'For Corners' - Diego Bernal (free download)

Following the J Dilla 'Donuts' beat tape format, civil rights attorney and beatsmith Diego Bernal presents 19 tracks of instrumental goodness. And it's free (You're bored of free stuff? Then you can buy it at iTunes on February 24th for $1.99.)

'For Corners' is an eclectic mix of influences coherently crafted into what is essentially an instrumental Hip Hop album. Although if Hip Hop wasn't your thing, I'd tell you it was something else - maybe a World Music album. To make a list of musical styles encompassed here would be boring, so I won't, but trust, it's fairly all-encompassing.

This album has been put together in a way that makes you wonder how Bernal has discarded a knowledge of how things are done in order to totally create things in his own way - this is truly visionary.
