There's a lot of beatmakers beyond the usual we always hear about (FlyLo, Madlib, etc). Who out there is really killing it but not getting the props they deserve?

I nominate H-SIK. To me, this dude takes the whole African Polyrhythm thing to where most producers only wish they could go. I met him in a squat in Paris and have been following him ever since. His shit's nasty.

Uh, yeah. I don't really know either, that's why I said both "electronic musician" and "beatmaker" interchangably.

Guy with Awful Records who goes by the name of Ethereal has released a number of jungle / DnB influenced records that I like. I don't listen to a lot of DnB so I'm not sure how I would rate them. Sounds good to me though. Any of y'all listen to the new Pyramid Vritra album?

He posted Lushmore (latest) on YouTube. I only scanned thru it a few times. It does have its moments, but for me, not yet anyway, compare to his Some Other Time EP. That diddy is in my top 5 all time.

Thing is, Lapalux isn't really unsung. He's singed to Ninja Tune, which is the second biggest beat-based label next to Warp.

Not sure how well known this is, but Teebs + Daedelus released an EP together called LA Series 6. Been in constant rotation for few years now.

Ed, I was just talking to this guy in another hip-hop forum who's trying to put a lo-fi beat tape together, whose always pointing to soundcloud cats like that. Eventually I was like, I feel this is where underground hip-hop's going or already is.

 

Anyways, Wajeed lol

Yeah it's gone there a little bit. I guess it's just another sub genre like boom bap, trip hop, trap etc. It's definitley something I relate to though because I grew up in the cassette deck, VHS, cartridge video game era. Shit just resonates with me for the same reason Vinyl/Soul shit resonated with the beat makers the generation before I guess. I also find it extremely deep in terms of mixing theory and technique. It's all about simplicity and execution which I also like.

 

With trap, trip hop etc the sounds are mostly VST so mixing is pretty simple in comparison, all your signals are clean to begin with and you're aiming for a clean sound in general... With lo fi you really have to get creative in your approach and use gimmicky tricks to get shit sounding as dirty and twisted (but pleasing) as possible. I digs that.

Dimlite comes to mind, signed to Now-Again but he's still not getting the credit he deserves in my opinion.

Mike Slott, Dem Hunger, Actress... and some Belgians like Dynooo, Infinitskills, Herrmutt Lobby and Cupp Cave, the latter made this album called Garbage Pail Beats back in '08 that would've made Samiyam blush, Jonwayne used some of his beats on the From the Vaults series I think.

Yeah Dimlite's the shit. I always thought he was already doing shit in 2008 that people are just now catching up to.

I forgot about Dimlite.

 

 

 

 

Damn, this kinda reminds me of a Madlib beat. Can't remember what it was on though.

Dimlite is the nastiest. Anyone who sleeps on Dimlite is not just asleep, they in a coma. He was doing stuff in 2007 that I STILL have no idea how to copy.

I'm letting my music shuffle and keep getting my wig split by a couple of dudes who used to wreck shit in the team supreme battles.

dimlite, prefuse 73, and daedelus were always the 3 producers i really consider to be above the whole beat scene thing, they are just on another level.

 

and to contribute to the thread, hubert daviz, powell, dorian concept (he gets mentioned every now and then and he's on ninja tune too but i still think he is criminally slept on), machine drum (also ninja tune, also is slept on in the hip hop world), dabrye (2/3 is one of the greatest and most well produced rap albums of all time, and way ahead of its time), mike slott (dont know why hudson mohawke and rustie blew up and he didnt, makes me sad), weslee, simo (some korean cat, does anyone know if he has a soundcloud or bandcamp or something? i have like 5 beats from 2008/2009 and could never find any info on him), ichiro_, j todd (this dudes synth game is A+++), ilkae (listen to Pistachio Island and tell me that doesnt sound like it could have came out yesterday on Brainfeeder or Warp or some shit). Really flyring lotus and a lot of these big electronic/experimental beat guys owe a lot to late 90s/early 00s idm.

He's awesome but not really unsung.

 

Has anyone checked out Jai Paul yet?

A few years ago an album got uploaded to bandcamp by someone who stole his laptop. It was taken down the day after, was insane though.
