Is there a hip-hop equivalent of IDM/experimental?


#103

Not sure what is meant by IDM, but here is some of what I like these days (those with a YouTube vid)


#104

The DT is perfect for more experimental hip hop. Hopefully Elektron will be a part of a new era of experimental hip hop.

That Rakim tiny desk vid is legit. The man is 51 and still kills it.


#106

Haha! Great stuff DImTom!
Was thinking of being that cheeky myself
seeing as you have open floodgates!..

#107

+1


#108

Your stuff definitely has that IDM vibe. Cool stuff!


#109

This band’s beats are not normally like this, but this track always struck me as if Boards of Canada made it and gave it to them to rap on.


#110

Oh damn and this artist is pretty much nail on the head for me:


#111

I’m glad someone else posted this too. It directly answers the original thread question in my opinion.


#112

I’ve always like the chops on this one:


#113

Waaaaaaay ahead of its time, makes it timeless.


#114

:fist::quirky:


#115

Lovely stuff


#116

Cheers man. I really appreciate it. I hope to find time to do a full beat tape this year.


#117

I’ll definitely check it. Hope to do the same myself and finish a load of beats I’ve started


#118

Agreed he makes House, Techno and Drum & Bass under other monikers too, Dilla & Waajeed were making beats in the week and going to Detroit Techno parties at the weekend and the two crossed over in their productions


#119

Funnily I’d been buying his techno releases and his hop hop stuff for years before I found out they were the same person. Such variety in his productions


#120

as you say very talented, I still think the Dabrye stuff is his best you could pick loads more tracks for this thread, especially the instrumental tracks


#121

I don’t know if someone mention him, but Lapalux not bad on slow complex beats. His album Nostalchic it’s a good example.


#122

Always have love the squarepusher remix of this!
