Sound OK Beats is a producer only project, consisting of Sez, Smokey the Ghost, Stunnah Beatz, Surya Sritharan, Earthgrime, Rjv Ernesto and ViV3K.
This is the first beat tape release, titled “Sound OK Beats Vol. 1”. The mixtape contains 8 tracks produced by different producers. Each one adding their own flavor to it.
This is what Nasir had to say, when we spoke to him about the project:
“Initiative started/taken at around May, all the producers chipped out a beat each. After a whole lot of delays and inactive patches, we finally put it out on 15th of September. The aim of us is to try and exercise as much liberty as possible in the production aspect and give a collective Bonobo or Pretty Lights type of output. Something that wouldn’t need words. The producers stepped in and it was coincidentally such that we had a variety already. I mean, all of us 8 were totally different in what we did. No 2 of us sounded the same. If you ask us, yes, we also wouldn’t refrain to be the Indian Anno Domini but the primary target would still be that of being a parallel entertainment center against the dearly hated Bollywood counterpart and IF possible, just grab the attention of the lost generation of ours to better thangs. Often I am attributed with being the founder of this, though, I feel everybody found it, because I alone can’t even find my fucking movie folder”
Thane based produced Anand a.k.a. Nasir-El-Amin drops his first mixtape. It is titled as Nasir Chronicles : Quality Edition. It is an instrumental mixtape, and contains 9 instrumentals. Each instrumental has a different vibe to it. The whole sound of the mixtape is really different from what we usually get to hear in the underground scene. Here is what Anand had to say about the mixtape :
“My EP isn’t just the art that I wanted to put out. Also it was an answer to every arrogant producer that ever offended us. Saying politely, “Look at me now, how my anger worked out for me”. Not in the skies yet, still on the ground, but that’s the real word I want to put out to them guys who’d now automatically know if I’m targeting them. How you like me now?
Best believe anything can happen.”
This is a mixtape that cannot be missed by any underground hip-hop fan / producer / rapper. Make sure y’all check this out.
