– Vol. 2’ is the second compilation by Beat.it
, a project founded by the Italian born but London-based producer Railster. Aim of BEAT.IT
is to connect Italian beatmakers sharing a thirst
for experimentation and the love for that fertile intersection where electronic music meets hip-hop. BEAT.IT
started off as a Facebook group where all the artists could share their latest productions, tips and information – it became quickly a creative hub, an important resource able to support and stimulate a thriving scene.
– This Is Not A Revival’ was the first compilation featuring music produced by the project members. Curated by Railster, the compilation was released in 2013 and starred beatmakers such as Digi G’Alessio, Ad Bourke, Dj 2Phast, HLMNSRA, Kappah and many others. It gained enthusiastic feedback in Italy and abroad.
Now, two years later, Railster is ready to present ‘BEAT.IT
– Vol. 2’: the second compilation, an effort to bring the project to the next level, especially in terms of production: this time in fact, each single track selected to appear on the compilation is
the result of a collaboration between two or more artists, a process aiming to foster new connections across the group members and to generate new unexpected mix of styles.
The end result is a work comprising 20 tracks produced by 38 artists, the widest overview possible to grasp the manifold nuances composing the sound spectrum of BEAT.IT
– Vol. 2’ will be presented on October 3rd 2015 in Florence (Italy) at Grabber Soul #BeatCon2, the national convention on beatmaking organised by FreshYo! Label.
