Cohenbeats latest instrumental beat ‘Coming Home’ has all the beauty of a cut from Dilla’s deathbed opus Donuts. A looped piano line adds much of the emotional force to a subtle grooving bassline. Clocking in at two and a half minutes it’s an emotional journey told in a snapshot of time which would see the masters of instrumental hip hop nodding their heads along to in proud affirmation. It’s no surprise that it comes out via Stones Throw, whose twenty-year reign at the top of left-field hip hop remains unrivalled. Let this one soothe your work weary soul.
