Animalistic Beats

Here’s plenty of boom-barking beats and rip-roaring instrumentals; from tingly, toe-tapping electronica to bestial, boom-bapping trip-hop. All these tunes are 100% wild productions.

First up, a beat from eternally mellow beat-maker Damu the Fudgemunk, a spaced-out mesmeric beat from young London-based producer Joe Walby aka DoJo, bumping prehistoric electronica from T.E.E.D. & a trippy instrumental from heRobust.

Lord Of The Fly – DoJo

Move On – Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs

Triceratopless – heRobust

Three chilled instrumentals from three talented beat makers.

DJ Food with a beat to drift away to, Ugly Duckling with a brass-infused beat & a funky-ass groove to put a spring in your step by Carol Kaye.

Trip-hop at it’s finest in the tune Sandworms, a great summery house edit of Bibio & a lo-fi, spaced-out beat composed of warm melodies & crackly samples from Gold Panda, a UK producer with Japanese influences.

Lovers Carvings (Catz n Dogz re-edit) – Bibio

Peaky Caps – Gold Panda
