[Mixtape] Netherfriends: “Beats in Bed”

Production wizard Netherfriends doesn’t exactly have a bed right now. Having spent the past month or so on the road touring America with Rich Jones and currently in the midst of what he calls an “endless tour” that has spanned three years, a bed is more of a luxury than an expectation. It is because of this reason that, after returning to Chicago for two weeks not moving anywhere, he was so excited to spend some time relaxing in his girlfriend’s bed after she left for work each day. In his words, “She would go to work during the day and because I didn’t have a winter coat, I never wanted to leave the house… or the bed.”

Thus, Beats in Bed was made. Ever pumping out new creative content, Netherfriends was able to craft a project that is centered loosely around Ethiopian Jazz samples while adding the drum sequences live from on top of the sheets. As for what’s on the horizon: “I have a new single from my first studio album P3ACE. The song is called Joey Vision. It’s the most epic song about mediocrity. Plus 6 Kind Of Buzzed volumes that I still need to release. I am heading to Austin in December to mix and finish my garage rock album Logan Square and Kanye sample album Netherfriends Goes West.” Netherfriends has been crisscrossing the country for awhile now, spreading funky tunes far and wide, he deserved a rest, we’re just lucky he doesn’t stop working when does so.
