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 project showcases Menace’s versatile sound, creating self-contained soundscapes that stand on their own. Though the 22-year-old is best known for “Panda,” the beat tape runs a gamut of styles, while retaining Menace’s signature blown-out drums, unpredictable syncopation, and supernatural sense of dynamics. Listen above.
