Josh Hey – PL8S Volume 2

For the second installment in the series, Hey hops back behind the wheel and brings you along for the low key ride down 95. PL8S Volume 2 features fellow beat maker and trip taker, rxn who knows first hand what it’s like to be cruising down 15 South with Josh.

Between 2016 to 2019 Hey found himself traveling further and more frequently. His trips out West and beaming up and down the East Coast grew an affinity for vanity license plates.

“Feels like I’ve been on the go for the last 3 years. Whether cruising up and down the Northeast Coast, or driving across the country out to LA, I’ve logged a lot of time on the road. All that time in the car is really when I got invested in the plate game.”

Stay tuned.

Josh Hey – Beat Hotel

Also Available On: Beat Hotel – Limited Edition Cassette and Zine bundle

Beat Hotel is the latest release from Josh Hey, the Philly-based underground vet who’s shared stages with others who stay ahead of the curve – Count Bass D, Swarvy, Juicy J x Joey Badass, Knxwledge, Sir Froderick and Devonwho, to name a few – but with BeatHotel, he cements his singular sound and puts his versatility on display.

The Beat Hotel is split into two “floors” containing compositions connected with immaculate flow; and at the same time, each track has a different flavor from the last and traverses a wide range of moods. Get lost in Josh Hey’s arrangements, machines full of moving aural parts. Hear drums waltzing with samples, cut up like snippets from a dream. Floating notes brought to earth with voices from past and present. It’s a surreal play of sonic density.

Here Josh is the architect of a reality shaped by ideas instead of material forces. From one cut to another he’s tracing memories, evoking history, drawing blueprints of the subconscious. You can use its colorful tapestry of sounds as a palette for escape and live in it for a little while.

The release is deftly accompanied with art by Dewey Saunders, who’s making waves providing intoxicating visuals for other bold artists like Anderson Paak and Nxworries.
