YOU CRAZY FOR THIS:

This isn’t really an official award we just wanted to give a huge shout out to Holm who embarked on a beatie a day crusade for 365 days.  The dude made 365 beaties.  You crazy for that, Holm.  Another beaties sensei worth shouting out is of course NVTHLSS.  Although he didn’t put out 365 beaties this year he did put out a ridiculous amount of awesome beat tapes.  Pay respects to the beatsmiths out there on their grind.

Winner: SEENMR

Seriously if you don’t know why SEENMR is taking away this award just read our interview with him and then listen to his tapes.  They’ll take you somewhere rad.

Beatie of the Year Nominees:

Winner: Yung AOL – YeenGotDees

Although SEENMR almost took another big win home for the Young Ho Collective, we had to give the nod to DeityGang founding member and leader Yung AOL for “YeenGotDees”.  DeityGang shows dominated my live music listening in 2013 and Yung AOL’s sets were always easy standouts.  Lasting hardly over a minute “YeenGotDees” takes no time finding it’s groove and riding out it’s perfected vibe for the bite sized duration.  It has reverence for but doesn’t rely on the source material.  Listen, hit replay, listen, hit replay.
