“For me the intention behind this is simple:
to highlight the lineage of hip-hop production and beat making from the turn of the millennium to the present day,
and perhaps shed some light on the fairly quiet revolution
that has been taking place under the surface of mainstream media in recent years.
With some strange tags being applied to the current standard in beat making,
I feel it it is important to shed some light on to this lineage.
This is a journey from late 90s crate digging, to the circuit-bent soundscapes of the so called ‘post-dilla’ era.
I hope this music inspires you as much as it has inspired me these past 11 years.”
