Hanz – WEALTH MADE TENSION VOL. 2

If you haven’t noticed yet, Peter and I are huge fans of Augusta, Georgia beatsmith Hanz.  Aside from being extremely talented, Hanz has always impressed us with his complete lack of hesitation to push beat making way outside of its comfort zone.  When I say that Hanz is an experimental beat maker, I don’t mean that he is just another guy on the internet putting out tracks that are his best Madlib impressions, I mean that Hanz is completely unpredictable and impossible to pin as being influenced by any beatmaker I know of, while at the same time maintaining a style of incredibly textured beats that sounds distinctly his own.  Wealth Made Tension Vol. 2 is his greatest display yet in my opinion.  The mix jumps from style to style and rhythm to rhythm with close to no warning other than a sample of a woman saying “Turn the page”.  Among all the fantastic remixes and instrumentals included in the mix is a gift in the form of a brand new collaboration titled “Riot” with Hanz’s partner in crime, Chris Villa, who has been improving at a staggering rate over the past few months.  Hanz provides another masterfully crafted beat for “Riot”, and Chris Villa continues his streak of murderous flows and deviant-inducing hooks.  Stream the whole mix below, and jump to 22:30 to listen to “Riot”.
