Vibe Guru is the sophomore solo release from Vancouver producer Nick Wisdom. Sticking with his signature brand of organic mellow synths and samples, he touches on a few different styles while maintaining his sound throughout. Compositions are complimented by vocals lent from Panther, Claire Mortifee and Ohio based emcee/producer, Maggz. It’s a name-your-price download at Bandcamp.com
Fellow Vancouver jazzy-beatmeister, Astrological, brings a new EP full of that hip-hop/jazz/R&B blend he’s known for.

On the instrumental tip, take a listen to “Gangdu ft. Dave P”.
