Fresh Roasted: Live Beat-Making & Battle 12/4 @ The Whistler


Bringing to the forefront what’s typically a behind-the-scenes endeavor, the upcoming Fresh Roasted Beatmaking event is the aural equivalent of watching your favorite painter find inspiration, joining them on a supply run, and then patiently watching them work until the big reveal. 3 local record collectors — Tone B. Nimble (All Natural, Al-Tone Edits), Supreme Court (Sheer Magic), and King Hippo (Cuerators / WHPK) — provide the sample sources from their vinyl collections and a group of local beatmakers (including friend of GLM Sev Seveer) go to work, right on the spot, producing songs from those samples. And keeping in tune with the personal experience, the performance then morphs into a beat battle where audience members determine the winner. Let’s call it ‘high-minded Hip Hop.’
