News: BBE compilation with Pete Rock, Jazzy Jeff, Madlib and more

The Beat Generation series celebrates its 10th anniversary this month. Among those picked to contribute are Golden Era greats (Marley Marl; Jazzy Jeff); acclaimed DJ/producers whose work habitually blurred genre lines (King Britt; DJ Spinna; Madlib) and those whose regular gigs didn’t afford them the creative freedom they craved (Will.i.am). ‘The Beat Generation: 10th Anniversary Collection’, mixed and compiled by DJ Spinna and Mr. Thing, will be released next week.

Pete Rock, Jay Dee, Jazzy Jeff, Madlib and Marley Marl. That’s only a small segment of BBE Music’s ‘Beat Generation: 10th Year Anniversary’ compilation. So we assume we don’t have to tell you how great the music on that compilation, to be released on March 29th, is.

BBE Music (Barely Breaking Even) is critically acclaimed for their Beat Generation series, which featured nine albums since the year 2000. Among those picked to contribute were Golden Era greats (Marley Marl; Jazzy Jeff); acclaimed DJ/producers whose work habitually blurred genre lines (King Britt; DJ Spinna; Madlib) and those whose regular gigs didn’t afford them the creative freedom they craved (Will.i.am).
