about

‘Soul Food & Skunk Breaks’ is the fifth release by Thijsenterprise as a producer and is a full-length, sampled-based beat tape. Entirely focussed on getting high.

The idea for this project was sparked in late 2018, when Belgian music blog SoulFoodForTheKidz (soulfoodforthekidz.blogspot.com) asked Thijsenterprise to make a special guest mix for their ‘Smoke Breaks’ series: mixes with the sole purpose to enhance the listener’s smoking experience. After creating that mix, he couldn’t let go of the idea to create a full-length beat tape with the same purpose, with care for sequencing as if it's an album.

Thijsenterprise created his own hazy universe with this tape: from rolling a joint to lighting it up and getting high. Or, in the words of Jonas van Overwaelle (founder of SoulFoodForTheKidz): “I hear MONSTERS of loops that slowly creep up from behind a thick curtain of smoke. Leaving a sticky green trace while filling the room with a sweet and mysterious scent…”

This tape shows a new step for the beatmaker: a bigger focus on off-grid drum patterns and different textures, while never letting go of what he loves most: chopping soul and jazz samples, using raw drums and dirty basslines. All for the love of the perfect loop.

Today's double-digital release of ‘Soul Food & Skunk Breaks’ and ‘Night Store Beats’ (thijsenterprise.bandcamp.com/album/night-store-beats) happens between ‘Snits’ and the upcoming ‘Lahringen’ album on vinyl in November. The upcoming record brings together his work as a beatmaker and decade-long passionate work as a saxophone player, creating a head-nodding, off-kilter clash of hip-hop, jazz & punk.

Sit back, roll one, and enjoy.
