Hypedog Presents: 100 Best Beat Tapes / Instrumental LP's Of 2011.

Around the same time last year, we dropped you a 50 Best Of Beat Tapes post with hopes to bring more attention to projects released by some popular and lesser-known producers in 2010. We thought it was only right to double the stakes and provide you with links to what we think are the 100 best beat tapes and instrumental albums from 2011. 98% of the links provided take you straight to the producers/labels Bandcamp page with streams and links to purchase or download for free. Once again, make sure you check out each link and share this post with your local beat fanatic. A huge shout-out to every one of these producers below for the movements made in 2011. See you all in 2012

  1. where is ichiro " loopshu " beat tape ?!!!!

  2. Dope list but don't forget boon doc - black koolaid ;)

  3. Don't know how I missed out Boonie Mayfield :S

  4. Aw man I wish I was on there you guys have my bro Kaytradamus up there and my DMV brother Oddisee. You guys gotta check out my beattape BeasT ChronicleS Vol. 2. http://www.mediafire.com/?e26bkvtu90cb87c Not asking to give me a shoutout or anything just give it a listen and enjoy it

  5. too much dudes men...

    Astrological: http://jellyfishrecordings.bandcamp.com/album/flux-ep

  6. Nice list. Several omissions but that's due to the fact so many damb projects dropped. Like Ichiro_, Koen, Keon Meteor, Veterano, D-Man, Soulful!, DJ Primate, The Midnight Illz, Beat Fight #2, Beat Power, Resistant Mindz RM 01, Kaseta LP, Paten Locke, Low Budget's "The Masters", Astronote "The Raw Tape", etc. got left off. It was a huge year for beat tapes & intrumental LP's...

  7. This comment has been removed by the author.

  8. Sorry @BeasT @al vizu! Thanks for the links guys.

    TRU @Dart. SALUTE! Missed a few but Masters & The Raw Tape are in there somewhere.

  9. Don't forget this one http://malkovich.nl/2011/12/25/malkovich-beattape-the-grinchtape-drunken-uncle-music/

  10. Yes this is amazing!! Also be aware of IBMCs International Beat Making Collective and Finest Ego (Project Mooncircle)...Also shouts to Malkovich (see above)

  11. Wasnt feelin LAGOS(leo123&Radius) huh? That Samiyam was one of the most boring and repetative overrated releases of the year...#justbeinhonest

  12. http://digital.turntablelab.com/search/?tiled=0&x=all&artist=Lagos&P=1 or oldtacomarecords.com

  13. Nice list overall though, lots I gotta check much respect! Thanks

  14. dont forget Sunclef - The Tesseract!

    thanks for the shout

  15. So happy to see you again ! I was looking for good music...I found you ;)

  16. First off, well done. But the list needs some quality control imo, 70% of these honestly werent that great, and Ive listened to all of them save 1 or 2. You guys got most of the well known ones (Freddie Joachim, Eric Lau, 14KT etc) and even some of the less known ones (Evil Needle, Fathom 9, JuSoul, Jesse Futerman, Rise) so props for that. But youve missed a ton of gems while adding some that were no where near deserving of recognition. Ill stay away from the negatives and say that Teeko's Light Up the Darkness and Illastrate's Eddie Coleman's Friday Night Theme were, IMO, the 2 best instrumental projects of 2011, yet neither of them are even mentioned. Also, theres Chief's Drone Beats & Electric Waves, Full Crate's Golden Glasses, Oddisee's Rock Creek Park, The Midnight EEz beatape,Dutchmassive -Yawn of the Gemeni, Astrological's Far Far Away, Polynesian Dream, and Flux were all three very dope. To be clear, I respect the effort you took to compile this list but i think its missing quite a few substantial works from 2011. Just my take on it. Thanks.

  17. This is a great collection of the best beats of 2011. It’s cool to be able to click on each and get a download. I agree you missed a couple, but everyone hears them differently and has their own favorites. I’m glad to see 14K and P.U.D.G.E. on the list, two of my favorites. They are really talented in my opinion.
