Fresh Beats From Los Angeles

With the Lakers winning game 3, I'll be representing my hometown with a post about Proximal Records based in Los Angeles. Proximal was launched by L.A. natives Carl Madison Burgin, better known as Sahy Uhns, and composer/ producer Jeff Elmassian, and provides a home for local artists to connect and collaborate. Their promotional mixtape , Beat Stew Vol. 2, has atracklist featuring the Proximal artists and their closest friends. The beats are some of the freshest downtempo/electronic/hip-hop I've heard in a long time. Anyone who liked Mark Farina's Mushroom Jazz compilations will love this mixtape. The chill beats are a perfect way to sit back and relax on a hot summers day.

The mixtape is promo for Proximal's upcoming release, a Los Angeles compilation record called Proximity One: Narrative Of A City. Proximity One is coming out this summer and features LA artists such as Daedelus, Dâm-Funk, TOKiMONSTA, Take and Teebs and the Proximal crew (Sahy Uhns, Benedek, Lawrence Grey, BearClaw and Wake)
