Veteran hip-hop producer Kenny Segal has announced the fourth instalment of his Kenstrumentals series, scheduled for Dome of Doom next month.

Kenstrumentals is a beat-tape series launched in 2013. The latest edition, Travelog, came in 2018, reflecting on Segal’s travels through New Zealand and Taiwan.

For the fourth instalment, Segal presents the instrumentals from his recent projects with rappers Hemlock Ernst (Back at the House), Serengeti (Ajai), and R.A.P. Ferreira (Purple Moonlight Pages). There are also various alternate versions, each bringing fresh takes to the beats you thought you knew.

Rounding out the release are a few new beats, including a collaboration with his Jefferson Park Boys cohort Mike Parvizi, entitled “corduroy shorts,” as well as a remix of young piano prodigy Jamael Dean’s “Akamara.”

“The past year and a half have been non-stop with the rap album releases,” Segal says. “I’ve had so much on my plate that this instalment of Kenstrumentals is really just me catching up to get some of my favorite instrumentals off my recent works out to the world.”

On mastering duties is Daddy Kev.
