Beatflakes – Future Turn Up
Something very special is going on in the Netherlands’ beat music scene—Last year producers such as Boeboe and FilosofischeStilte grabbed my attention with their tracks released through Saturate Records. The sound they are creating is so fresh and psychedelic, the ultimate blend of experimental and danceable. Dutch blog, Beatflakes, brings us some of these forward-thinking producers in their release, Future Turn Up, which celebrates their two year anniversary. The compilation draws on similarly minded producers from Netherlands and around the globe, showing a wide range of possibilities for the future of 808 music. At one end of the spectrum is Boeboe’s X Aisle an evil feeling track with a deep rattling bass line and frantic synth. On the other hand, Shak.’s And it Rained All Night is a late night jam, dripping with sensuality. In between there are tracks such as Chaos a chill track with a spacey xylophone vibe by American producer, Dirty Chocolate. This release is free for a limited time and make sure you download the album so you can get the two bonus tracks from Juke Ellington and Levingtquatre!
