Without a doubt, Koolade is a legend in this game. Since 1996, the Croatian produces beats without ever worrying about any genre boundaries. Over the years he has produced for artists like Ghostface Killah, Sean Price, Masta Killa or Rah Digga. His probably best known track is the still amazing “Beautiful” by Masta Ace.
From time to time he releases a beat tape his newest one goes by the name of “Crewzen”. On this tape he gives us the G-Funk vibes with thick basses, catchy melodies, talkbox and everything else that goes with it. I was more socialized with the sound of the East Coast but albums like this or “Dippin‘” by Shuko and The Breed turn me into a West Coast rider. Get the album from Bandcamp or stream it with an additional bonus track.
In May Koolade released the also strong beat tape “Benches”, which I also attached.
