Riding the wave of a recent 4x Platinum certification from the RIAA for his mega-hit production "Panda," Manchester native Menace is back with his latest offering The Beat Tape Vol. 1, a 5-track EP ranging from hip-hop to dancehall and everything in between.
Fueled by diverse instrumentals and creative dives into his musical influences and repertoire, Menace proves to be a "gifted sound architect, creating self-contained soundscapes that stand their own."
Menace explains that:
"Most people only know me as 'the dude who produced "Panda," so to show people that the other side of me and what I'm capable of, I'm going to be releasing a series of Beat Tapes every few months. I've been making beats for several years now and my Youtube page is where most people have found my work but I want to make a project where people can DL it and travel with it. You'll see that my beat tape isn't just suitable for artists looking for beats, but also for regular music fans. My beats are songs just by themselves; they're dope on their own, even without a rapper on them. On here, I have dancehall beats, RnB beats, and rap beats, to show my diversity, and I even put a soundtrack-type beat, inspired by The Last Samurai, at the end of the project. i would love to soundtrack a film one day."
With the attention of hip-hop giants and critical praise from mega media outlets of Rolling Stone, XXL, Red Bull, and FACT Mag, Menace is solidifying his place as one of the premier producers in Hip-Hop.
