      STMB   01/22/2017

      Sorry for the outage. The board went down for repairs on January 5th, and we didn't expect to be out for a full 16 days.  STMB is using a default skin, as you can see, and that will probably be the case for a few weeks.  Meanwhile, the board is working better than it ever has before.

The-Jackal ..... Sound just so fat and crispy, incorporated a lot of different roots songs. The Rahzel skit at the end... Winner!

Perrinoid.. smooth. I actually enjoyed most of the beats that used ‘dont say nuthin’... underrated track IMO

Yabba... sick melody with all the keys sampled

Rio Dabeatbenda... such a smooth beat, went so well with Black Thought’s verse

Noodlefingers.... tempo changes were sweet, gave the pretty simple beat an extra flavour

Breakmasta Cylinder... the bass going so well with the samples, they were meant for each other

Billinski... would never have thought to sample drums from one of ?’s red bull lectures (I think?)

Lots of good ones. Here are the ones I LOVED (I aint gay)

Fivepee- God damn. The way he used the samples was great.

Drunken Master 2- If there's one thing I like as much as chill, sunny shit, it's Eastern-inspired shit. Well done.

Soul Jutsu- Great transitions, and the beat evolved tremendously. And you know I love laid back stuff like that.

Slanteyez- So diverse, and dope the whole way through. Nicely done.

Scottie Royal/Muma- Best collab beat I've heard. Well, only collab beat I've heard. But this shit is dope af.

Oskarr On Wax- Great vocal chops and drums

Jamal Randolph- Am I high right now? This shit is intoxicating.

jnKtion- Never heard anything like this before. It's cool.

...Yon...-Grimiest Beat Battle beat I've ever heard.

But I liked this one a bit more than the rest. Mellow Youth- Mellow indeed. I love this joint. You get my vote, man.
