In short, Al Lover is a producer from San Francisco, but there’s more layers to his wall of sound then meets the ear. Over the last few years he has gained much notoriety for his melding of contemporary and past garage and psychedelic rock into harsh yet spacey abrasive beats. Equal Parts 13th Floor Elevators and DJ Shadow, Al Combines crunchy drums, shaky percussion, chopped samples and layers of textured effects to create an unexplored path for psychedelic music. The antithesis to the highly compressed and synth heavy trend in current beat culture, Al Lover offers an earthy and loose approach that sounds more like you’re listening to a DMT fueled psych band than a beat made on an MPC.
