Introducing a dreamy and immersive, aptly-titled Instrumental Zen by producer LayedBackBeats.
Zen delivers a track that combines mixed intellectual interest and cinematic freshness with precisely united synths and layers of colour, accompanying soothing rhythms and trap beats.
LayedbackBeats, aka Brandon Miller, makes creative beats that merge professionalism and emotion. His current single, “What’s Next,” features late-night vibes that merge rave nostalgia with a contemporary edge of anguish and enticing trap sounds. On YouTube, he has 63 tracks. The instrumentals were all created from scratch.
LayedbackBeats is a producer of hip-hop instrumentals and trap beats. His influences included Ice Cube WC and West Coast artist Snoop Dogg. Eminem in particular.
Zen drives with a humble tempo but a clearly impassioned undertone, focusing on the whole feeling and featuring an essential riff or melodic pattern that intermittently appears via three independent instrumental layers.
The track also has a touch of trap, with the hi-hats and 808s, but they don’t distract from the main dreaminess. With a runtime of three and a quarter minutes, “Zen” is the perfect length to get lost in but also to come back to again and again.
This particular song is one of those instrumentals that could easily be used as the backing to a thought-provoking or introspective rap song but also stands on its own as a great listen.
LayedbackBeats has a great ear for what works well together and an impressive ability to evoke feeling and emotion in his music.
