about

Straight out of Dublin comes the accomplished beat-maestro The Expert. Inspired by golden-era giants like The Rza, Pete Rock, and Large Professor — as well as new school titans Oddisee, Exile, and Eric Lau — The Expert got his start in the Irish Choice Prize-nominated duo Messiah J & The Expert. In 2015, The Expert broke out on his own with the renowned album Dynamic Drift and collaborations with the likes of Tanya Morgan, Zilla Rocca and Has-Lo.

Now The Expert arrives at Cold Busted with Excursions, a 20-track exploration of smooth instrumental hip-hop for the mind and soul. The album is a laid-back journey filled with intricate nuances and sublime rhythm constructions. There are moments of pensive beauty (“If”) and soulful jazziness (“Vacuum”) as well as evocative Latin-tinged moments (“Firmino”) and splashes of spacey moodiness (“Believe In This”). All in all, Excursions is a melodic trip from beginning to end, suitable for unexpected destinations and extended travels.
