Mixtape: Hanz- The Fire Thief EP

Hanz’ long awaited The Fire Thief EP dropped today which is possibly the strongest release from the Augusta producer so far.  If you aren’t familiar with the world of Hanz’ music, The Fire Thief is a pretty great place to start because it is apparent from the very start that this is not your average beat tape.  Tracks progress on skeletal percussion with staggering paces and dissonant melodies constructed around contrasting samples.  The beats here are dark and scarce like they could soundtrack and urban horror film, which is a nice change of pace from all the blogwave out there.  Hanz even takes on a 13 minute track entitled ‘Erobern’ with the EP which is something very unusual and ambitious for a beat maker.  Stream the album below and download it over at his bandcamp…
