'The Afterthought' - VA (free download)

Ignore the corporate branding and download this excellent selection of forward thinking but still Hip Hop beats. It's a compilation album to give you a glimpse into what went on at the Beat Battle At The Rooms OF Red Bull last month - it sounds like a night we all shouldn't have missed.

JayHats mixed the whole thing and there are tracks from a load of beatmakers I'd previously not heard of but that I'll defo be checking for in the future: J'83, Y'skid, 1st Angle, Jay Bordeaux, Marcus Sebastian and many more.

A Moovmnt With Nalden appears to be some form of beatmaking community, possibly similar to the UK's own Louis Den Beat Cypher but don't quote me on that.
