Big O – FiNALLY MADE iT ( ? ) (OUTRO).
Producer Big O kicks off the list with a smooth, relaxing beat he calls “Finally Made it(?)”. Pretty solid from start to finish. Hit the play button and get familiar.
E Dot – 7 Feet.
E Dot doesn’t disappoint with his new beat “7 feet” which is a soulful, chilled out rap beat that takes you to the moon and back.
Kool A.D. produced by Cecil Purihin – Tunnels.
Cecil Purihin and Kool A.D team up for an experimental track titled “Tunnels”. The ambient soundscape is quite engaging with its live feel and rollicking jazz inspired vibe. This has spoken word-like vocals over it but it’s still dope.
Sol Beats – Crush.
Sol Beats crafts some good old soul-hop on his new beat titled “Crush“. The LA native showcases his natural flair for crafting surreal, multi-layered soundscapes for the audiences on this one. Totally solid from start to finish.
Young Citrus – Sleep.
Savan DePaul – [[ΘURΘBΘRΘS]], The Instrumentalist.
Savan DePaul debuts on the top 10 instrumental submissions with a low tempo, gloomy beat he calls “[[ΘURΘBΘRΘS]], The Instrumentalist”. A weird title but regardless this is something worth checking out as he layers quirky elements from obscure sources. Its far from the norm and totally solid.
nottr – Anaphase.
Nottr samples a classic Method man vocal snippet on his new beat titled “Anaphase”. The production style is still unorthodox as usual with it’s staggered drum arrnagement and choppy samples. Interesting stuff.
kurt stewart – headrush w/ tomcbumpz
Burlington, Vermont based producer Kurt Stewart teams up with fellow lo-fi beta maker tomcbumpz for a solid combination and the result is “headrush”. A mellow, soothing piece of art crafted with sparkling keys, moody strings, and an overall chilled vibe.
Terrence “Esquire” Huggins – Dream about it.
multi-talented producer Terrence “Esquire” Huggins closes up the list with a dreamy, head-nodding production titled “Dream About It”. The emotion-filled arrangement has interesting elements ranging from nostalgia-inducing strings/pads and vocal-like synths which have a solid calming effect on the senses.
