It is what it is. Hip-Hop is an changing culture filled with sub-genres and the L.A. beat scene is just one of them. I agree with you on some levels but you don’t have to throw everyone under the bus cuz you don’t like video game beats. Plus it’s interesting to see how the NY Fat Beats had all the old school cats and the L.A. show had the new. .

Not hating but most of that was was weak. Most of those cats sounded like they had no rhythm. I know Cali got cats out there with heat too! Where they at?

I agree all these dudes make techno trip hop like music that ain’t hip hop that’s why beat battles out here in L.A. Suck you gotta make trash like this to win. I got some dopeness tho.

god damn man why is there allways hate, post you shit or stfu. If exile wants to play with game noises then he can do that (have you heared under the heavens). There are 9million people in la u think 5 people accurately represent the scope of beat makers and producers

itz all about who can nod their head the hardest (and real-ist)… and the quick “hand” motions tweaking knobs on the gear and such…

that beat from science was hard!

Faces316 October 6, 2010 at 9:30 am

Yo! That beat by “Science” kinda stood out above the rest of them. But that’s not to say that the other beats were weak. All of them were ok but “Science had that BANG!

LA stand up

The LA beat scene – Dilla + Madlib started it, Flying Lotus elevated it, Ras G took it to space, Dibiase took it to anyone who opposed. Everyone else is just filling in on some bandwagon shit.

my bad OHNO is sick with it too! but on that lofi synth tip, to many cats sound like they leechin of Dibiase

I have to say, a lot of the new school video game beats don’t appeal to me because of 2 major things

1 – theres off time, un-quantized rhythms and there’s plain old sloppy – I think it’s easy to say that a sloppy beat is “on some new shit” – maybe that’s true, but I can’t get into it

2 – a ton of these beats are out of key – and not on some avant garde jazz shit, the samples/synths/elements are not in key to each other and it drives the musician in me crazy

that’s me 2 cents

Seems like its the same comments everytime lol…This one style does not represent LA hip hop as a whole. You’re trippin.

Magilakutti: The DJ October 6, 2010 at 5:56 pm

I like L.A.’s hip hop scene.There is something for everyone out there.Im gonna go spend a few weeks out there is December…Should be fun.

og jay rockwell October 7, 2010 at 12:59 pm

That’s cool. Too many guys sounding like Dilla though.

ClearBlue October 7, 2010 at 7:53 pm

so many haters it amazes me

Jackson X October 7, 2010 at 9:30 pm

I agree, too much trying to sound like Dilla or too much synth-laden, unquantized shit. Gets boring after a while.

skript October 7, 2010 at 11:46 pm

anyone know what mixer that is on the dj setup??

Ya Grandpa's Backhand October 8, 2010 at 5:31 pm

Cats are haters cause they state their opinion? Quit actin like an insecure lil beyotch..

ClearBlue October 9, 2010 at 11:43 pm

I’m just stating my opinion as well. Insecure? Who is the one talking shit to people with no link to there music and using an anonymous handle?

Just Sayin October 8, 2010 at 8:43 pm

Instead of worrying about how someone’s nerdy off sounding beats are wack, you should focus more on your sound and maybe you’ll get to showcase your skills at something like this someday.

Ya Grandpa's Backhand October 9, 2010 at 3:28 am

Just Sayin, if ya shit sucks don’t get mad when niggas tell you! I’m Just sayin’. Ain’t nobody worryin..I’m just sayin. herb ass nikka!!
