Beats 101 by Ryan Lucht

Music Industry major, HEY WTF Records co-founder, and cassette tape aficionado Ryan Lucht shares the inspiration for his playlist:

“Between searching for new artists to join HEY WTF Records, DJing a 2-hour radio show every week, and just plain old personal enjoyment, I listen to a lot of beats music. There’s a lot of variety and very exciting new ideas in beats music right now, so I’ve put together ‘Beats 101,’ a 20-track collection of a few classics, some brand new sounds, and some of what we’re doing over at HEY WTF. Beats music is amazing in it’s ability to pay respectful homage to just about any type of music – in the first five tracks alone you’ll hear R&B, classic rock, EDM [electronic dance music], eastern european film music, and some straight-ahead 60s jazz. Just press play and kick back.

If you like the sounds, check out an exciting new project we’re working on over at HEYWTFclubhouse.com, or tune into HEY WTF Radio from 10pm-12am Saturdays on WRBB (or listen to previous episodes on our Soundcloud).”
