Normtronics is a music producer who combies an early 2000s Dillaesque production style and combines it with instrumentals and breaks that sound that they’re derived from both jazz even a bit of house on his earlier works. He breaks away from the common lofi sound saturation modern production and pursues a style that heavily samples an array of genres.
