Finest Ego | New Zealand / Australian Beatmaker Compilation

ever wonder what's comin out of the lab in other parts of the globe? Finest Ego
displays New Zealand / Australian Beatmaker talent, mostly coolout joints, synthy

Lately i've been a fan of seamlessly blending samples and synths/live instruments. Slimkat78's "the years" is a perfect example. whether its matching tone or covering it all with a loop of record static, theres many ways to get it in. This track seems to do it all, well played sir. Last i heard he was touring with Muhsinah as the bands MPCist (playing samples along a live drummer and guitarist) and projects with Oddisee'
well i'll just let him tell you

Blackbery Berry Jones X YU | The LifeLine- (Installment 1)

The lifeline was a show we used to do on black broadway (9th & U streets) in DC.

It was a live production session where my brothers and myself, would collect samples every week and throw them all together in a mixing pot. We would chop the samples live and make beats on the fly.

Artists and instrumental collaborators alike, would be open to join in with words,concepts and sounds. It was magic at every event.

This is my attempt to bring that energy to the online/interactive realm. This first demonstration should give you a hint, seeing as though each installment should differ greatly from the next.-BBJ

big shout to FMWJ RIK! for this one

want more? heres an older video i found called King of chop
