Hubert Daviz – Beatnicks Tape
Who loves a chilled out beat tape? We all do!
“German MPC/Microkorg handler Hubert Daviz was the man for the freely downloadable volume one, laying down some chilled and spaced out beats.
Daviz focuses on more full-length tracks in stead of 1-minute-something beats, which is complimentary to his style. Short intro-pieces introduce you to the basic atmosphere of his tracks whereafter a nice steady beat usually drops in. Although loop-based, the tracks on the compilation offer enough breaks and variations to stay exciting.
Hard upfront basses and spacious pads are key to HD’s tracks, and the beats are mostly pretty steady but nonetheless interesting since the focus lies more on creating a groove than a rolling drumset.” – Niwa (via The Beats)
