Some call it stealing, some call it reinvention, for me, sampling in hip-hop is a necessity. TeV95 samples, borrows, steals and loops bits of soul records until they’re hissing golden-era sounds. He describes this beat tape like this: Crime Loops is a collage of beats edits and loops, that sound exude a taste of urban culture with a hint of Brooklyn’s art renaissance. [via] Well, on “Not Dead” he samples Coldplay—not so sure how ‘urban’ that is—but when flipped/chopped/reversed it’s a solid boom bap instrumental. There’s nothing extremely complex going on with this release, but if you’re in the mood for dusty beats Crime Loops will quell your thirst.
