a beat tape collective...
Combining the art of beat making and the love of cassettes. 77 Rise is a small, but growing collective of like minded artists.
What's Playing -
Small list of whats recently playing in our tape decks -
Budamunk & Ill Sugi - Spirit of the Golden Age - Urbnet
Masterful release. We return to the project regularly.
Prozack Morris & Headband - Liquid Synths
The title gives away the synth'd out journey your going to experience and it doesn't disappoint.
Well textured, heavy drums and done tastefully. We think there's a part 2 in the works.
Mogillah - Coney Island
The beginning of this project sets the tone, layered with dope sample, beats hit hard with ft. by ProfLogik, Swarvy to name a few. Great listen.
Eighty9's - Maps - Humble Weight
This project has been on heavy rotation for us. Not to sample heavy, but filled with a lot of synth'd out original sounds.
Soul Chief - Adhesives - DCT001
Beautiful and graceful Boom Bap.
Djablo - The Lowfi Dojo - Move Cut Clone
"On his first solo cassette release, Djablo delivers dreamy instrumental lofi soundscapes. The A-side is like entering a childhood dream of sunny and infinite white sand beaches. The B-side (which is a cassette exclusive) is a collage of beats, strange loops and utter nonsense."
Sugar Cane Davis - BIRDS
Super chill vibes, SCD always seems to have the fresh pianos samples in his projects.
MIEKSNEAK - BOTANICAL - vbrnt.
Really well done chill Lo-Fi vibe, plus the cassette itself is a work of art.
7/15 - 7/22 (Small List of what was playing last week)
SPELLWRKS - Mind Gems 3
Dudes production is so on point with some of the most beautiful, floating, well textured sounds.
Kazumi Kaneda - Beat Notes - Inner Ocean Records
First heard this joint with Oso Blanco in the car and the both us were blown away by the quality of this release. A must have if your a true music lover.
Pacific Yew - TREES / B-Sides - Dirty Tapes
Truly a brilliant project, couldn't wait for the cassette to arrive so I played the crap out of it at work. Drove to the Sierra Nevada mountains and just had this bumping in the deck. Another must have.
LOVIBE / Hann_II - Halves - Dirty Tapes
Dope vibe, well flipped R&B samples.
Grief78 - CZAR PARIAH
Had to revisit this project. Dope project all around, laced with good lyrics.
GRIEF78 - "I rhyme and make beats because if I don't I'll snap."
Knablinz - Pine - G.O.A.T. BEETZ
One of the hardest working D.I.Y. dudes in the beat scene, master at crazy sample flips and just plain old raw beats off a 404.
Mellow Wolf - Save the Night - O-Nei-Ric Tapes
Mellow lo-fi beats, chill vibe, definitely worth a listen.
Budget Wax - Infotainment - Us Natives
Good listen, almost has a 80's funk vibe to it.
WG57 - Ridgewell - Mill City - Warm Gospel
Ridgewell returns with another gem full of dope jazz and soul samples. Love the loose drums.
OT-77 - Lucid Minds - Compilation - O-Nei-Ric Tapes
This compilation is laced with a lot of dope beat makers.
OR 011 - Cold Clouds / Misled Navigator - Outward Records
Chilled out, well done ambient vibes.
Ferm - Natsu - Move Cut Clone - Beats and Art
This is the follow up of Ferm's last release HARU and it doesn't disappoint.
