"Blackbook Studies" out now.

London based Daidalos releases his second project on Tapeinvader titled Blackbook Studies. The mainly instrumental project is based on classic boom bap trip-hop and electronic sounds while in the background it is accompanied by graffiti themed stories.

Every writer holds dearly his or her black book, this is the starting point before executing something out in the wild or on a restricted surface, with that in mind this is how this project came to life, trying to illustrate selected beat sketches from his black book and present them with a graffiti backdrop.


Never Stop Rockin'

With Never Stop Rockin’ Beamic balances a gritty instrumental take on nostalgic jazzy boombap combined with gently vocal flips and soulful summer harmonies. The complex sample work, a beautiful arrangement and the artist’s sense for musical momentums create a special atmosphere that reflects the Golden Era sound, captures today’s vibe and creates a powerful mood that lives up to the title motto.


"Ananas Exzess"

Somewhere between pineapple scented smoke and aerosols from excessive spray can use you will find the Magdeburg rapper Hypnotize. On “Ananas Exzess” (Pineapple Excess), which was previously published in January 2018, he does not mince words and deals with topics such as drug consumption and life from hand to mouth. 

The previously digitally released album will now be available in a small edition on cassette including all unpublished instrumentals on the B side via Tapeinvader. Street credibility in symmetry!
