K-Def - Beats From Da 90s, Vol. 1: 10 Year Anniversary (Cassette)
K-Def is an unopposed underground beat legend, has been banging on his MPC for years. Beats From Da 90s brings you some of his released and unreleased sampled, looped, soul-drenched lost tracks.
Found in a bag of dusted DATs before leaving the House of Hits and moving over to computers, K-Def brought the heat out of his analog machines. The MPC 3000 and S-3000, were his main weapons, of choice. These tracks in question exemplify that mid-'90s sound to such a degree that it serves up a veritable lesson in boom bap aesthetics, a flawless realization of how emotive, sonically rich and downright beautiful hip hop music can be when executed by a master.
Originally available in 2008 on Vinyl LP and CD formats. Now for the first time on Cassette, this 10 Year Anniversary features the hidden never released Bonus Track "It's Good".
