Vanilla, beat tape producer extraordinaire.

Recommended Posts

So towards the arse end of last summer I'm clicking through some music blogs and find a track by this dude called Vanilla, it's off a beat tape he made, samples from old soul and motown records lovingly rearranged into new compositions. Yeah that ain't no thing you're thinking but fuck me his tracks are actually flawless from a production standpoint, usually with a beat tape the cuts are raw and you can easily tell where a music sample loops. Vanilla is some kind of production ultranerd because his shit just sound so. fucking. smooth.

Anyway I dug up his bandcamp page and found 3 albums for download (free at that) and proceeded to listen to them pretty much on constant rotation for weeks, I just couldn't get enough of them. http://vanillabeats.bandcamp.com/

Also I'd like to suggest another producer called Vanilla who has put together a couple of quite frankly fucking brilliant beat tapes in a similar vein to J Dilla. There's some serious love gone into digging out these samples from old motown/soul tracks and arranging them into tunes and I must listen to them a few times a week. There's 3 sample based albums, either £7 or scroll down for the free mediafire link. I had to buy them, I felt like a crook just getting them for free considering how good they are.

This one is my favourite but that's not to say the others aren't wonderful. This was released this year though so is the one I'm nominating.

So he's released an album of 'outtakes' 2 days ago and it's every bit as great as the other 3 tapes...
