Doctor Zygote "Beirut Dub"
On September 2, UK-based beatmaker Doctor Zygote will inaugurate the Black Acre Library Series with his Grupo Zygote LP. Embracing self-imposed limitations a way to spark inspiration, Doctor Zygote produced each track on his album using only sounds he actually played himself, a fine example of which is the warped "Beirut Dub." The reverb-drenched number is a sinister cut of instrumental hip-hop that recalls '70s horror soundtracks and features a dense, dub-influenced production aesthetic.
