Mixtape: Menace – The Beat Tape Vol. 1

Riding the wave of a recent 4x Platinum certification from the RIAA for his mega-hit production “Panda,” Manchester’s own Menace drops The Beat Tape Vol. 1, an immersive and diverse slice of instrumental Hip-Hop. The Beat Tape reveals Menace to be a gifted and versatile sound architect, creating self-contained soundscapes that stand on their own. Though the 22-year-old is best known for the industrial trap bombast of his biggest hit, The Beat Tape runs a gamut of styles, while retaining Menace’s signature blown-out drums, unpredictable syncopation, and supernatural sense of dynamics. From the sun-drenched, DJ Mustard/Dr. Dre hybrid G-Funk of “Summer Time,” to an ambient stomp formidable enough to rival Clams Casino on “Zone,” to Southern fried Chipmunk Soul on “Country Grammar” and “Better Days,” The Beat Tape proves that the young Mancunian can hang with the best producers in the business. The Beat Tape is available to download from Datpiff.
