Beat Torpor (MP3s)

Two slices of instrumental hip-hop

The SoundCloud account of the Fresno, California”“based Foxwitit is a series of beats, mostly in an instrumental state. They run for a period of time and then fade. They are less finished compositions than raw material, perhaps waiting for a vocalist, perhaps waiting for someone to shape them further. But in their current mid-state, they are also delectable. By way of example, here are two. The track “Fearsome” is the spoken-sung word tweaked this way and that, stuttered to a trepidatious state, staggered to a melisma, all above a shuffling, anxious beat. “Legendary” is more lounge-oriented and soulful, a bit of beat torpor.

Tracks originally posted for free download at Foxwitit is Seth Murray of Fresno.
