Swiss drummer/producer Julian Sartorius started the year 2011 with a challenging resolution: craft a beat every day for one entire year. Beat Diary is the result of his impressive mission consisting of 365 organic productions. It’s released in an analogue manner: twelve 12″ records, a photo book with 365 photos, a poster, and a download code for all tracks.
All recorded tracks were created without electronic effects, samples or loops. Every single hit was actually played and all the sounds are real – only overdubs were used. Beat Diary isn’t your average collection of (hip hop) beats; it sounds more like Amon Tobin on drums.
The Beat Diary box is set for a release on December 14th in a limited edition of -of course- 365 pieces. Watch an introductive video below to get to know the artist behind this project. Pre-order Beat Diary over at Everest Records and pick your own unique number.
