AFTA-1 – “The B_4 Tape” (Release)

Innovative Los Angeles producer AFTA-1 breaks his radio silence with The B_4 Tape, a collection of previously unreleased tracks created between 2004 and 2006. The B_4 Tape is filled with west coast bassline slappers, and synth heavy atmospheres. Listening to these beats, you can hear that AFTA-1 was way ahead of his time, with many Los Angeles beat producers following in his footsteps. It’s hard to believe that these tracks are really 11+ years old, as they still sound incredibly fresh today. Highly recommended.

Stream The B_4 Tape below, and cop the download via AFTA-1’s Bandcamp. Keep your eyes peeled for a cassette coming this spring via via Pronounced.Love & Varied Frequencies

The B_4 Tape is a compilation of previously unreleased instrumentals created between 2004 and 2006. Some of which became songs that were and were not heard. Previously considered lost from my possession, the 21 tracks in this collection are presented thanks to the contribution of Santana Westbrook of Truthseekers Radio whom is responsible for rediscovering a folder containing these and many other master audio files and session files.
