Joe Beats Diverse Recourse
- Words: Steve Marchese
- Label: Bully
Although there's little in the way of indie-rock remix records to compare it to, former Non-Prophets producer Joe Beats' Indie Rock Blues remains the benchmark of the niche. Diverse Recourse, his first solo outing since that impressive release, continues his trademarked "unpaused" production technique, exploiting a raw, gritty instrumentalism that few producers can touch. Moody, and distinguished by warm, psychedelic loops, Diverse Recourse decisively establishes the Joe Beats "sound"-one that's been missing from hip-hop since its recent, often questionable turn toward faster BPMs. Again, Joe Beats shows his ability to breathe new life into a tired sound-a fitting soundtrack to spring's return.
