Àbáse is a Budapest-born and Berlin-based producer, pianist and multi-instrumentalist. He just released his second EP titled Elevate which is out now via HHV Records/Cosmic Compositions. It is a refined mix of of different styles from hip-hop and RnB to neo-soul and jazz. He explains:

“The EP is a collection of beats I created between 2014 and 2016 in Paris and Budapest that I finished with collaborators I met during my travels to New York, London and Birmingham. The recordings also feature many of my long-time musician friends from the Budapest scene. The sound is heavily inspired by the late 90’s and early 2000’s Hip Hop, r&b and neo-soul productions, especially The Soulquarians (D’angelo, Erykah Badu, Common, Black Star among others). This project is my tip of the hat to that era, but also includes traces of where I was heading sound-wise (the live experimental elements in Crossroads and the outros of Slow It Down or Elevate).”
