RIYL: instrumental hip-hop


This one is obviously for the weeb trash who happen to read this site, as there are anime & manga references on this cassette. The cassette cover comes from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, a hyper-stylized hero series. Admittedly, I haven’t read a bit of Jojo anything but that art style is something you can recognize from a mile away. One of the songs mentions FLCL by name in its title; a love it or hate it six episode show. The evolution of vaporwave in to futurefunk in to instrumental hip-hop seems to have happened in a literal blink. These all exist beside each other to some degree now, but the latter two have definitely taken more of a hold. The use of anime and manga characters for album covers and referencing to it is something embraced in this “subculture”, if you will. Simply put, this is beat music with plenty of callbacks to funk and older hip-hop samples along with using the likes of Turkish singing. [adult swim] would definitely use any of these in a bump if they knew of them. Listen to びざっれ ビート$ EP below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
