Indie Danish producer KVBeats spent three years putting together his 2010 debut record The Résumé, and not because he works slowly. KVBeats is not only a gifted producer, but also an industrious workhorse and perfectionist. Dude writes on his exegetic blog subtitled How I Put Together an Album with [highly respected] U.S. Rappers: “You won’t catch me selling beats for scraps on Myspace, I only work with artists that inspire me.” Call him a snob if you want, but KV’s episodic sample-oriented beats warrant the quip and this confident attitude has produced a professional top-notch debut record with features from Royce Da 5’9, Slum Village, Pace Won, Oddisee and Justus League‘s Chaundon.

And we hear Chaundon in finest form in “Maria”, which relays a relatively innocent story about love at first sight, playing off The West Side Story’s “Maria!” and the Chi-Lites’ “Have you seen her?” KV shows off his communicative sampling abilities by sliding into a spanish guitar lick at one point as ‘don talks about the Spanish Harlem and Bacalao, and throwing in a “Ms. Fat Booty” clip to further paint the beautiful lady he describes. Its the kind of collaboration that makes you wish more producers would take three years to make their records.

Available in bits and bites via iTunes or as grooves in sexy blue vinyl.
