For London born producer JD Reid, his rise to the top of the UK's producer talent pool has been smooth & effective. Following a string of hot EP's & releases such as 88 & Maneki Neko, the wizard behind the boards has seen his stock rise, and more opportunities arise. Artists including ItsNate & Fatima called on him to produce some fire for them to step onto & he's killed it every time.
Reid is back with a brand new album for us to sink our teeth into, and true to form his beats are golden and are perfectly matched for the features he's acquired. As one of the UK's most inspiring & talented beat smiths, Reid has found that his instrumentals are in high demand, and on Tree, he continues to show the diverse sounds he has on offer. From slick Far East inspired sounds of "Trees" & "I Really Hope", to the alt r&b esque "XXL", the broad range of vibes is something that keeps the project fresh & interesting. The feature list compliments his beat selection incredibly well, with the likes of fellow UK dons Oscar #worldpeace, Ghetts, Bossman & Slowthai amongst some of the standout guest spots on the project. Truth be told, there isn't one weak appearance on this project. Everything on Trees is clean and slick, making for an immersive listen whether you're out at a rave or sat at home smoking one.
