Campfire Headphase: WaMoo Papez
WaMoo Papez is a young beatsmith out of upstate New York via NYC. In his own words his beats are "inspired by J. Dilla (what hip hop record isn’t these days?), but takes influence from shoegaze (that Bloody Valentine shit, ya herd?) and various electronic genres" which is pretty much a dead on description. "We Float" is chopped to bits and has a solid knocksteady beat. "Detroit Piston" has got a little dilla soul and a little UK Bass to it. His latest beat tape is called We Float - definitely go pick it up for all your late night cruising needs.
