An anonymous Brooklyn producer with a knack for quirky titles has a new set of sounds for 2016. Collaborating with the likes of Kool A.D., SHIRT, and Mr. Muthaf*ckin Exquire, Steel Tipped Dove has become a staple hip-hop producer for me. Enjoy these 16 tracks of instrumental goodness.
A bunch of laid-back, well-paced, head-nodding riddims to enjoy. “The Weed Tape” is graceful in an upbeat sort of way. Taylor’s unique style stands out with its ubiquitous voice samples and scratches laced into something super soulful. This composition is ambiguously fits as an easy-listening album, semi-chill jams, or something that inspires one to spit over it.
STD always jammin. He has this new tape called SEO, if you’re somebody like me, you’d be familiar with the term. Just a bunch of fun jams themed around… internet stuff. One would appreciate the music more, knowing the song names and how they relate to the theme. Optimize your ears.
Grand Chillmaster Flex brings in the New Year right with the right sounds. Features a ton of Asian culture-inspired sounds along with a few others. This has stuff you can meditate to, dance to, hum on your day to day activies… whatever. The amazing thing about it is that even with that style, it’s still themed around the totally different feeling of bringing in the New Years with the typical fireworks, toasts, and festivals. It’s gonna be a great year.
Kisai crafts a hefty load of awesome RPG-sampling instrumentals. This tape contains some of the most head-bobbinest, shoulder-shakinest beats. Kisai has an a unique style of making beats that makes him stand out from all other producers that I’ve heard. Let me shut up though, you’ve got a lot of listening to do.
Producers deserve shine too! These are the most balla beats I’ve compiled over the past couple months or so. I jam these out my headphones, speakers, extravagant sound system, etc. You gotta listen to these.
Oh lawwd. Got that jazzy sax up in there, catchy whistling tune, jamming drums.. I’m loving this. It’s like da perfect combination of smooth and upbeat.
Yeah. This joint will make you wanna dance, boy. Them thick strings that give you the feeling of floating away are gorgeous (hence the name and picture I suppose). The “by faith” voice and that rap sample was just sprinkled into the beat at the right time. I can easily just sit around bobbin my head to this joint for hours.
Oh… goodness. Man this beat is great. It’s inspiring. Addictive. The whole beat has this funky and soulful sound, stylistic of the “Grand Chill Producer”. A little oriental swag to it to, whether intentional or not. Plus those light cymbals on the drop make me swoon.
This joint is gradiose, fervent, passionate, yet… ignant. It’s like glorifying entrance music. The glistening synths combined with that power moaning organ just makes you walk up in da room like.
This some ol ethereal eurhythmic something else that starts with “e” type of music. Reminds me of Raider Klan and Clams Casino production. Just real glitzy and spacial, but still something you can bounce to.
So yeah, enjoy that, and if you haven’t had enough, peep this sneak peek of Kisai the Spooniest Bard’s new beat tape. Dude did some glorious work for some of the best hip-hop this year (FXCK2), so this is doing YOU a favor. Ya feel me? SpoonyRPG
The “Grand Chill” producer teams up with Lion, another dude who has impressed me instrumentally (ya’ll will find out why soon). On some instrumentals. A lil different than what I usually put up, but definitely some of dat good good from people who make valuable contributions to hip-hop. See what else I said about da jownt: Mainframe
