Not only is Anderson .Paak’s music a melding of genres, but he also takes us on a broad trip of sounds through each generation. With inspiration ranging from the 70’s soul sound to modern break-beats from Dr. Dre, .Paak’s new album Oxnard is going to be revered as a classic. The percussion is a huge highlight that stands out because of Anderson’s ability as a drummer. The bass, kicks, toms, snares, and hats all layer together to curate a heavy dose of flavor. With features from Kadhja Bonet, Norelle, Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, Cocoa Sarai, Pusha T, Snoop Dogg, The Last Artful, Dodgr, J. Cole, Q-Tip and Bj The Chicago Kid, there’s something for every ear on these fourteen tracks. “Sweet Chick” is a personal favorite from Anderson and BJ, refreshing our pallets since their last collaboration “The Waters”. Overall, this album is a rich grouping of passionate music from .Paak and friends. This was a real labor of love and the time it took now makes sense, stream this opus below.
