Today we discuss shine, the January 21st release from sample master Asano Ryuhei, who creates under the moniker lee. It is a 22-track LP that pulls samples from an array of nostalgic genres. The beats are chill, warm, and skillfully arranged. Surprises are scattered throughout the album as lee seamlessly shifts from dub samples to a soul samples to rock samples and back, with tonal accents tying everything together. Definitely a worthwhile listen.
