Rush Hour present this ground breaking new project, put together by Cinnaman (Rush Hour) + DJ Jay Scarlett (Spacek Sound System, Sound In Colour). These two beat-heads were brought together by a mutual love and appreciation of the electronic hiphop sound stemming from L.A, Detroit and later worldwide. Around the time of their first meeting, a scene was forming and after a LOT of myspace networking - Beat Dimensions was born!The project was created to showcase todayï¿½s most forward thinking beat producers; some are brand new and some are a bit older - from the well known to the almost unknown. New kids likes Hudson Mohawke, Super Smoky Soul, Flying Lotus / Samiyam (Flyamsam) + Pursuit Grooves next to established artists like Black Pocket (Steve Spacek), Aardvarck + Up Hygh. The artists were selected on the merits of their particular tracks and there are many more already lining up to drop science on future volumesï¿½this thing is going to growï¿½..and grow.
Amsterdam seems to be almost the perfect place to base a compilation of this kind ï¿½ maybe itï¿½s the worldly attitude of many of the producers, DJï¿½s and heads that are based there? Maybe itï¿½s the passion for hip hop beats and way out experimentation? Whatever it is, there is something serious going on in those machines and Cinnaman + Jay Scarlett are all over it!
The release includes liner notes by Rafael Rashid, the author of the book ï¿½Behind The Beatsï¿½.
