Thijsenterprise – Night Store Beats

Loosely inspired by the sound and feel of NxWorries’ ‘Link Up’ video, this beat tape is dedicated to night shops. Thijsenterprise takes you on a fictional trip, where he’s daydreaming about meeting friends, playing basketball, or basically enjoying life. While instead, he is buying cheap beer at a night shop again. The only place to go in his current hometown of Barcelona during lockdown, the period in which this beat tape was created.

Just like his ‘Soul Food & Skunk Breaks,’ this tape shows Thijsenterprise’s development as a beatmaker since last year’s ‘Proefmonster’ remix album. He now focuses more on off-grid drums and creates different textures. Digging a little deeper and using a wider variety of genres to shape a new sound for himself. All while he stays true to his original roots and those of instrumental hip-hop, where he even slips in tributes to his all-time favorite producers: J Dilla, Madlib & Knxwledge.

Today’s double drop of ‘Night Store Beats’ and ‘Soul Food & Skunk Breaks’ (thijsenterprise.bandcamp.com/album/soul-food-skunk-breaks) are beat tapes between ‘Snits’ and the upcoming ‘Lahringen’ album on vinyl in November. That record brings together his work as a beatmaker and decade-long passionate work as a saxophone player, creating a head-nodding, off-kilter clash of hip-hop, jazz & punk.
