Not really sure how I got round hearing some Luqman beats rolling through the interwebs. Either way, I was feeling some of them, but then his fu’d up off-beat fugees flip hit me up, and the man got my full attention.
It was only then that I realized he was actually from Tel Aviv! See, in a small scene like we got going on here, it’s very rare for someone who’s constantly on the look out for fresh music to find out about a talented local producer via the net, and not from one of the usual high-fiving spots where everyone hangs out at.
Anyways - Luqman is one of the best beat heads I heard coming from TLV, producing those forward beating, 70% swing, retro sound sampling joints I love to hear from his peers worldwide. He’s recently signed with local producers label/conglomerate Raw Tapes after contributing a beat to a remix album they released of local rap group Produx, and is currently working on his debut album. Meanwhile he’s unleashing beats unto his soundcloud at a crazy rate, punching his 10,000hrs in.
I see big tings coming this dude’s way, so have a listen here to these select beats, head over to his soundcloud for tons of freebies, and help yourselves to this exclusive F-A-T beat off his upcoming debut album that he most generously shared with Pop Lock followers. Big Up sir!
