Although Bonobo isn’t really hiphop, he’s a damn good producer that makes some wildly amazing music. This article is full of wonderful tips and techniques for experimenting with sound design and making your tracks sound more like your own.
This one is specifically about Ableton, but I’d imagine the processes can be easily translated into whichever DAW you work in. Bonobo details some really great tricks he uses in his own work, definitely worth a short read.
If you’re not familiar with Bonobo, here are some of my favorite tracks of his. He makes some beautiful, chill music.
Stay the Same feat. Andreya
Prelude + Kiara
