Africa Beats is a series of experimental electronic hip-hop beat-tapes, showcasing some productions of artists residing on the continent.
Vol. 1 explores some beatmakers making moves in the electronic scene, such as White Nite and Slabofmisuse. The tape starts off with a cosmic, jazzed out beat by O’ltak, followed by a funky raw, headbanging hip-hop joint from the one they call Slabofmisuse. Next beat is from the dude White Nite, and is a synthed out hip-hop beat complimented by some smooth vocals. Lastly, the closing beat is one from DANk, and is a hip-hop beat with blues-type elements and glitchy sounds of a space age sort.
Peep the tracks here and note that two of the tracks (White Nite’s and DANk’s) are available for free download:
