Over Skies

823 Records

Released: 3rd August 2018 | 5 track instrumental (east coast) ep

The 2nd release on 823, a creative project founded by Ta-ku, is featuring the label debut of Portland wunderkind quickly, quickly.

823 is also the numerical representation of the phrase 'Thinking Of You'. It represents the appreciation for the people/ideas/places that inspire us and push us forward. As a label we are proud to present a series of musical releases that showcase the artists musical & visual endeavors. The artwork is shot by the artist themselves & each release has an accompanying photo zine that acts as a visual story that compliments the music they wrote at that time.

There's a maturity to the sound of Portland, Oregon-based producer quickly, quickly that makes it difficult to believe he's just 17 years old. Using elements of jazz, hip hop, and R&B, quickly, quickly weaves a tapestry of wispy productions that feel equally inspired by the dusty drums of early '90s boom bap as they do by the whimsical electronics of head-turning contemporaries like Tennyson. Taking over on vocals, bass, drums, and piano, he offers insight into a greater understanding of musicality, There's time devoted to each audible layer and it shows.

Graham first caught my eye with his film photography - it was only co-incidental that he also made world class sounds & made me ever so jealous with his musical talent at such a young age. Graham is one of those wunderkinds that have managed to create such a strong musical identity for himself and makes it look so effortless. Graham is the reason why I started 823. He is the epitome of someone who embodies that free flowing creative energy that needs to be showcased to the world!

Music has always been a part of quickly, quickly's life, as he started playing piano when he was two years old. This love of music shaped his young life and created a solid musical foundation for future efforts. In 5th grade quickly, quickly found hip-hop, citing Common Market, J Dilla, Blue Scholars, and The Pharcyde as early influences. With his love of hip-hop and early musical background, it seemed only right that quickly would begin to produce his own music.
Having now made beats for around six years, quickly, quickly is producing at the top of his game. The production on his debut EP Over Skies is as easy-going as it is complex, and the fact that there are no samples on the EP makes it all the more impressive. Inspired heavily by the sky and the many forms it takes, this EP blends genres and crosses musical borders with ease.
