In a conversation I recently had w/ Phat Kat from Detroit, he reaffirmed his amazement at the music that was coming from overseas. I agreed - always have. In a compilation that has been curated to focus on the Italian beat science scene, Beat.it: This Is Not A Revival has finally dropped. Assembling the noise makers from the land of Cinelli bikes and angel hair pasta, Beat.it: This Is Not A Revival introduces 16 tracks from a few names I've known and many I've yet to come across. +1 for discovery. Morpherground, Grillo and RBMA grad AD Bourke are names that have populated my library but the rest are new to my ears and possibly yours as well.
But familiar to my ears is the adept and adroit production featured on this compilation, flaunting the fine craftsmanship to be expected from first rate goods from the Italian Republic. From funk to abstract hip hop, to experimental, Beat.it: This Is Not A Revival looks to fulfill it's goal of presenting the world to their burgeoning underground scene. As a free download, this package will come w/ a PDF containing all the deets you'll need.
