Lord SMS, member of the Swim Team, brings with Wonton Swoosh music that’s the result of a blend of juke, footwork and hip-hop. From samples combined with rapid percussions arise some fire tracks. To get that outcome, you have to know your way with samples. Lord SMS delivered a fierce record that makes you get loose. You’ll find a remix done by Color Plus and collaborations with AOL and rapper IZY.
Pyramid Vritra, member of OFWGKTA’s The Jet Age Of Tomorrow and NRK, just came through with a new self-released Ep. It’s the follow-up to his 2013 release PV 1. This year was a good one for PV. Stones Throw records released two albums from the producer and in 2015 we will see a third release from PV on the highly acclaimed label. With this five track Ep, PV delivers nicely balanced but also dynamic tracks with abstract verses. He delivers obscure beats without using any samples. Get your copy here.
The Gergaz label has been a great support for newcomers and helped them to introduce their music. The latest addition to the Gergaz team is Russian producer My Kingdom. With this little teaser we get a good idea of the talent we are dealing with here. This producer brings an amalgamation of hip-hop, electronics and a slight dose of footwork. Each track contains rich melodies and an own unique atmosphere. The first track features Jekka, who complements My Kingdom’s music with her voice seamlessly. This four track Ep will see the light of day on the 16th of November.
All the way from Alaska comes the cassette label BURNT•TAPES. They release beats that are truly meant for cassettes. The latest release comes from Eets and VIK. Together they created a 40-track long tape. This is some raw material. Lofi sounds and short tracks that are created through some quality sampling work. Expect it to drop on November 30.
The Boyoom Connective is an expert in Swiss beats. The label only delivers quality beats from beatsmiths coming from Switzerland. The latest releases comes from Maloon TheBoom. Boy With a Box is his debut release and an outstanding work. From the first track he takes you on a percussion driven trip, inspired by mutiple genres. But soul has the upperhand, and that’s a good thing. Uplifting beats that bring you those good vibes.
For the second time Doc Illingsworth is calling out for acts of nod. Just play these beats, pay attention and nod. Just nod the hell out. We’re gonna keep supporting this guy, because he keeps on bringing great beattapes. The Detroit based producer has been sharing music heavily the last few months. He is probably one of those producers that flips a sample and makes a beat during breakfast, lunch and dinner. Beats is what he eats, sleeps and breathes. That Danny Brown remix on here is a goldie.
It’s the master. The beat extraordinaire back with a new tape, entitled LOfi Theater. Dibia$e keeps a lofi vibe throughout the record. Dusty beats that have an authentic feel. Throughout the years, Dibia$e has made quite a name for himself. Some consider him as one of the leading contemporary beatmakers. With every record he convinces us of his talent and originality. He is able to make smashing beats full of synths, but also deliver old-skool joints that make you reminiscing the good ol’ days, like with this record. Enjoy this one.
When you take raps from A Tribe Called Quest and use them for your own beat, you’re obliged to kill it. Ze’ Brainchild understands that and delivers a 1.24 minute beat that makes you come back for more and more. The same goes for all the other tracks and classic raps featured on the album. Boom-Bap beats with delicious sample usage make you remind why you love hip-hop. This record is an ode to all those legendary, game changing hip-hop artists. Ze’ Brainchild has a way of his own to drop beats that sound timeless. Get it!
It’s been quiet for about a week here. We’re gonna catch up and post about releases you might already came across, but we still wan’t to share with you. On the 26th of October Lil Ugly Mane came through with a new record. We’ve been a fan since his Mista Thug Isolation tape. A must hear record. Some of you might know him as the producer Shawn Kemp. With The Weeping Worm he is back with new goofy beats. Crazy raw tracks with bold raps. This release also features the likes of Nickelus F, DJ Dogdick and Antwon. Hop on over to his bandcamp page to get your copy.
NxxxxxS comes through with a new album. Fujita scale or Fujita–Pearson scale is a scale for rating tornado intensity. The rating is based on the amount of damage a ornado causes. It’s the theme for this album. His goal was to maintain a vibe throughout the release and create an amotsphere. For him this is not a ordinary beattape, and we agree. It’s a great album that you’ll have on repeat. Creative melodies and shifting beats make you keep on listening.
