BOATS – Beat Tape

Oakland’s Aaron Ferguson reached the century mark on his Facebook page and decided to drop this new nameless beat tape. Chaaaa-Ching, free stuff. In April, BOATS released Bleaving which was ”snapping beat variations delightfully dunked in electric kool-aid & cooled with bursts of spaced-out G-funk.” [via] This seamless 26 minute ‘Untitled’ beat tape features some grimy West Coast funk and heavy doses of 808s. It’s not so much a ‘beat tape’ as it’s more of a fantastic long play. This is something I think you’ll want to download and listen to again and again.
