Whetzel: Beatology Volume I

Whetzel: Beatology Volume I

James Whetzel plays dozens of instruments and has explored soundtracks and world fusion with his many releases. Here, he begins a study of hip-hop beats. He plays around with placing the kicks and snares in unexpected places. He also uses instruments not usually associated with hip-hop like accordion, dholak, and sarod. The more off-base it gets, the more original it sounds (such as tracks 3, 4, 7, and 9). Pretty neat! Available on Bandcamp.
