I'm not really into hip hop but I love this album. Can you guys recommend me what you consider to be the best instrumental hip hop albums?
Endtroducing is good too.
Don't get fooled by the first track, the rest are instrumentals
Glad you dig it, I've given that one a few spins every month or two since it has come out.
Check out a couple by Apollo Brown, Clouds and Thirty Eight. Not on the level as Rock Creek Park but still good beat tapes
DJ Rashad, not 100% instrumental, but still worth a listen imo.
Pete Rock- Petestrumentals or NY's Finest Instrumentals
MF DOOM- Metal Fingers Presents: Special Herbs And Spices, The Box Set Vol. 0-9
Flying Lotus- Los Angeles or Cosmogramma (If you wanna listen to some more wonky stuff).
Nujabes, even though he has some stuff with MCs on his records defs check out Modal Soul, Metaphorical music and the hydeout collections.
yeah his second album was pretty disappointing. Especially after how long its been
araabMUZIK - Electronic Dream
it's instrumental hip hop but there's a lot of trance in there too
>with it being kinda a part 2/continuation of the first
i'm completely okay with that
i mean i think that's what most people would have expected from him anyways, going from jazzy instrumental hip hop to ethereal cloud rap would be a pretty huge change in sounds
ya but I was hoping for new material not just a rehash of his previous album, I mean everything from the track names and ideas for each track are similar and on some tracks you can tell he used the same drum kits and effects
lee (asano+ryuhei) discography (search in the archive, there are links on flac and 320 kbps)
Madlib's Beat Konducta series
Black Milk & Danny Brown's Black & Brown (it's not entirely instrumental, but I think it's a great start for anyone).
Jay Dee's Welcome 2 Detroit
Jay Dee's Ruff Draft
Metal Fingers series (MF DOOM as a producer, includes beats from Ghostface Killah's Fishscale, King Geedorah's Take Me To Your Leader, Doomsday, Born Like This, Mm..Food, etc., tl:dr, almost every beat DOOM has made)
