unchain me

i’ve been playin the new lil b album a heck of a lot over the last week and this track just hits the spot in so many ways; the lost boys sample does it for me all day long. the last time my ears properly pricked up to a tune sampling cry little sister was at a outdoor rave way back when, 6am-sun-coming-up-hard-techno-riddim.

after a wee google i find out it was produced by clams casino. no surprises there then. if you haven’t checked either, his new ep for tri angle is very dope and this beat tape is faultless.

on the subject of the ‘based world’ peoples go check kid keyboard as well. he’s giving away enough good music: here, here, here and my personal fave -> here.

free young l beat tape

i don’t know too much about this fella, apart from the fact that he’s part of the based crew, who have been getting me all hot and bothered recently - lil b, keyboard kid, clams casino etc.

but what i do know is that this free beat tape has some great hip hop on it.

keyboard kid - the mind is so complex when you’re based

i’ve gushed about this man before. and much like before i’m telling you it’s a no brainer. you need this tape. just like you need all the other keyboard kid beat tapes floating around on the internet.

if you know his stuff it’s more in like with the video games and blunts tape. warm synths, perfect claps and vocal samples to make you all wibbly.

keyboard kid - based in the rain 666

it’s only been a minute since keyboard kid (aka lil b’s main producer) dropped his last beat tape, 'the mind is so complex when you're based', and he’s already back with another six tracks of heet.

only the first 200 dl’s were free so you’ve all gotta pay at least $1.50. my bad, i should have got this post up sooner. i owe you all a coffee yeah.
