Back in 2009, Japanese beat-maker Budamunk released a string of 12" singles and an album with rapper Joe Styles on Jazzy Sport. Here, he revisits his archives to unveil a string of unused beats and instrumentals originally intended for that project. With 21 tracks to plough through, it's a bit of an epic, but the time just flies by. Budamunk's style - glitchy but solid on one hand, woozy and impeccably soulful on the other - is perfectly suited to this kind of instrumental exercise. Each of the 21 beats on display swings beautifully, while the assorted keys, chords and samples layered upon the MPC works comes dripping in lazy soul. Sure, L23.99 is a heavy price to pay, but it's more than worth it.
