Album Review : Black Bethoven – ‘Heat’

Detroit, (MI) producer Black Bethoven unveils his debut album ‘Heat.’ The 313 native is from a strong musical lineage, being elder cousin to Black Milk and brother to Nametag, who have both successfully laid some solid ground work in the Detroit scene. This record was inspired by many of Detroit’s talent both past and present, stacked top to bottom with every element Black Bethoven has learned in his many years of producing music, culminating in providing the perfect platform to showcase his uniquely creative, unsullied sound, something we have all historically come to expect from Motown based producers.

‘Heat’ is textured with the unmistakable color of the 80’s synth sound, grounded with the strength of the classic Boom Bap to keep your head nodding, but also maintaining an untraceable experimental edge, unique to Black Bethoven. The emcees also provided that authentic Detroit sound which etched into the fibres of the entire album, collaborations include Nametag, 5ELA, Gratiot Jones, Laticia Moore, Mike Todd and more. The album will be available on iTunes, and other online retailers. For all beat inquires please contact: blackbethoven@gmail.com.
