beats unraveled

It’s not often these days that a video relating to electronic music will leave me mouth agape in wonder, but Boiler Room picked up a new series, titled Beats Unraveled, that has done just that. The BR crew has teamed up with Binkbeats, an artist from the Netherlands who painstakingly–and astoundingly accurately–recreates songs from scratch…all live in one take.

His work includes covers of artists as diverse as Baths, Flying Lotus, J Dilla, Erykah Badu/Madlib, and for this Beats Unraveled Boiler Room Edition he’s tackled Caribou‘s “Bowls. The videos showcase Bink’s airtight workflow and knack for getting at the soul of the tracks he’s performing, and it’s a pleasure to see him work through the various movements of the pieces he covers. Check out the video for Bowls below, as well as a personal favorite of mine from Bink’s collection, a recreation of a J Dilla Live Mixtape, then head over to Bink’s youtube channel and hit subscribe as fast as you possibly can.
