Birmingham, England producer Quintessence James blesses The DigiSpot with two beat tapes, titled ‘Rapper’s Delights (Volume 1: Uncut Gems)’ & ‘Quintessentially Billie’, that are available for free download.
‘Rapper’s Delights (Volume 1: Uncut Gems)’ is a 20-track beat tape from the archives of Quintessence James, who is known for his work with artists such as Ras Kass, Kooley High, Nickelus F, & Punchline. The beat tape is packed with smooth melodies floating over knocking drums and live percussion and is also perfect for casual listeners and rappers alike.
‘Quintessentially Billie’ is a 9-track beat tape composed of samples taken from the back catalog of Billie Holliday, flipped for a hip hop audience. The beat tape plays like a documentary, with interviews and real world sounds blending with smooth head-nodding beats, introducing the listener to both Lady Day and the style of Quintessence James’ production.
