Upper Class – NOSTALGIC.

“Nostalgia is a sentimentality for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.”

whenever i’m asked how i would describe my own music, i tell that it expresses my sense for melancholy and nostalgia, joined by what’s going on in my actual life. every single beat i made so far, as short as each of them might be, captures a small time frame of my life and the feelings that i associate with it. Whenever i go back to listening to stuff that I made one, two or even three years ago, i can immediately remember re-feel the way that life felt for me at that particular time. preserving memories by kind of “storing” them in beats is one of the biggest pleasures that i see in making my own music, and i’m astonished i didn’t discover this kind of pleasure earlier. so – this is my latest collection of work. enjoy!

upper class – the small room sessions

there it is. my first cassette tape release. i moved to a new city to start studying in october ’16 – this is a collection of beats I made throughout the past six months in my very small room, that pretty much only served me for making beats and sleeping (more or less) since I spent most of my time and money in pubs with friends. These beats represent this very turbulent, sleepless beginning of the great time i’m having right now.
The tape is free to listen on soundcloud (see link below) – however, if you feel like supporting me here, I’d be very grateful. There are two bonus tracks on the digital album on bandcamp that are on the cassette tape as well. Unfortunately, the amount of available cassette tapes is very limited at this moment – simply because I couldn’t afford any more of them. However, it feels great to have them and I hope you enjoy them as well. thanks for the great support over the last two years! peace.

Upper Class – lo-fi 16

“lo-fi 16” is what i personally consider the successor of last years “lo-fi 15” ep. Back then, it was my first try at creating lo-fi style hip hop and since a year has passed now, you can definitely hear a change in style and quality (i hope).
However, with “lo-fi 16” you get a collection of beats that I made this summer. Beats that capture the vibes of the cities I visited, the movies I watched and the general emotions that i felt. I hope you enjoy. Thanks for the outstanding support and love you’re giving me for what I do. Take this one for free (if you feel like it).

beat music for the travellers of us. and for those who are not. jazzy lo-fi bumps that i made over the last few weeks, inspired by music that I listen to while on the road since i travel a lot. sit back and light one up while listening, or take it with you.
oh, and before i forget: thanks a lot for the growing support over the first months of this year, i really appreciate it!

bumps and joints i made during the last two months, marking the end of a frustrating beat block i was having lately. full of on-the-road vibes and a little taste of nostalgia for a time i actually never experienced but am fascinated with.
