For today’s Flashback Friday, we are reviving some beats cooked up by French beatmaker, ćosmicat. These tracks are ones that remain crisp, regardless of how much time has passed. The first two pieces, “nice moves" and "One last green,” are off his Black art beat tape. And “cant.find.her” was an individual release on his SoundCloud page. Ćosmicat’s beat concoctions are structured as smooth as can be. We hope he returns to the scene soon from this year-long hiatus.

Somewhere in Colorado, producer Breakmaster Cylinder, is creating a steady stream of Frankensteined amalgamations, so smoothly put together you would have a hard time defining his unique approach and style. This track “Shuffling The Deck” (a STBB winner) was created using a brilliant, experimental “drum kit" that adds the special flavor to the sound we can’t get enough of. We highly recommend carving out some time to check out his extensive list of amazing originals on SoundCloud.
