Beat Tape: Oldschool Future by Figub Brazlevič (@FigubBrazlevic)
Yoooo I been listening to this banging Beat tape called “Oldschool Future” by Figub Brazlevič for the last couple days trying to decide on a beat to post as a Beat of The Day but I like so many of the beats I had to post the whole Beat Tape on the site. Figub’s beats bang hard and I’m sure you’ll find some treats to spit over or just vibe out to, this is that real HipHop 4sho!
Figub Brazlevics Oldschool Future comes along with, believe it or not, 42 Tracks. With this album, you are sent on an exciting trip through Figub’s musical repertoire of the last 3 years while making music in Berlin. Always keeping the idea and the spirit of Oldschool HipHop reflected in his music, he offers a wide range of both elegant, atmospheric and really strong, intense beats. The whole masterpiece that consciously lacks a mastering, was created during the last 3 weeks, when Figub worked on the beats giving his old loops a new sense. Finally, this collage of beats finds its way into the collection of albums published via Sichtexot.
Figub Brazlevic likes the unconventional. This is why he chose a name for his album that somehow seems to be a contradiction. He wants to bring the old into the future. The artists, however, wants every listener to interpret the title in his own way. A special highlight on the album are the shouts by diverse people from Figub’s surrounding (eg. Torch, Nico Suave and Suff Daddy) that introduce each track. Altogether this album offers a wide range of tracks that all have the potential to provide an interesting variety in the HipHop industry.
