a brand new EP from two supertalented Finnish producers ILE and GFB. They are both Beat Down (annual beat battle in Finland) winners: ILE took the trophy last year, the 2014 contest was GFB’s showdown.
The EP, entitled as ”Tracks”, contains 5 electro-futuristic hip-hop tunes. There is only one guest appearance on the EP: The Liberia-born rapper Ekow from The Megaphone State spits his passionate rhymes on Gorgeous and Spirits. The Tracks EP is third release of new Finnish indie hip-hop label So Hoops.
ILE x GFB -duo is a great example how Internet has revolutionized music world. The dudes had only spoken only on Soundcloud. GFB lives in Oulu, ILE in Tampere. The distance between these two cities is more than 500 km, so the Tracks EP was mostly produced on two different studios at the same time. This is something that seemed impossible 10 years ago. The producers met first time in February, when they both traveled to Helsinki (the capital of Finland) to record Ekow’s vocals for the "Spirits" and "Gorgeous"
