So in the same vein, this weekly list sheds light on budding and even established producers who continue to push the envelope for the culture. So sit back relax and get familiar with these producers.
Remember, don’t forget to support them by sharing their works.

Dusty G – “Pioneer”
Dusty G set things off with his latest beat titled “Pioneer,” a smooth boom-bap beat that takes us deep into the past in some ways. He uses an ominous texture to layer the drums and adds some scratches into the mix to give it that classic hip-hop feel. “Pioneer” is the first single off his recently released instrumental project titled Blizzard Beats.
Villa 31 – “Patience (instrumental)”
Villa 31‘s “Patience” is a mix of trap, crunk, and dark electronic vibes. Very upbeat and dynamic, the bet changes with rapid-fire snare rolls, high-pitched synths and an ominous string to match. Pretty awesome from start to finish.
Villa 31 is a Dj duo from Antwerp, Belgium known for playing oldskool 808 beats. Get it on Bandcamp
“Then The Storm” is a heavy banging beat from Rusty Joints who comes correct on an effortless tip. The drums hit hard through the somewhat rumbling textures laced with ominous vocal samples. The beat is taken from the project The Calm After The Chaos. This is the third in his Chaos Trilogy of Albums.
Maserati Beatz – “Core”
Emerging producer Maserati Beatz shares his newest creation in the form of this beat titled “Core.” The beat has a very solemn, reflective feel and it’s well crafted. Not overcrowded or rough, very crisp and clean all the way.
Get it on Spotify.
Production duo Escape Tones give us a solid peek into their style on this new cut titled “Regrets.” The duo craft a nostalgia-inducing beat that is rife with gripping keys, lo-fi textures and reflective horns to complete the mission.
Escape Tones is an electrofusion duo made up of Nick McFarland on keys and Jeremy Trobaugh on drums. The group originated in Fort Smith, AR, mostly performing live as a funk and jazz trio, eventually molding into their current state following the release of 2 independently produced EPs and a beat tape.

Tuisku – “VOID”
Tuisku makes his debut on our list with his beat “Void” that really switches the dynamics on the list. The beat has a calm cinematic feel that exudes an ominous emotion as if something is about to occur and the progression is quite engaging too. It starts off mellow and builds up into a more dreamy piece towards the second half.
Nickelman – “Sweet Blunts”
Straight out of Osaka Japan emerges Yuki Kitano aka Nickelman who thrills us with this fine piece of dopeness. The beat in question is titled “Sweet Blunts” and it flips a classic vocal sample to perfection. His smooth chops and neck-snapping drums make a solid combination from start to finish. Nickelman is also one half of the production duo Freemanz Production alongside beat maker FROGMAN.
Flowervillain – “something suicidal” (notorious big x daft punk
Flowervillain closes the list with this solid mash-up as he takes Biggie Smalls “Suicidal Thoughts” and some good old Daft Punk funk. It’s pretty solid.
