Eat Your Beaties Awards: 2012

We’ve made a lot of big changes through the last year.  We switched over to self-hosting, designed a custom layout, interviewed a lot of cool people, listened to a lot of good music, and, most importantly, ate a lot of beaties.  Inspired by the exploding beat scene that developed on soundcloud over the past year, we started putting out a …

Eat Your Beaties: Vol. 8

Newt Gingrich once told me that to succeed in life sometimes you just have to drill, drill, drill so drill we did and eventually we came upon a huge reserve of some of the finest beaties to date.  The resulting volume features an avant-garde and captivating instrumental from Ahnnu, a friendly reminder from Raja that Wu-Tang is for the kids, some gameboy experimentation from …

Eat Your Beaties: Vol. 1

We could go (and have gone) on for a while about how soundcloud has changed the beat scene, however, the basic point is that there is an incredible amount of easily accessible artists making increasingly more experimental music that are all based around the website.  Everyday we hear a lot of great beats that we dig, however, due to either laziness or …

The Up-Turn Presents: A Conversation With Trap Arnold
