Through a repost from SPACEMOOD, I’ve just discovered this nice selection of tracks from the early years of the Future Beats scene. The 18-track strong project entitled “Too Old To Be New Too New To Be Classic Vol.1” was put together by Portugal based blog SEQUENCIADEIMAGENS. It features music by the likes of Bahwee, Ta-Ku, Kaytradamus (Kaytranada), Shuko, Miles Bonny and J-Louis.
Some of the songs are super smooth and soulful and some are some are more futuristic and electronic. So all together, it pretty much reflects the beginning of the Future Beat scene. When the sound of instrumental music went from regular sample based hip hop beats to more experimental beats with wavey electronic elements. That was the time labels such as Soulection or HW&W started to rise. Now look how big this whole genre or scene has become!
Hit play to enjoy this nice throwback and head over to Soundcloud to download the single songs.
