Bottom Crate Beats – “Subterranean” (Release)

Indiana’s Strong Roots Records just recently released Mecanik of Bottom Crates Beats‘ new Subterranean beat tape. Listen, read more below and cop from Bandcamp.


“Subterranean” is a collection of beats that I’ve been producing over the last few months while living in Sicily, Italy. All of these speak to my past as I tried to stay true to a certain Boom-Bap type of feel. I used a lot of vintage soul and funk records to sample from as the basis of the majority of these beats.

I tried to add a certain type of grit and soul to the kicks and snares as well as the overall sound of the track. I like to pay homage to the Hip Hop I grew up listening to, and that has a certain type of gritt and grimey sound quality that hits hard and keeps your head nodin’ throughout the whole track. – Mecanik, Bottom Crate Beats



I'm just trying to make my art and do what's smart. Cake donuts are clutch.
