UK producers illiterate and Mr. Slipz bring the boom bap vibes for their new collaborative beat tape. At eight songs, the project blends jazzy piano medleys with hard-hitting drums and bass. Horns come and go alongside synths and bass and claps and kicks. Meshing a golden era / old school sound with a modern take on instrumental hip-hop, this project feels like a quintessential listen for beat enthusiasts. An upbeat comfort tape to close out the year.
This project is the sixth in a series of ongoing beat tapes released through Chillhop Music. While this is the final one of 2022, look out the next to arrive in early 2023.
