Her Favorite Colo(u)r

by Blu

Blu has had an amazing run the last couple of years, showing himself to be a versatile and exciting rapper. He floats over beats by Exile and Mainframe, or plays well with Ta'Raach on his official releases.

This is a mixtape that shows he has some skills behind the boards as well - most of the tracks on this half-hour mix are purely instrumental, and Blu really comes correct with his jazzy beats and entertaining audio samples. He only spits on a couple of tracks, and while I've seen some complaints that he should have more vocals on this, I found that the mix is very nicely balanced.

I'm very much looking forward to any future releases he may have. You can download this on his Myspace page.
