Inf – The Go Round: Best of Everywhere

Inf has been tearing it up all over the place with his debut instrumental full-length The Go Round. Here are the highlights of the past couple months:

Inf Invades Columbia

The title track, “The Go Round,” was featured in the trailer for a Colombian graffiti documentary entitled Bogotá Todo El Día. We’re itching to gets our hands a copy of the DVD to see how the music was used in the film.

Austin Interview + Best of 2009


The Backline Show was kind enough to reach out to Inf and do a nice feature on him. In return, he nerded out and took some pictures of his studio, showing off his 8 trillion vintage keyboards. We feel sorry for his wives; that’s a lot of keys to dust!

Josh Sheperd also tapped Inf with his best of 2009 list on the Backline Show. Boom! Not bad for a lone Dutchman in a sea of notable Austin albums. Josh had this to say about the record:

“I found this album flipping through CDs at End of an Ear. It was a total chance I took. Most listeners know me as a Dilla disciple. I like that organic, creative, sonically colorful hip hop beat. Inf did just that this year with The Go Round. This is an amazing album with just a good smooth, solid, understated sound. If you want to know more about the album and the artist, read up on Inf with the Q and A on Time to B.S.”

The Go Round – Best of 2009


Finally, we’ve all got Kool Aid smiles when we discovered The Go Round made a best of 2009 list. James B. Eldred of Big Shot Magazine declared Inf one of his ten “Big Shots” who owned his ears last year. Other notables who made the cut are Royksopp, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Dan Deacon and The Prodigy. Here’s what he had to say:

“It’s not often that a breaks album has mainstream appeal, but this debut record by Dutch producer Inf should. Big-beat loops and haunting vocals are paired up with funky rhythms and groovy horns samples, creating a funky feeling that sounds like it came right out of the late-’60s but still modern at the same time.”
