Drums & Ammo Vol 1

Drums & Ammo Vol 1

There are two inherent dangers to creating a ‘beat tape’; the format of the collection itself changes the context of the music into something that feels a lot more disposable and less ‘finished’, and what would otherwise be individual sounding tracks run the risk of exhausting the listener to the producer’s hallmarks.

each track plays out with a brevity that ensures your fingers will be more more closely aligned with the rewind button than fast forward

In Drums & Ammo Vol 1, at least one of the problems is avoided by the fact that the project is not a single entity but a team; Ammbush, 6Fingers, REL and Al Jieh have an equal stake in the 30 track LP, each of whose tracks have a different style, and each track playing out with a brevity that ensures your fingers will be more more closely aligned with the rewind button than the fast forward one. Collaborations with Keak Da Sneak, Del the Funky Homosapien, Exile and more hint at the calibre of the talent on offer, and for a free download it’s a no brainer of a download for instrumental hip hop fans.
