Today is a good day, because today we add Berlin based vinyl collector BeatPete to the ranks. Pete’s show, Live at Home, will be find him playing, erm, live from home, on Sunday September 6th then every four weeks after.
Pete’s show will plug another small gap in our schedule – he is a real hip hop head, and plays all forms of the genre, old, new and instrumental, as well as plenty of the funk and soul nuggets that are the source of samples in those records, plus some jazz and library music treats on the side.
On his YouTube channel, BeatPete drops his Vinyl Sessions presented by HHV.DE, twice monthly, featuring his latest pick ups alongside some older gems. For about 2 years now, BeatPete has been putting on the Backyard Joints: a party focusing on new and old underground hip hop, the arts of beat making as well as a healthy dose of jazz and funk. The event gives Beatmakers from all over a platform to present their craft at Panke in Berlin, whilst BeatPete himself has taken his crate all over Germany, across the border to Paris, Barcelona, Pila, Vienna and festivals like the Dooinit Festival as well as the Splash Festival.
