Beat-Tape Radar: Jimmy Flamante - Hip Beats Vol. 01

Tonight on another global voyage, we spin the globe and land on Caracas, Venezuela, where we find Juan Medina, who goes by the producer name Jimmy Flamante.

Flamante likes to dual-wield the mighty force of organic samples in one hand, while warming things over with vinyl crackle in the other. Add that to the super toned down and chilled vibes, hints of horns and strings, a touch of compression, a dash of salt, and you have a sweet cake of mellow musical nomtacularness.

Check it out below, it's 100% free of charge if you want to download it and play it in your open top jeep the next time you cruise the streets of Caracas. Like it? Hate it? Don't care? Let me know what you think in the comments section below.

  8. Time had a vaguely oriental vibe to it. Maybe I'm sensitive to it because I'm watching Afro Samurai right now. Either way, I was grooving.
