Last year Austin L'Orange and I both left Wilmington having never met each other, though somehow still with respect for one another. I'd heard his name, and even had the pleasure of hearing one of his mixtapes that pretty much blew me away. L'Orange got up with me over the weekend and forwarded this new EP of sample-based hip-hop instrumentals that are absolutely unshakable. I'll spare you the list of other sample-based producer comparisons and just tell you that this is one I'll be bumping for quite some time. Now let's let hit the boulevard and crank the hydraulics like it's '96.
L'Orange - Born Loser
L'Orange - Mr. Lonely
