Editors’ Notes On the second installment in Gramatik's Street Bangers series, the Slovenian beatmaker chops and loops his way through crates full of rare grooves in his quest for the perfect beat. He casts a wide net, sampling Indian music ("Makes Me Wonder"), '40s Nat King Cole ("Hit That Jive"), and even classical ("Orchestrated Incident") alongside all that vintage funk and soul. But whether he's speeding up vocals or looping fat horn stabs, the end results remain examples of boom bap hip-hop at its most profoundly chilled.
