Some dope instrumentals in here from The Beatfonics Crew. Check it out.
The Beatfonics Crew is a project deeply rooted with Hip Hop, and with this work they want to go back there. Back in the days it was all about digging, sampling, making it sound in the “right” way…no matter if it was coming from the east or from the west. The Beatfonics Crew is payin’ homage to 90′s Hiphop tryin’ to re-interpret those vibes. 23 beats full of quotes and references to those classic sounds will let you trip through a decade of records and unbelievable masterpieces of the beatmaking art.

February 7th was the date of birth of one Hip-Hop’s most prolific producers – J. Dilla. His talent, work ethic, and life story are of immense inspiration to me in my quest to leave a mark on this world, one soul chop at a time.
To commemorate, I’ve selected the samples used on my favourite 12 Dilla beats, and reworked them in my own way. Dilla contributed to much great music, often times without us even being aware he was the man behind the classic. A go-to producer for Common, Busta, Tribe, SV, who worked with the likes of Badu, Guru, Madlib, D’Angelo, Pharoahe, Pharcyde, De La Soul, and countless others.
A brilliant mind which was taken away much too fast. May his legacy live on with his timeless music.
The Dilla Tape – My humble attempt to honour the greatest to do it.
Rest in Beats.
