Mydus - Black Album Version 1.5, Gramz - Breakbeast Vol. 3:
Two new mixes for today:
The first one comes from Miami-based producer Mydus (previously featured here. The Black Album Version 1.5, Mydus' take on Jay-Z's final penultimate album, features all thirteen of the album's tracks remixed with original beats. At this point, Jigga's Black Album has been remixed into almost every shade of the rainbow - from Danger Mouse's Grey Album to Kev Brown's Brown Album to Cheap Cologne's Double Black Album - so I wouldn't blame anyone for wondering what was left for Mydus to contribute.
As it turns out, though, the beats on here are good enough to stand apart from the rest of the Black Album remixes. While most of the other remix albums were built around a specific concept, Mydus' only goal, in his own words, was to take "a shot at what I can do with an album that I thought had so much more potential." Mission accomplished.
The second mix comes from my man Gramz, Breakbeast Vol. 3. Featuring an hour of breaks, veering farther into Club territory than most of the stuff I post up here, it's a dope mix if you're looking for something uptempo. I particularly enjoyed hearing Sister Nancy's Bam Bam at about 130bpm:
^You can't come in here and drop a promo like that without more details. What's the plan for the mixtape, strictly instrumentals or is everyone on Beat Garden going to be rhyming over Mydus' beats?
And shout out to Rizoh and everyone who came here via therapup.

So far it's Clean Guns & Triple Nickels on some exclusive Mydus beats...we're knocking out more this weekend.
I'm keeping my lips sealed beyond that...and the Black Album remix is HEAT!
