“At times, artists need to step back from the noise of reality and focus in on their creative process. This track was created with exactly that in mind; the backbone of the beat is the steady and focused groove, supporting the weaving reversing samples, the warm bass line, the twinkling keys and gentle music box.

I believe that sometimes, the daily narrative has to be put on hold. A reality check in it’s true essence.”


Can’t Talk Now

Release Date : November 28, 2018
Artist : Handbook

UK beat maker Handbook dives into the Fall season with a soulful, dusky track titled “Can’t Talk Now”. Drawing inspirations from the world of instrumental hip hop, York-based artist Handbook creates a gate to escape the world around us.

“Can’t Talk Now” is a slow-motion beat groove dwelling the rather dark / mellow instrumental vibes. Occasionally, a vocal sample breaks through the instrumental, only to fall away into the wash of synths and percussion.
