studio11 on 03/13/2014 at 11:14PM
Inspired by the rotating flux of Chicago hip hop and rap artists that come into Studio 11, this collection of beats written by engineer/producer Kris Anderson was meant to touch on the sounds of everyday big city and urban life. While the drums for each beat remain street in flavor, what makes this collection stand out is the many music influences Kris incorporates from Dub to Poppy Electro and even Industrial. Whether you are looking for that next potential hit song or the perfect music bed for your commercial or video, this collection will bring the streets to your beats. Also be on the lookout for additional volumes by Kris as well as Studio 11 producer/engineer Alex Gross on Free Music Archive.

As part of the first offering in Studio 11's free beats series we've dug up a selection of beats from our library which happened to appear on Warner Telepictures classic "Change Of Heart" show and other shows in that time. Cleaning out the studio has never been an easy task for us here at Studio 11. In addition to mounds of paper work from days long gone by, we have hard drives and disks filled with droves of material ranging from dance music to hip hop. Seeing that some of the material may have seen its best days, we found no better solution to offer the free beats up via the Free Music Archive and Creative Commons to ensure their lasting enjoyment! In this collection you will find a series of beats that were made in a hip hop tone as backing tracks for television circa early 2000's. You may notice most of the tracks are shorter and tend to "kick" right in. This is preferred amongst video editors for more efficient cuing. The first track "Naturally Smooth" appears on the old production cue sheet above - which we managed to come across while evicting years of paperwork! Fear not! there is more to come...
