I’m sure a lot of producers and overall file hoarders can relate to the most recent dilemma of producer 88-Keys. The combination of a lack of disk space and heavy New York snow finally pushed the producer over the edge to delete some of his old beats. Before doing so he was kind enough to upload 26 joints (so far) into a collection entitled Beats No More for our listening pleasure.
Recently I’ve been reorganizing the way I catalogue my beats to keep track of ‘em & to locate beats faster as I both (potentially) sell them & make them. Early this afternoon, while coming up with a new & more proficient way catalogue my existing & future drum samples, I noticed that I ran out of space on one of my Iomega 250 zip drive disks.
So here they go for your amusement. By no means am I saying these are the freshest batch of beats you’ve ever heard or anything but these were all unfinished “ideas” I laid down 7+ years ago & never went back to. A few of these beats have backstory to them, which I shall get into on my blog posts in the near future. Some funny stories. Some “shocking”. All interesting… In my humble opinion.
