'Have a listen. Then maybe another one. Coz the more I listen to Lessons, the more I get the feeling that copies of the vinyl release might soon become a sought after item for beatstrumental connoisseurs, eager for the crackle and warmth of the analogue sound in these digital days of Serrato and CDjs. This instrumental album is a clear example of roots hip hop beat production: Applying textbook values whilst delivering unique personality through the individually chosen layering and placement of well selected samples and cuts. To be fair, I would be very far from surprised to learn that Hashfinger has rappers lining up around the fair streets of Bradford to lace his delectable tracks.' Wordplay Magazine
'A massively enjoyable journey into the mind of one of this countrys premiere Hip Hop craftsmen – 9/10' - Think Zebra
'One of my favourite producers in the game at the moment, someone who has broken through that boom-bap with an original twist – which is a lot harder than it might sound.' - Word Is Bond
'From somewhere in Bradford, England, Hashfinger inhales heady trichomes and produces jazzed up beatstrumentals like a madman. His new album, LESSONS, is characterized by swinging samples and heavy drum hits.' - The Find
'Lessons, dropped just yesterday and showcases his constant improvement and original, recognizable style. A twenty one track release, it twists and turns through lazy beats, dusty samples and well chosen vocal samples and scratches that make it an incredibly engaging fifty odd minutes of music.' - Broken Culture
