The superb Melting Pot Music beat series Hi-Hat Club is back with a new installation, it’s 6th, this time around featuring one of my favourite beat crafts out there, Dj Adlib. Best thing about Adlib, who’s no stranger to forward thinking, bass driven beats, is that he nevertheless remembers to always hold the structure, to keep it simple, to stay in the groove and not jump the beat’s frame.
This album is instrumental hip hop as it should sound in 2012, so fresh and interesting, yet always accessible and soulful. One thing I would do though, is get rid of all the MCs on the few beats that have them around. I see absoloutely no need for them. Not only do they not elevate the beats, they actually are a hindrance to the flow as far as I’m concerned. But this may very well just be me, as I seem to have become a bit allergic to rap lately, or to current day rappers, to be more percise (and forgive me dear declaime who is the only one who delivers here..).
Either way, big up MPM, yet another score on this lovely series. Keep ‘em coming please.
