Daddy Who is a German beatmaker and producer with a flair for instrumental hip hop & lo-fi sounds.
Taking inspiration from producers such as Madlib, J-Dilla, DJ Premier, 9th Wonder & Daringer, ’90s era hip hop looms rather large here but his skills, personality and ear for melody shine through to forge his own sound. This alchemy is demonstrated with abundance on ‘Milky Way’, the lead single lifted from his latest LP Who Is Who, released a mere two weeks ago. ‘Milky Way’ is a hypnotising bout of production wizardry, with plenty of swagger, strut and funky allure. Introduced by a slew of old-time vocal samples, the deep bassline and dusty beats provide the meat for this swaggering, groove heavy jam. This swagger through a dusty haze is illuminated by cascading 8-bit style glitchy electronics and dripping melody – hypnotising instrumental hip hop of the highest calibre.
