I come across a lot of "Beat Tapes" these days and I have no problem admitting that after a while they all start to blend together. Every now and then I'll get lucky and find a standout. Well actually in this case the standout found me.
Chocolate Milk Crew's Ahnnu sent me the link to his new project "Street Fitness" this morning. I've been following the DC via Richmond, Virginia producer for a couple years now. The sample-heavy project is a departure from his recent synth-based work, but the quality and creativity remains through and through. Expect a lot of interesting drum loops, soul and jazz samples.
Here is one of my favorite tracks "Thought". Head on over to his bandcamp to hear&download the rest. Oh yeah, did I mention its free??
