Mahatma X - check these out
If you like Dilla beats… have a release out on vinyl next month but the following is on spotify. Some great instrumentals and sampling, short tracks like Dilla - but with an emcee on occasional tracks who’s really great. The following is a mixtape from last year, available for free on Bandcamp, or through Spotify. Blown me away today.
“Mahatma X was formed in 2013, initially as an instrumental beat-tape project by producer MALK in St. Andrews, Scotland. He would later be joined in Philadelphia by Jhana Gumption as live drummer and Jahred as MC. The group mixes live instrumentation with samples to create Hip-Hop reminiscent of its golden age.”
