Beat Culture is young, hes only 17, producer out of what I would assume to be NYC. He makes big dreamy songs that he describes as post-dub. A tag that I would like to retroactively apply to guys like Blackbird Blackbird and AFTA-1. "Belong" is an ever expanding canvas held down by a single harmony sample and the moments when the drums and synth kick in are inspired. "Useless" is a little more dub techno or chillwave - definitely a track that you can hear the Jamie XX influence. He makes his live debut this week at the brooklyn bowl opening for DIIV and Killer Mike - really wish I could be there for that.
