The Becoming Real Trilogy Compilation is comprised of 13 of the most popular tracks from Elsa Hewitt’s three albums of 2017: 'Cameras From Mars', 'Dum Spiro Spero' and 'Peng Variations'. From ambient, to hip hop, to downtempo, to lofi techno, garage and house, all shades of Hewitt's early days of diverse beatwork is represented in this compilation. With a natural ear for texture, subtlety and rhythm, her personal yet scholarly approach to blending electronic production with many years of experience as a songwriter and lyricist is the magic potion that culminated in this unique and beautiful brand of music.
