We head into the final quarter of the year with a very welcome return to First Word from London producer, musician, engineer and DJ, Eric Lau. Following on from his acclaimed early 2017 album, ‘Examples’, we proudly present the second volume – another delectable 28-track beats opus.

‘Examples Volume Two’ is Eric’s fourth instrumental album, and ably continues where he left off with an assortment of sonics, ranging through hip hop, jazz, funk, soul & Brazilian beats. An elaborate sketchpad of ideas and grooves, this again gives a taste of the genius production skills of ‘The Commissioner’, Mr. Lau.

A mixdown perfectionist, his services have been drafted into service on a number of albums over the past few years, including Yussef Kamaal’s ‘Black Focus’, Mansur Brown’s ‘Shiroi’, The Playlist’s ‘Chasing Goosebumps’, DJ Jazzy Jeff’s ‘M3’, Masego’s ‘Lady Lady’, and Kaidi Tatham’s ‘It’s A World Before You’, released on First Word recently. It’s through these recent collaborations that we have a few unique ingredients peppered through this project; the track ‘Jeff’s Piano’ is based on a sample taken from Eric’s iPhone, capturing a moment when Kaidi was teaching Masego a few chords at Jeff’s studio. Both integral players to the Playlist Retreat, Eric and Kaidi have also provided remix duties for Moonchild, Omar and Leon Ware, and Kaidi Kat also lends his key playing talents to a few tracks here.

Eric has also worked as a producer for artists like Oddisee, Guilty Simpson, Dego, Tawiah, Rahel and Fatima, whilst his DJ skills have seen him tour the globe with luminaries such as Erykah Badu, Robert Glasper and Questlove. He’s received props over the years from tastemakers across the world, including Rich Medina, 9th Wonder, Bobbito, Dam Funk, Phonte, Gilles Peterson, James Poyser (The Roots) and Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest).
