Motel Eola, a 19 year old South East London producer, is ready to take hip hop by storm as he releases a three part instrumental EP, “Go to School.” This is a teaser to the release for his debut beat tape “Kids Looking for Gold.” The three part series short instrumental EP concept is a sum of preludes to the debut of his full length beat tape. “Kids Looking for Gold,” due out later this year. The “Go to School” collection will showcase Motel Eola’s skills and production process.
Filled with music he’s made before and during the creation of his forthcoming beat tape, “Go to School-the1st” available now with subsequent “Go to School-the 2nd” and “Go to School-the3rd” being released in the weeks following. In efforts to introduce his sound and generate a buzz, Motel Eola felt the best way to do so was to invite his audience into the creative process. An ambitious and clever mover for the fairly new producer who sites his influences to production greats like Oddisee, 9th Wonder, and Just Blaze to name a few.
“My production influences vary from Oddisee’s experimental drum patterns and breaks to 9th Wonder’s amazing sample usage to Just Blaze and his epic catalogue. I simply love the genius of the instrumental.”
In August Motel Eola released a collaborative project with Virginia emcee Praverb the Wyse, called “Professional Hobbyist-Motel Eola Remix” We learned from that project just how well Eola could match lyrics to the right beats. With his next releases he is looking to make a bolder statement, establishing himself as a producer to be sought after by the lyrically blessed. The “Go to School” collection and “Kids Looking for Gold” beat tape will be made available on Bandcamp, with links being uploaded to Motel Eola’s twitter account as well.
