Much love to Classic Drug References for posting a link to the newest issue of Shook, an excellent new magazine that caters, in their own words, to “beat heads and music junkies.” If you’re a fan of the production aspect of hip-hop – or any break-based music, for that matter – Shook is mos def the mag for you. Check out the free issue and then go out and buy a copy for your library.
Also worth checking out is a free compilation of beats by up-and-coming producer Kameleon. Courtesty of Blind I For The Kids, who describe Kam’s sound as a blend of “sultry soul samples with jazz references and hip-hop,” these beats are mad nice fo’ sho’. Listen to Kingpin below, and then visit Blind I to get your download on.
