ewonee’s music has always sounded nice but something about this new EP just sounds super nice on headphones. More so than his previous tranquil EP, UN▲TY manages to pack warm, hip-hoppy, jazzy, liquidy audio goodness into bite-sized packaging that defines a sonic palette uniquely ewonee’s. ewonee seems fascinated in jazz for it’s warm textures and dynamism just as much as he is in it’s rhythms and flows. Just listen.
It’s basically Thanksgiving which means it’s Christmas season ho-ho-hos, so let’s give these beaties as presents to the world wrapped up neatly in our special Eat Your Beaties packaging. Celebrate the holidaze with a jazzy tune from poptart pete, some emotional emotions from LIL SAD, alien vibes from Bluestaeb, experimental goodness from Hominidæ and Tsaik and Majira and his waterfalls of piano-based prettiness. Unwrap ‘em after the jump.
If you’re at all familiar with the work of NVTHLSS, than F2i probably won’t be coming out of left field for you. If anything, NVTHLSS’ impressively sized catalog of beats and tapes are a demonstration of just how well an artist can define his own sound through constant recording, releasing and refining. F2i is not the solo material of NVTHLSS however, as the tape is the result of a collaboration with fellow french producer OVRDZ (no idea how to properly pronounce that name either sorry). Although the best I can do is speculate here, it does seem like OVRDZ has pushed NVTHLSS away from hip-hop influence and into deeper electronic territory. Although the percussion still hits mostly in the tune of boom-bap, none of these beats would provide stable ground for a rapper. Instead they are small meditations on warmth and repetition that revel in small moments of energy and inspiration.
For the first time in a while we’ve experienced a beaties surplus and actually had to make some cuts to distill our list down to our favorite beaties of the past two weeks. Needless to say these beaties are tight these beaties are tiiiiiiight. On this volume we got dom$olo with those good time vibes, Organ Donor with some DJ Shadow reverence, Noah B showing his respects for Larry Bird, Lee taking us down to the warmer side of the hemisphere with some reggae, AceMo doing his thing and as an added treat we got DJ Smokey with our favorite Halloween Trick or Beatie.
We’re back on schedule, basically. Despite the fact that my concussion guarantees that I will fall into a deep, dizzying depression every time I spend more than a few minutes staring at a computer screen I cannot give up the noble beaties cause. I will put my body on the line for you all. My head’s a ticking time bomb let’s git it. On this volume of Eat Your Beaties, Nicky Troubles brings the Young Ho vibes, AceMo takes us to emotional catharsis, Woosley Cone gets on all floors, Ahnnu does Ahnnu better than anyone else can do Ahnnu and Ethernt get’s us tippin. Hit that jump, don’t be scared.
This week has already been quite the amazing week for beats, however, no amazing beaties week would be complete without some new material from our favorite French beaties master Nvthlss. Snare autumn takes Nvthlss’ already chilled out style back another jazzy notch to make it more appropriate for the colder weather and windier days that the autumn is brining. Nvthlss even manages to take off some of the bite from Meek Mill and Rick Ross’ “Believe It”, flipping the brag filled affair into an introspective bumper that people could ride their bikes through the park too. Even the closing track “Bitches in the club” sound more appropriate for a campfire than a dance floor. Stream the entire release after the jump.
Sorry, what was that you said, I didn’t quite hear you the first time? Not enough beaties in your life? Pssh, Chef the Chef has got your back. Although we know him mostly from his rapper in the CT duo Ghost Row, Chef the Chef has been improving his beat making craft for a long time now. Although his experiments have usually never left obscurity on his soundcloud page, Chef has decided to collect 24 of them (yup, 24 more beaties for you to munch on) in what I believe is his first solo tape Eunoia. Considering that the tape delivers 24 new tracks and that Chef still is a padawan beat maker, Enoia isn’t going to consistently wow listeners. Instead, Eunoia is definitely a listen for fans of Chef who are interested in the kinds of beats he likes pumping out when he’s not delivering hot fiyah with Color Plus.
