Compiègne producer Big Ben Beats is keeping the spirit of soulful Hip-Hop alive and well on his latest instrumental collection Soul Beat Tape. SBT boasts 14 hot beats to flow to which utilizes an assortment of spitfire drum loops and well placed samples.
I’m biased towards producers who sample certain tracks (you know you are too! LOL), so the stand out track for me is Big Any producer that can flip a Faze O track is good with me, and I love Ben’s rendition of the Faze-O sampled “Riding High”. Ben added just enough kick under this smooth groove and sequenced the chopped selections just right, giving it originality without straying too far away from the original composition. He also made good use of RAMP’s “Daylight” on the laid back and groovy “Another Day in Paradise”.
Big Ben’s Soul Beat Tape is an assembly of laid-back soulful grooves intended for only the smoothest of emcees to lay words to. Name your own price and cop it, or connect with Big Ben on his Facebook
