Ackryte x JOOB 森本

A collab experimental sample-based hip-hop beatstrumental from two dudes on the come up in the US beatscene.

Having featured on Planetary Beats before, the homie JOOB has just released his next beat in collaboration with Ackryte, a Minneapolis-based beatmaker. The dudes share similar production styles namely; dope sample use, raw drum kicks and mad basslines. The track they conjured up is called ‘149th’ and is a piece of sampling wizardry. The beat is ill, sample is tight, chops are on point, and the synth leads compliment the other instruments. JOOB’s electronic influence is evident in the synth-work, and the hip-hop elements of the track are made up of Ackryte and JOOB’s production techniques meshed together. The track bumps massively and is definitely easy to get down to.

Peep the collab beat here:

SAMIYAM is a Michigan-born experimental electronic instrumental beatmaker residing in LA, producing glitched-out, hip-hop oriented tracks significant of his own style.

As a BRAINFEEDER artist, the homie has released two electronic hip-hop albums; “Rap Beats Vol.1” (2008), and “Sam Baker’s Album” (2011). Both albums showcase the SAMIYAM style of beatmanship, which is symbolic of boombap type hip-hop layered with fat, grinding analog synth sounds. Each experimental beat is different in its own right, pushing boundaries with weird sample selections, mainly evident in Sam Baker’s Album.

Sam has been quiet on the scene in recent years, and according to his twitter, he is currently working on rap beats for a bunch of different rappers he has sourced. Thus we wait in anticipation for his next release.

In the mean time, cop both SAMIYAM albums here:
