Watercolor is LTTL's fantastic debut album, released by Los Angeles's iconic Cold Busted label. The western NY-state beat-maker was trained as a live drummer, but, thanks to a sonic encounter with the sound of MF Doom, emerged as an instrumental hip-hop enthusiast. LTTL's musical palette is composed of phat and precise rhythms mixed with what he calls "psychedelic elevator music." Watercolor's 17 tracks display his technique, resulting in tight, laid-back vibes that groove for days. LTTL's obsession with colors and the natural world is revealed in the hue-named song titles. "Vermillion Blue" opens Watercolor, ringing electric piano and crisp, classy drums leading into a strange sax-like melody. "Lemon Yellow" is next, sounding like the on-hold music for the chillest of skate shops. Other highlights include the dramatic pulse of "Sky Blue," the bird songs, jazzy guitar, and boom-bap beat of "Ultramarine," and the strange melodic pads and growling bass of "Sap Green." With Watercolor, LTTL has carved out his path among a world of downtempo beat producers. The future is bright as he continues to paint his masterpieces with sound.
