Beat Tape to Peep: The Gathering from Spok Beats
The Chamber Records impresario and beat prodigy has re-emerged with a new collection.
The thing about Spok is that he's great at this shit. My favorite thing about his work is how melodic it is and how good and exotic and catchy the melodies are. That said, you can't find flaw in the percussive elements of his work- it's great stuff.
Speaking of great stuff, the collaborations with Brandon the Wizard here are a wonderful break from the beats as the Faded Monks are a welcome team to the ears of any longtime fan of these so cal indie legends.
