about

"Range Effect Studies is an uniquely beautiful instrumental based released created by bedroom beatmaker/producer Katrah-Quey (desmond hollins) of the 4shades production collective. He blends lush melodies, samples & chords with boombap driven drums, experimental electronic sections, relaxing soundscapes and very minimal turntable scratching into a cohesive instrumental healing hiphop album. The longer tracks have more dynamic arrangements while the shorter tracks have grooves so rich in depth, you are inclined to play them back over and over. The first half the album provides a good amount of energy to catch your attention while the last half of the album is more meditiative & zen-like. The compositions seems to follow the chakra chart on the album cover with each track activating different spots while maintaining vibrations to improve the quality of your mind, body and spirit. Overall, a delightful listen that is highly recommended."

"Katrah-Quey treats us with a brief but very concentrated and cohesive instrumental hip-hop album that is mellow but very energetic. Laced with heavy drums, shifty procussion and nice bass carried throughout the project complements the chilled out concept of the album that is not boring like many instrumental projects tend to do. For fans of Fat Jon, Comfort Fit, Dimlite, Prefuse 73, Nujabes, Caural and Express Rising - or if you're a fan of relaxing music! 8/10" - James Howard
