I feel as if it's my duty on X-fated to announce the rawest grittiest beats I come across in my web wanderings. Lots of incredible beatsmanship to be excited about lately, so you can't get behind in your mandatory listenings. Pitchfork just gave Pariah's Safehouses EP a stellar 8.2/10. Definitely recommend piece of work right there.
Dibiase dropped a sufficiently dope album. I know his track "Atombreakin'" will be making an appearance on my Halloween mixtape this year. Listen to this fine piece of bass heavy dilla-laced beat music, Skullcrack. On second thought, why download the MP3 really when they released a fresh weed smokin' video.
If you couldn't get lifted off that beat, smoke some hydro on the D-Lo with this one by Alex B. If ya don't know, now ya know.
While we're on the topic of Modeselektor on this blog, here's an absolute highlight off the Ninja Tune XX remixes compilation. It's a throwback remix of the single off Manuva's album "Run Come Save Me". An undeniably dope song to begin with, but Modeselektor's metallic tweaks revitalize this nearly decade old track with cyborg vengeance. Don't miss the breakdown at 2:29.
