"THE STIMULUS PACKAGE” Artist: DREDi "DREAD EYE" @DREDi
"THE STIMULUS PACKAGE" is a 26 track instrumental album of experimental hip hop beats. The album features the track “Eastside” which was played by Benji B on his BBC Radio 1 show and other beats supported and played by Mark Ski (FunkbyFunk show - Inspiration FM) and also Tim Parker (You’ll Soon Know - NTS radio).
The intention was to create more then “just a beat tape”. The Stimulus Package is an abstract movie for your headphones. The use of samples and themes has been used to conjure a context and a sense of a story unfolding, without being too specific and direct with those themes the listener is encouraged to fill in the blanks. Throughout the tape this is hinted at, our perception of reality, our individual interpretations of spirituality and also entertainment are examined. But all in an entertaining and sometimes comedic way.
I hope this gives the listener more than just a list of beats to cherry pick from and also enables them to pick out different things on each play and listen.
