One artist in particular we always enjoy listening to is Ari Bald with previous releases on some of our favourite labels such as Let’s Play House and Better Listen Records it’s easy to see why. He comes up strong yet again for the Blaq Numbers Vol.2 with the 8th track on the A-side track, Timber. Strong 80s pads and fluttering keys staple the sound of this track, creating a lush rhythmic masterpiece to add a unique direction to the VA.
