Musical Content: Produced entirely with a Roland SP-404-SX, Dust & Loops is Gated’s attempt to “retrieve the immediacy of a certain golden era, before computer fucked everything up.” This tape of short beats does indeed recapture the vintage hip hop spirit without sounding dated or cliche. It’s a fresh perspective on an old way of assembling beats; more artists should pursue this method rather than relying on the convenience and perfection of Pro Tools.
Packaging and Sound Quality: A blue C-20 cassette in a clear case. Includes full color J-card and Gated stickers. Hand-numbered edition of 50.
Available directly from Gated’s Bandcamp site.
