Repeat Pattern - 08-09Cascade
Repeat Pattern has been a fixture in the circles of hip-hop from back in the day from his work with Ultramagnetic MC’s “Critical Breakdown” back in 1988. He has on the grind working with numerous artists ever since carving out his niche as a beat maker. Repeat Pattern’s sixteen track release is filled with jazzy laidback melodic beats that is more tease than treat as majority of the tracks barely exceed two minutes but clearly showcase his skills. Each track is enjoyable so you’re bound to stick around for the ride. There are many tunes here that will pique your interest like “RLFS3”, “STAB” and “QEQA”. All have that warm jazzy hip-hop vibe just ripe for a MC to spit over. A few appearances would have been nice but overall there are enough quality beats to hold your interest.
