One of the best curators in Chicago, Neon Pajamas created this huge instrumental project. He also happens to be one of my fave writers so I think it’s best to quote his description of surfnturf. “Surf n Turf is for the people. It’s a nation-wide instrumental compilation that I am happy to release through Mishka Records. Featuring 38 producers from all over the United States (one track per producer), this double tape showcases the production talents who provide the backdrops to so many strong music scenes throughout the country. The two tapes feature producers both established (Blue Sky Black Death, DJ Burn One, Mr. Green) and still on the rise (kILLer Kane, Dirty Up, Jeffro). The scope is massive, as the listed producers have provided beats for artists like Lil’ B, Main Attrakionz, Freddie Gibbs, Rick Ross, Soulja Boy, Drake, Western Tink, A$AP Rocky, Gucci Mane, Mick Jenkins, Deniro Farrar, The Underachievers, Nacho Picasso, and so many more.” He also says that surf is “meant for the beach, for vibrant waves on sunny days. Instrumentals for cloud rap. Instrumentals for smoking excess. turf. is meant for the whip. Cruising late at night through a concrete jungle, a concrete swamp. It’s more boom bap, more slap.” Credit also goes to blackKat who played an important role in this big project.
