Stateovmind returns with his fourth solo project The Crate Tape EP. The Crate Tape EP is the fourth solo release from Stateovmind and is entirely produced by Develop from FNQ’s Beat Basement Records.
This five track extended play sees Stateovmind move away from the cleaner sound of his previous releases and take a slight detour towards a much more raw “Boom Bap Sound”. The Crate Tape is a unique twist on a tried, tested and effective formula, and is inspired by a time when you listened to your favorite rap album on a dubbed TDK cassette tape.
Develop has dug deep into his record crates and picked the finest samples to chop, flip and play out on his MPC and the end result is what both he and State have deemed to be a local “homage to the style of hip hop” they both first discovered.
The Crate Tape EP is for the hip hop fan that likes their drums and samples dirty but still manages keeps it fresh even in the slightly scuffed/grimy sneakers.
