2tall – Rebirth Of The Beat


This week’s podcast comes to you from another member of the Rhythm Incursions extended family. 2tall should need no introduction to regular listeners, but just in case I’ll leave it to him to do the introductions: “long time TTR/RI musical contributor, ex-DMC battler/turntablist, performer/showboater/nervous white guy with the correct arm movements and limited knowledge of music”. When you put it like that, what else is there to say?

Seriously though, those of you new to the show should check out the exclusive track from 2tall’s latest album, ‘The Softer Diagram’, which we featured a couple of weeks back. The album is out now, in physical and digital stores.

And don’t forget his previous album, ‘Beautiful Mindz’, an excellent collaboration with Stones Throw artists Dudley Perkins and Georgia Anne Muldrow, which is still available. Head over to his myspace or the newly renovated 2tall website where you can cop it all easily.

As we warned a couple of weeks back, 2tall’s put together an exclusive mix for Rhythm Incursions, looking at the recent wave of new beatmakers that are showing a return, or should that be a rebirth, of the beat. It’s a worldwide ting and the mix showcases it well with plenty of fresh and unreleased beats from the likes of Flying Lotus, Bullion, Uncle Lew, Jay Scarlett, Waajeed, Samiyam, Ras G, Dert, 00genesis and many more.

2tall thanks all those who contributed to the mix and says “look out for the forthcoming ‘New Worlds’ compilation on the Circulations label for more of the same flavour” (also peep this mix I put out a few months back on the same tip).

Watch out for more coming from the man in coming months, including releases on Dented Records (home to the Foreign Beggars) and Terrorhythm (and I for one am hyped to hear this one). Full tracklist and download link after the jump.

Download the mix right here. Strap on the headphones and turn up the volume, it’s about to get bumpy.
