Like Soundcloud before it, Bandcamp has become the wild west for the beatsman and multi-hyphenates galore over the last few years. Living, breathing resumes of up-and-coming bedroom producers and small-batch labels alike. Look no further than Jakarta Records and Knxwledge for proof. DJ Harrison, a Richmond, VA native with all the tricks in the book, has made particularly good use of the cloud space with 26 releases over the last 6-plus years.
He returns with another stunner on the 21-track beat tape, TapeCookies2. For the drummer and producer whose recently placed suites on Phonte and Eric Roberson‘s Tigallero and Joyce Wrice‘s Stay Around, the new tape offers a smooth and eclectic spread of heavy-swung heat from a young producer on the cusp of a breakout. And it may not even take a word-wielding sideman to make it work.
Fill the donut-sized hole in your heart with DJ Harrison’s dreamy new beat tape down below and head over to his Bandcamp page to keep digging into his expansive catalog. Hopefully someone scoops this kid up and makes their post-Dilla masterpiece. It’s time.
