Released in 2007. Dutch beat-heads Cinnaman + DJ Jay Scarlett were brought together by a mutual love and appreciation of the electronic hip-hop sound stemming from L.A., Detroit and later, worldwide. The Beat Dimensions project was created to showcase today's most forward-thinking beat producers; some are brand-new and some are a bit older -- from the well-known to the almost unknown. New kids like Hudson Mohawke, Super Smoky Soul, Flying Lotus/Samiyam (Flyamsam) and Pursuit Grooves sit next to established artists like Black Pocket (Steve Spacek), Aardvarck and Up Hygh. The artists were selected on the merits of their particular tracks and there are many more already lining up to drop science on future volumes -- this thing is going to grow and grow. Amsterdam seems to be the perfect place to base a compilation of this kind -- maybe it's the worldly attitude of many of the producers, DJs and heads that are based there, or maybe it's the passion for hip-hop beats and way-out experimentation. Volume 1 includes liner notes by Rafael Rashid, the author of the book Behind The Beat (Ginko Press, 2005). Other artists include: Dimlite & Ill Dubio, J Todd, Mweslee, Morgan Spacek, Dyno, Byron And Onra, Tom Trago, Hearin Aid, Simon Muschinsky, VeeBeeO, Mike Tibbert, Slumgullion, O.Boogie, and Sepalot.
