Imperial – “God Bless The Child” [@illect @ImperialBeats]


“To celebrate the birth of my son on 15th March 2013, I am releasing an instrumental hip-hop single for free download.

I did a lot of crate digging in 2012 and came across ‘Horn Culture’ by Jazz saxophonist, Sonny Rollins. There is a really rich and chilled track called ‘God Bless the Child’ with some very tasty Sax improvisation. I chopped the track into various samples and loaded them into Logic’s EXS24 sampler towards the end of 2012. It remained unused, until the sample came to mind about four weeks before the birth of my son, for obvious reasons. It seemed right to make a track using it.

Musically, my version of ‘God Bless the Child’ represents the influences I was listening to at the time I produced it and I now feel a personal connection to the track name. I hope my son finds at least some of the enjoyment in listening to this in years to come, as I have had creating it.

Go, get ’em, kid, this one’s for you!” – Imperial
