Somehow Someway is the sixth solo album release of the Greek Beatmaker Billa Qause.
The album is inspired by the 90s Hip-Hop culture. A time when the Hip-Hop genre was established in the music scene and many groups are still known and dear to the younger generations. The LP is distinguished by rhythmical samples, rap punchlines from the Golden Era, spiced up with some old school scratching.
For the creation of this album, Billa Qause experimented with samples from Soul and Jazz vinyl records. This time, he combined his characteristic old school – MPC made – heavy drums with more electronic and ambient sounds. He managed to make this album to sound somehow as a classic album from 90s and in someway as an album that is continuously developing day after day without changing its character and vibe.
The “Somehow Someway” is an instrumental Hip-Hop / Downtempo album and features the Greek Beatmakers Kill Emil and Krus who contributed in “Beats And Pieces”, “All About Practice” and “Light My World”.
