Beverley Hills producer The Alchemist is having a busy year. Having already dropped a studio album (Russian Roulette) and having crafted the beats for Domo Genesis‘ No Idols LP, the underground legend has just released another free project for us to feast our ears on.
His new project, Yacht Rock is the result of a partnership with eye-wear brand 9FIVE. The two parties have teamed up to create a limited edition frame and a seven-inch vinyl with some choice Alchemist beats, over which artists such as Action Bronson (with whom Alc has another project in the works), Blu and Roc Marciano drop some raps. Split into sides A and B, the 12-minute mix is hazy, luxurious listening and you can download it for free, via the 9FIVE site, just click here.
