Beat after nameless beat.

In a 6000 year old college town in the northern Netherlands, a kid named Nangdo has been working on beats. The beatmaker just dropped a collection of 16 beats constructed in his lab. From the sound of the, the kid loves Pete Rock; lots of jazzy keys and pronounced snare sounds.

Nangdo has dropped a couple of packaged beat collection, but this set of tracks entitled Lost Beats 2001-2006 compiles misplaced sounds made during that pivotal era for beat producers of the world.

Dilla was still alive, DJ Shadow hadn’t yet released a bad record yet, and DJ Premier hadn’t resorted to producing a record for Christina Aguilera.

(Sigh) Those were the good old days, and it’s nice to hear a few loops from then and compare them to the warped abstractions instrumental hip hop has turned to in modern times.

Twas a simpler time.
