Sandhill – Sandhill (Instrumental Tape)

Monday, April 11th, 2016

Sandhill is an Iraqi-Canadian producer from Baghdad via Montreal that I’ve become familiar with over the years through his work with Narcy. The 29 track self-titled beat tape is in remembrance of his late brother and production partner Nawaf “Nofy Fannan” Al-Rufaie.

Sandhill, the beat butcher of Baghdad , and producer/ musical partner to Montreal wordsmith Narcy, drops his self-titled instrumental record in remembrance of his late brother and production partner, Nawaf “Nofy Fannan” Al-Rufaie.

Debuting in the Iraqi-MTLien trio Euphrates in the early 2000s, he currently handles a lot of the production for Arab heavyweights from Shadia Mansour to Omar Offendum, as well as production credits in movies like Fast and the Furious 7 and Telfaz 11 viral sensations.

With Montreal being on the map for producers now more than ever, Sandhill brings a unique eclectic collection of neck crackers and head bangers that travel from. Peep the album here and buy it here.

NR premiero. Put a tea on the stove and enjoy the musical sounds that can also be purchased here for 10 bucks.

I heard the full album at an advance listener accompanied by a visual component in a movie theatre setting a few weeks ago and the whole production was really solid. The project was mastered in association with Landr which is a Montreal start-up that allows you to drag-and-drop files to master tracks, my friend who studied sound engineering actually used the service to master his project a few months ago and co-signs them.
