Brand new album from L.A.-based beat producer Take on Alpha Pup!

Although prominently featured on seminal releases such as >From L.A. With Love and this year's All City 10-inch, Take is poised to make the greatest impact of his career with his newest sonic creation.

From Only Mountain's opening salvo, "Before You Think," it is clear that Take has claimed his rightful place amongst the beat scene's leading luminaries. A dusty off-kilter space stomp, the track lays the ground work for an album's worth of hazy electronic textures and intergalactic breakbeats. Case in point: "Incredibright," a no-holds-barred haymaker of astro-hop swagger. On "Implosions," one of the albums more introspective tracks, Take drags us through a spaced out journey of low-end stabs and bit-crushed melodies.

A dense and groundbreaking work, Take's Only Mountain stands as a staggering collection of gorgeously brilliant melodies and deep subharmonic bass. Truly future music towards a brighter end!
