|CINNAMAN (BEAT DIMENSIONS, NL)
LIVE ON ANDREW MEZA'S BTS RADIO ('07)
The Beat Dimensions compilation pinned a very important time for international beat makers. It may have been the first release of it’s kind to document what had been bubbling in the streets of LA and bedroom studios across the globe. A sound most critics and fans alike couldn’t really put their finger on, was it hip-hop? Many tried coining a name for this “new” genre, and failed. At the end of the day, we just knew we liked it. Curated by DJs, Jay Scarlett and Cinnaman in 2007, Beat Dimensions was a great sketch to help the lister dive into a thriving scene that continues to inspire and evolve to this day.
Previously locked away in our archives, and still loaded with unreleased material, this mix is yet another glowing piece of our history and a look at the experiments of up-and-coming producers, who helped define a genre and continue to break the rules.
