In case you haven’t noticed, the world hasn’t melted like the Mayans said it would and unfortunately Terence and I still have the obligation of fulfilling our duties as professional beatie explorers. Yadda yadda yadda, you get the point these beaties are dope. Kicking off the new year we have “Soul Queen” from the so called Cream of the Beats, weird-funk musings from rbe, 80s-future-dectective-step from Suicideyear (one of the more promising producers we’ve stumbled upon lately), good old cop harassment from Kommerz Klaus and a slow burner from rulesrulesrules. Eat ‘em after the jump.
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 lack of song length/progression we don’t have much more to say about the music than that it’s really good. So from now on we’ll be featuring the creme of the beat crop on Eat Your Beaties. We’re kicking off Vol. 1 with a 16-bit banger from Option Command, Yung Satan’s remix of Koen’s ’992′, a beat from Oakland based OSO, a collab from Poptart Pete and Tuamie and a fresh tune from Russian producer rbe. all after the jump.
