Man, the beats were good this week.. So let's jump straight in
I liked this first #topbeat from the word go. From 0:01 I knew "El Chapo" by dozadrumdealer would stand out from the crowd. It's the first time I've listened to one his beats, but it won't be the last. Definitely checking out the rest of the catalogue, and so should you
Now it's time to get a lil' bit country, with Fabric's #topbeat "Hick Hop". Another instrumental that struck me right from the off, it's always good to see someone putting a spin on a well-ridden genre like Hip Hop. Beats like this can not only re-energise a tired genre, but also inspire others to go and create something unique, which is always a good thing
I can't remember the last time I looked in the charts and didn't see SeriousBeats there. And with smooth instrumentals like "Like Me", that doesn't surprise me at all. Those vocals... They get me every time. And the asian sounding melody over the top? Icing on the cake, with a cherry on top
Pharaoh Vice's "Getting There" is like something straight out of a dream. It's spacy, it's emotional, and it has the perfect balance between hard hitting and super chill. An instrumental fit for any mood, you've got no reason not to enjoy this one
Tyy Bumpin's #topbeat "Poppin" has a real sinister vibe to it.. Like, "maybe I'll take the long way home, rather than cut through the park tonight" kinda vibe, y'know? An exaggeration - yes, but all in all, a great beat to end the RoundUp with. Listen to this loud, and/or with headphones and let those kicks smash your ear drums in
I told you they were good this week didn't I? So much so, the featured spot on Soundcloud is occupied by three beats - Like Me, El Chapo and Hick Hop
Even with such a high standard this week, only Pharaoh Vice made it onto our Most Popular playlist on Soundcloud. Pharaoh Vice also made it onto the Youtube Most Popular playlist, accompanied by SeriousBeats & dozadrumdealer
Huge congrats to all this week. For those that didn't make it, keep grinding, your work is recognised and you'll bag yourself a #topbeat soon!
