about

Do you like offbeat instrumental hip-hop and sample-based sound collages? Are you tired of waiting for the next volume of MF Doom’s Special Herbs to come out? Do you need a symphony for your subway ride or that long walk home from work? Want to know what happens when you put 808’s under a Tony Bennett song? If you answered “Yes” to any of the above, then this is your lucky day!

Grip Grand presents Brokebeat, Volume 1: Mr. Prettybeat, featuring 93 previously unreleased slaps, snippets, and skiterludes from my instrumental vaults. This so-called instrumental album contains literally hundreds of samples, including both sung and spoken vocals. It is, however, 100 percent free of live human rapping. Perhaps these beats will be songs someday, by myself and others...but, until then, let them be the soundtrack to your life.

Please Note: This album has 93 tracks, but some of them are only seconds long. It was designed to be played all the way through, start to finish, with no gaps. Well, the first time, anyway. After that, you can skip to your favorite song ("Um...I think it was track eighty-something...damn!"). At any rate, most of these cuts won't make sense out of order (that's why the track numbers are built in to the title), so do us both a favor and don't jump around too much. I know it's making your fingers itch just thinking about it, but try to show some restraint. Music is for listening...shuffle-me-not.
