“After a name change to Dedekind Cut in 2015, he is back as Lee Bannon and doing what he does best: drop funky instrumental hip-hop beats that remind me of J Dilla. This album was released in December and has 30 tracks. It’s intense to get through, but worth every second.

Whoarei: “Love Spectrum” (album)


“Probably best known for being a producer on the Grammy Award-winning Kendrick Lamar album ‘To Pimp A Butterfly,’ this Sacramento native also put out an amazing album in 2020. It’s smooth, intentional and full of texture and emotion. Easily one of the most underrated musicians in the industry.”

Destiny Molina: “Love, D” (album)

“This album follows the blurred lines of today’s R&B genre. It twists and turns, and allows me to fall into the sound, without giving away what sound or track will happen next.”
