I used to be so much into instrumentals, I probably still have over countless of gigs of just instrumentals. Many of them would be from J.Armz, some of them of albums, and some I just gathered on my own.
Today in my inbox I got this Otis Redding Sampled Beat Tape which is produced by Jinesis and presented by The Come Up Show affiliates, The Mad Bloggers. Check the full beat tape on bandcamp and download below. You also might have noticed I have created a new category “Instrumentals”, since a few weeks ago I posted an instrumental mixtape from Lavish, and I have feeling there are plenty more dope beats to be posted on The Come Up Show. So it’s about time we recognized dope beats!!
Sitting On the Dock of The Bay” has to be one of those pivotal spring/summertime soul anthems. You know it when you hear that infectious bridge part whistled. It conjures all the warm memories of backyard (or stoop) domino games and is about as summer-y as lemonade. Otis Redding’s brand of soul music is timeless. WhenTheMadBloggers.com decided they’d like to re-interpret Otis Reddings timeless soul into the hip-hop realm for Spring/Summer of 2011, they reached out to hip-hop beatmaker Jinesis to craft a mini beat-tape to provide summertime’s soundtrack and sonic interludes. Now that summer is nearly here, TheMadBloggers.com and Jinesis present to you, the beat tape “Otisis”. Instead of JUST creating a quiet, sit-back relax beat-tape, Jinesis’ “Otisis” could very well be instrumentals welcome at any open mic or cipher. Music perfect for setting up your evening as you head out to hang with your boys or riding in the car with your homegirls. Crafting Friday night head-nodding beats from lazy Sunday afternoon ballads is made to look easy on this project. As always, enjoy.
