Bugseed – Street Mentality

Tokyo’s beat maestro Bugseed shows us his Street Mentality.


Some of the best art comes from a limited palette. Street Mentality is such a piece, made up of 12 beats sampling only 5 jazz records. The tracks thread together like an urban tapestry; gritty and unpolished in its limitations. Bugseed thrives in this kind of musical environment and manages to eke every last breath out of the records he chose.
