32 warm, cool, jazzy, crazy, lazy beats.
Web Web is a highly acclaimed band of award winning German jazz musicians, labeled as German jazz super group (Süddeutsche Zeitung) and Compost’s best jazz outfit. They have released three albums in three years, since 2018, while the fourth is already recorded and in the pipeline for a winter 2020/21 release.
Last year, in 2019, we were confronted with respected hip hop producers who were sampling Web Web, and shared those beats in the web. Furthermore we were kindly asked by one of these beatmaker if he can use a Web Web jazz sample for his production. That was the initial origin idea to ask several other beatmakers touching hands on Web Web’s great spiritual output.
Since sampling has been becoming a revive state of art in hip hop music again and hip hop producers all around the world, categorized as beatmakers, are releasing tons of cool hip hop beats with warm, jazzy, abstract or obscure samples, we thought it’s a great idea to let some chummy beatmakers touch their hand on Web Web‘s jazz tracks.
As said and done: in the end we‘ve got 32 tracks by 12 famous hip hop beatmakers:
TWIT ONE (FLAT POCKET) / GLAMMERLICIOUS (MAIN CONCEPT) / SEPALOT (BLUMENTOPF) / FLIP (TEXTA) / DON PHILIPPE (FREUNDESKREIS) / L ONE / JAN DOE / C-RAS / SATYR / HARRY CROTCH / DITU / GOLDFINGAH
