Spotlight: Team Supreme


I recently discovered Team Supreme on SoundCloud and haven’t been able to stop listening. This beat-making collective, made up of eighteen producers, operates under the following guidelines: 

“Every week a different producer picks two samples and a BPM. 

The files get passed around, and everybody uses the guidelines to make a beat. 

Cyphers drop Tuesdays.”

All I can say is, wow. This is exactly the kind of creativity that drives emerging music. On a weekly basis these guys lock in a great mix of hip-hop, futurebass, fusion, and trap that defies boundaries and provides the listener with about fifteen minutes of mind-blowing music. I’d highly recommend for fans of The Gaslamp Killer (Low End Theory), Diplo, Flying Lotus, and Death Grips. I expect they’ll be heavy on the radar in 2013.

They’ve got a show on January 29th at the Echo – make sure you come check it out!
