Count Bass D Drops 'Handshake Vs. Dap' Beat Tape [Free Stream]
Count Bass D resurfaces with some new sounds, dropping his Handshake Vs. Daps instrumental tape for your ears to lap up. The beatsmith lets loose a wide array of sonics, ranging from the wah-heavy opener “Born Day Turnout” to the off-beat swing of “Organness” to the title-track’s jolted syncopated funk. It recalls the day when this writer happened to pick up a copy of the stellar Act Your Waist Size LP and got his world flipped on its ear (“oh, there’s a Van Hunt track? Wait, what’s all this other fonky shit?!”) You can stream Bass D’s latest compilation below and if your ears are pleased, cop the tape over at his Bandcamp. Keep it locked for more from the prolific beat-architect.
