Polymath Records – The IV Samples 5 [Drum Kit] [2017]


Polymath Records – The IV Samples 5 [Drum Kit]
(Click Cover To Purchase)

The IV Samples Vol. 5 features 15 original compositions by Multi Instrumentalist, Composer, and Producer IV The Polymath. These samples were composed with the hip hop producer in mind, but span multiple genres. When Polymath is composing samples, he always puts himself back in the position of someone sampling off of vinyl. He often asks himself, “What would I hear on a vinyl record I?” and “What kind of composition would make the dopest beat?”. This unique approach to the atheistic of sample composition captures the authenticity and soul that attracts us as both producers and crate diggers.

The latest IV Samples are dark, infused with elements of jazz, funk & prog rock which are Polymath’s specialty, but also incorporate weird textures, melodies and voices to give producers something fresh that hasn’t been done before.

Instruments Used:

Fender Rhodes (1979)
Yamaha YC-10 Combo Organ (1969)
Hammond a100 Organ (1960s)
Roland Alpha Juno 2 (1985)
Korg Minikorg 700 (1974)
Nord Lead 2 (1997)
Vintage Vibe Vibanet

After a dozen well-received digital & cassette releases, IV the Polymath is back at it with Opening Doors; a unique blend of live instrumentation & hip-hop production.

Musically, Opening Doors treads new territory as it showcases IV’s ability to play multiple instruments while still staying true to his hip hop & jazz roots. IV is one of the few electronic musicians to compose his own music in addition to being a producer.

His hard-hitting drums, funky basslines & soulful keys leave listeners wondering why they haven’t heard of him before. Add in the organic textures & advanced arrangements & each track is a musical journey in & of itself.

IV the Polymath & Allen Poe – How Gardens Grow (Selected Remixes)

This project came together when Allen Poe sent IV the acapellas from his “How Gardens Grow” album for remixing. IV remixed “Places” & then used Poe’s voice to create the instrumental for “Rock 2 tha Rhythm” which Poe laced up almost immediately & sent back.

The acapellas & instrumentals are included for those who wish to remix these songs in their own way. It’s a throwback to the golden era when 12 inch singles included a song on each side of the record + acapellas & instrumentals for scratching & remixing.
