"By Nights": Yogisoul's debut album. This exciting conceptual listen features guest appearances from Ivan Ave, MoRuf, Awon, LumiHD, Dialate and the instrumentalists Kristoffer Eikrem (Jazz Cats) and DeAndre Grover who appear throughout the project. The cover art is a photo taken of a dusk-time basket ball hoop, using a design by Dirty Hans. The album is available digitally or on LP with a limited-edition bonus instrumental 45.
The concept of By Nights came from a long stretch of late night beat-making, resulting in a batch of beats that all had an apparent red line. The sound of late night, early morning hip hop beats. While there's no doubt Yogisoul is a hip hop producer, the album clearly demonstrates creative versatility in blending inspirations and genres. From obvious hip hop tracks and instrumentals to jazz inspired souls tunes. The distinctive sound of he's production is evident throughout the record. Dusty rhodes, analog synths, thick layered basslines and crispy drums are essential in Yogi's sound. The record was mastered at Strype Audio in Oslo to add the final touches in completing it's overall warm sound, which in turn resulted in an original and timeless piece of music.
