What happens when gritty electronic basslines meet vintage sample laced hip hop? You get the boom bap sample sound of indie producer Artifakts. Artifakts is the ever-evolving, electronic hip-hop project of Garret Meyer. Ranging from gritty down-sampled soulful stomp to mellow, airy and ambient hip hop, Artifakts has carved out a unique sound that not even trip hop can touch. With a more mellow, organic approach to the electronic scene, Artifakts delivers an excellent alternative to what seems like an endless supply of 808s, Womping Massive Patches and over compressed assortment of modern beats.
