INNER OCEAN RECORDS - "Futures Vol. 5"
(Inner Ocean Records)
This is 73 beat tape tracks from 73 different beat tape artists. If you are into the beat tape scene, do yourself a favor and grab this compilation. Futures Vol. 5 is over two and a half hours of high quality jams.
There is an explosion of beat tapes right now, and it may be overwhelming to the uninitiated to find a place to start. This compilation is well curated, and suprisingly cohesive - given the scope of the project.
Don't ignore that "Vol 5" either. That means there are four previous volumes to check out, and they are all top notch.
