Oh Those Classic Beats

Oh yeah, I been diggin for some beat inspiration to get me movin. I love that nice swung knockin drum style Boom-Bap Hip-Hop so I dug around youtube and thought I would share some of the dope beats I found. This post might take a min to load cause there's like 10 vids. I tried to include some less known beats so you can dig into something new. Keep this post in fav's if you like to bust freestyles cause this will feed a mad session. These are some of the best in underground hiphop, support the real hiphop and share this blog and these videos.

Neo L.A. by DJ A.I.

Don't forget to grab a copy of my instrumental EP 'Neo L.A. 2019'. It's a tribute to Vangelis and Blade Runner. I used samples from the 3 CD sound track available and one of the many bootlegs. I mainly used the J-Dilla drum kit I have available somewhere here on my blog for kicks and snares. I didn't play any synths on this except for one track I put bass on. I wanted to see what I could do with the original work which inspired me, and Vangelis' synth work is amazing on it's own. Please share this and help support my work.



'Bonne Nuit Single' by Magnificent Blitzkrieg

Here's a new track out on Bandcamp you can download free. This is a single from an upcoming EP in which Atari Blitzkrieg hooks up with long time collaborator MagOwl. This sounds great can't wait to hear the full EP.

Vast Aire - Dark Matter Feat Space

Damn! Looks like almost all the tracks off this album are up on YouTube already. I hate to say it but this joint needs to be, shit is tight. Bump This!

Vast Aire - Spy Spy

The two that teamed up on 'Deuces Wild' to make so many sick tracks are back at it. This joint is off the new Vast album Ox 2010 featuring production my Melodious Monk. Monk has a very sick style of beats I love, 'Man Without Fear' is a great one from the last album. I don't get how so many people try to compare Vast's solo work to Cannibal Ox? To me this new album had to stand up to 'Deuces Wild' and Monk played a big part in that. Vast is in perfect form on this, EPIC lines as always. I'm not waiting for him to recreate 'The Cold Vein' I'm waiting for more good Vast and this is it, don't wait for something that won't be coming. Live in the now, and support real hiphop, give props to Vast for this joint.
