Harmony and new landscapes go hand-in-hand with Jinsang as he takes samples and original style to illustrate these proclamations of sound. It is the beauty and grace of the gentle saxophones, or the simple, but detailed percussive sets that spring the movement. Especially on the introduction to Jinsang’s wonderland, “light” which features a subtle build before erupting into a full surrounding of sound. The worlds that Jinsang paints through his production are ones that rely heavily on the roots of stringed instruments and a new blend of drums that switch and shift through the sun-filled rays. Jinsang is an artist that showcases a serious talent to his beat making, there are the touches of polish where sections of the beat is cut out and then replaced with a sample or a completely different switch. Occurring specifically on “Flow On” where a break is placed inside the instrumental to then let in a simple “Yeah” or “What, what” that coincides within the soft, but passionate horns.
There are moments of sheer bliss on Confessions, and Jinsang displays his prowess to create and distribute a sense of understanding behind his tools. The ability to create and have a steady flow of memorable beats makes Confessions a project that is necessary to return to see every little detail that Jinsang provides. It feels like a new adventure each time and while the sound stays in a similar fashion, the actual feeling behind them changes frequently. They take these dives and rises through the sound, the falling action and the eventual glory that comes with the final notes that resonate over certain tracks make for an adventure that never needs an end. Without a rapper or lyricist over the instrumentals, Jinsang is set to have the spotlight completely on himself; this works out incredibly well for him.
The purity behind Jinsang is something that will always be attractive to the ears; showing a human face to the entirely instrumental sound. Confessions mixes everything there is to love about hip-hop instrumentation and displays a prowess when it comes to creating beauty from his fingers.
