Here’s plenty of boom-barking beats and rip-roaring instrumentals; from tingly, toe-tapping electronica to bestial, boom-bapping trip-hop. All these tunes are 100% wild productions.
First up, a beat from eternally mellow beat-maker Damu the Fudgemunk, a spaced-out mesmeric beat from young London-based producer Joe Walby aka DoJo, bumping prehistoric electronica from T.E.E.D. & a trippy instrumental from heRobust.
