It's not always easy to sell out a show that involves a bunch of dudes playing some beats on a stage; but Beat Society isn't a collection of your everyday dudes, and they sure as hell don't make your everyday beats. Following a five-year hiatus, the heralded producer showcase, presented by Native Instruments and SoulSpazm Records, made its grand return back in February at Tammany Hall in NYC. The 400-person venue was packed from start to finish, but for those who couldn't make it, or haven't had an opportunity to see what the event is all about, Beat Society and SlopFunkDust are excited to share a new video highlighting the February event.
"Beat Society is kind of a unique event that started about 10 years ago," said !llMind, one of the select producers of Beat Society. "It's a live producer showcase with about four to six producers. The event is basically a way to show people what we do in a cool, fun, live setting." Along with Slop and !llMind, notable producers like DJ Revolution, Nottz, Buckwild, Don Cannon, and Khrysis played material for the masses, also sitting down to discuss beat making and what makes Beat Society special.
