crazy.III crafts a solemn vibe on "Vain Bells" • Word Is Bond

Hip-Hop producer crazy.III pays tribute to the late jazz pianist/composer Bill Evans on his new instrumental single titled “Vain Bells”. The mellow reflective instrumental samples the jazz legend’s work and flips it into something out the box. The rattling pianos splash against mid-tempo drum breaks to give off a weird lo-fi feel.

Solid work from top to bottom.
