After being inspired by releases from the likes of Jay Dee, Prefuse 73, Dabrye, AmmonContact, Sa Ra, Stones Throw Records instrumentals and so on over the last couple of years and noticing an uprise in general of beatmakers worldwide making hiphop, offbeat and 4/4 instrumentals, the idea to put out an instrumental downbeat compilation was born. The compilation will consist of a full length CD, to be released early next year, along with a doublepack album, and a series of 3 limited 12' s. All music is A&R'd and compiled by our very own DJ Cinnaman and Spacek's DJ Scarlett. So here's the second 12 from the series with side A FlyamSam's 'Green tea power'; we checked them on myspace as many beat lovers did, now Flying Lotus (one half of) just released his album '1983'
on Plug Research. Sweden's Hearin' Aid / Figz' and Up Hygh's 'Acid'; producers from Sweden, released already on the Raw Fusion label and met Jay a few years ago,Side B: Pursuit Grooves with 'Push Up', a talented female beatmaker from New York who we met in Amsterdam during our Queensdayparty and Amsterdam's Aardvarck with the track 'Nose'. He is mainly known for his techno flavoured broken beat style and also his recent straight techno output, but goes for a more downtempo approach here. Check!
