A Boom Bap Continuum


A Boom Bap Continuum is a hip hop retrospect an entire year in the making. A group of London based DJ’s took it upon themselves to take a decade’s worth of hip hop influence spanning from 1999 to 2009, incorporating a wide aspect of genre defining tracks and bringing it all together into one mindblowing 80 minute mix. The result is a hip hop college education. Call it Glitch Hop, call it House, call it Dub-step it’s all hip hop and it’s all here.

“…the intention behind this is simple: to highlight the lineage of hip-hop production and beat making from the turn of the millennium to the present day, and perhaps shed some light on the fairly quiet revolution that has been taking place under the surface of mainstream media in recent years.
With some strange tags being applied to the current standard in beat making, I feel it it is important to shed some light on to this lineage. This is a journey from late 90s crate digging, to the circuit-bent soundscapes of the so called ‘post-dilla’ era.”

I’ve been looking for something like this for a long time. I want to thank 2tall, DJ Clockwork and Om Unit for making this.
