So I’ve decided to put some of my favorite beats into Beat Tapes and release them on streaming platforms, etc. I wanted to do this for a few reasons - but mainly to share these tracks that I’m proud of and let people listen to them in their normal music-listening environment (Spotify, iTunes, etc.)

And with that decision - I’ve just released my first official Beat Tape: the CRIMINAL Beat Tape. I’m proud of this collection of tracks:

  1. Bugsy - I especially like how the kick and 808 drop at the start of the track / every time the beat drops. It feels really good, especially with a sub!

  2. Capone - this one has a cool verby vibe to it, I especially like the sample in this one.

  3. Gotti - has a nice bounce to it :)

  4. Genghis - quite possibly my second favorite beat on the tape, this one has a really nice head nod to it, once the breakbeat drums drop it feels really nice.

  5. Belfort - my favorite name of a track lol, but also a really nice sample flip. I love the orchestral elements I put in this one (the low brass and low strings give it a really epic feel)

  6. Ulbricht - this one samples a real church pipe organ and has a really cool sound to it because of that. I also love when the beat drops in this one

  7. Dillinger - really nice chill beat with a nice bounce to it when the hats come in

  8. Madoff - I love the way the drums and the sample play off each other in this one - very rhythmic

  9. Popoff - my FAV on the beat tape - mainly because it’s so soulful and is ripe for melody. I also love how the spoken word sample runs right into the downbeat, it makes it feel really good when it drops

  10. Judas - this is possibly the darkest on the tape, I love the snare fill in this one!

Take a listen for yourself
