I was first Boombaptized sometime last year, when Boombaptist released his Boombaptism beat tape. I ain’t a Christian, but my Boombaptising was a spiritual experience non the less.
Boombaptist (when producing) aka Thesaraus Rex (when rapping) aka Andrew Thaggard (when being human) hailing from Austin, TX, has possibly been my favourite upandcoming beats producer since the very first note I heard from him, and lately it seems he’s starting to draw the attention his beatcrafting skillz desreve.
His brand new EP The Creamixes is a collection of some of his favourite remixes he produced during the last year, seeing him flipping beats and lyrics by Pharoahe Monch, Erykah Badu, D’angelo, M.O.P and more, with his unique melodically rich fat beats and signature bump’d up sound. Being a remix EP, there are way more vocals and rhymes being spat on these beats than we’re used to hear from the Boombapster, but that don’t mean the quality doesn’t stay high throughin and throughout.
It’s a free DL (though you can pay too if you’d like!) that comes complete with a smashing cover art, and you’d better get a move on it and cop these jams before his split 7” with Dibiase drops, featuring his official Guilty Simpson remix, afterwhich you’ll be able to say you were head nodding to his beats way before everyone else.
