Qiwu is a French beat maker hailing from Rennes. His sound is heavily influenced by a fusion of jazz, electronic and old school hip hop. On Traveling Arriere, he weaves chilled out instrumental masterpieces akin to the quality work of Gramatik and Nujabes. Jazz is often overlooked by contemporary rappers and can seem inaccessible for listeners but after listening to the jazzy hip hop Qiwu has put together, one cannot deny that Jazz themes provide for some excellent chilled hip hop. You can name-your-price and grab his entire 20-track album at his Bandcamp.
Bonus: French rappers put Qiwu’s beats into practice to great effect.blog comments powered by Disqus
