Universal Beats 1990-2001


Dope production is not limited to any one area as these compilations show. Yes production styles change from region to region but an ear for music is something anyone can appreciate, regardless of where they’re from. I had been thinking about instrumentals after I put together a mostly east coast break beats compilation sometime last winter. Here is a link and the tracklist to that one.

Full Moon Drama‘ is something I heard on the radio when it came out. I fiended to own this lp for years. If anyone out there can tell me exactly who’s on this track I’d love to know. Anyway, Jeep Beat Collective and The Herbaliser are from the UK but everything else there is east coast. Sometimes though what I like best about hip hop from the west coast, south, or midwest for example, are the beats.
