For this fridays mix we have emerging beat smith Cram.
Born March 1991 in Fukuoka Japan, Cram is one of the new faces in the exciting Japanese beat scene thats been growing steadily over the last few years. Along with the likes of Bugseed, Illsugi and Repeat Pattern, his production utilizes soulful, rhode ridden samples with distinctly composed basslines and the chunkiest of drums.
He is also part of the group Bitter Source comprising of himself and rapper Teezy. While also having done work with DJ YMG on the Black Mix Juice label and released a EP with fellow Japanese producer Atu-2 on London based label Hardjazz 7.
For his exclusive Beatnik mix, Cram has put together the cream of underground hip hop and electronic beats that have influenced his smoked out sound.
