Pragmatic Theory – “Raw Theory: California” (Release)
The Pragmatic Theory has returned with Raw Theory: California, a new beat-tape compilation to bump. This edition features joints from Blap Deli, Bayroo Burner, Ikabod Burn, Vladee DeeBoq, Cache, Jaames, Prozak Morris, Sweatson Klank, Dibia$e, Sir Froderick, Perksun, Low Key, Emune, Kaknuckles, Ritchrd, SOul Unreal, and Broke.
RAW THEORY corresponds with the inevitable, if not pre-destined, phenomena in which two avant-garde beat movements collide with one another. UK based label, Pragmatic Theory, and Northern California’s imprint, RAW DATA, have both alternated releases of iconic compilations since 2012. “RAW THEORY: California” is the first joint venture between the two camps with a focus on Californian beat-makers and their unique and diverse offerings, from the comfortably progressive to the classically trained blaps. This is the first of two volumes.
