Mark Cooper – I Know How You Feel Man Vol. 5
Here’s a fresh beat tape to bring in the new year, vibe along with the fifth volume of “I Know How You Feel Man” from producer Mark Cooper. With this latest iteration, it’s not entirely instrumental as we get some welcomed features dropping in throughout the twenty-one record collection. My personal favorite is the heavy hitting combination of Nate Paulson & Marv Won on “Detroit Ballet“, a fitting title that comes roughly after the halfway point of Volume 5. Zev Howling & Monsoon each lend a hand on separate tracks respectively, placed in-between a fantastic batch of sounds that range from lo-fi & relaxing to the perfect video game background music. “Fire Escape” was my top pick outside of “Detroit Ballet” and though it arrives late there was a lot of contention before it in this smooth & enjoyable volume of music from Mark Cooper.
