DREDi – ‘The Stimulus Package’ C60 $7
“The Stimulus Package” is a 26 track instrumental album of experimental hip hop beats from producer DREDi. The beat broker culminates a three part series “The Stimulus Package” in an storyboard collection. The intention was to create more then “just a beat tape”. The Stimulus Package is an abstract movie for your headphones. The use of samples and themes has been used to conjure a context and a sense of a story unfolding, without being too specific and direct with those themes the listener is encouraged to fill in the blanks. Throughout the tape this is hinted at, our perception of reality, our individual interpretations of spirituality and also entertainment are examined. But all in an entertaining and sometimes comedic way.
