I’m always complaining that producers don’t get the same love as emcees or singers. And it doesn’t become more obvious when a producer like Maths Time Joy works with a talented young emcee like Que Hampton. The Kent producer (that’s South East England) doesn’t simply let a loop ride for almost five minutes. Instead, after the New York emcee writes the love letter you wish you wrote, Maths gets busy on the synth and turns a sample of Que’s voice into another instrument for the beat. Be sure to listen until the very end to catch a ballad fit for a 21st century king.
“Sanctuary” will be on Maths Time Joy’s upcoming EP. You may recognize Que Hampton’s name from appearing on tracks with our Unsigned Hype alumnus, Bishop Nehru.

Bryan Hahn is still listening to “Peace God.” He’s on Twitter (@notupstate).
