E Dot “7 Feet”
Chilled beats and soulful sounds from a frequent feature on Beats Only, E Dot.
E Dot “Boho Meets Boom Bap”
Another dope track from E Dot. Head nods. We’ll stop writing… just listen.
Kurt Stewart “headrush w/ tomcbumpz”
The lofi beat sound is seemingly taking over. Here is another joint that takes the movement in the right direction. Features Tomcbumpz.
Deelovesamy “On Rap City Today”
First time appearance on Beats Only for Deelovesamy. This has that classic 90’s sound we love. Check it out.
Deelovesamy “Calm Down”
He’s back. Digging the mellow vibes here and the drums.
Lazy Tiger “Tapes”
It’s easy to get lost in this one. Lazy Tiger only recently started producing music and it’s clear LT is on the right track. This was a nice surprise from the submission inbox.
One thing I’ve learned about instrumental hip-hop… let the track develop a bit before clicking stop. Glad I did that while screening this one. Reminds me a bit of Theory Hazit’s production.
Rusty Joints “Rust Chips 002”
Produced exclusively on Maschine. Reminds me a touch of Theory Hazit in places.
One of my favorite parts of screening music is when you hear something new, from an artist new to me… that’s really dope. Definitely into the vibe on Synchronicity. This is it.
Finally. After years of hoping… we’ve got an instrumental album from Imperial. It’s a gem. Listen now.
Ohmega Watts “Dropping Gems”
A SOHH favorite drops a surprise EP! Ohmega Watts is back with Dropping Gems, a project that showcases his trademark approach to sampling soulful records.
CoosyLove “Epic Jazz”
Jazzy hip-hop beats from American producer CoosyLove.
