Up-and-coming Los Angeles talent Salva has released his groundbreaking “open source” beat tape, Clips. The LP pulls heavy inspiration from audio and movie clips often sampled in styles like UK Grime and southern trap with a prominent 808 structure.
Salva’s unique and much-needed concept behind the “open source” album is forward-thinking and extraordinarily innovative. Everybody is allowed and encouraged to contribute their music and collaborate. This cuts down on artists having to illegally remix songs, forcing an unfathomable amount of underground talent and music to be completely unheard.
Clips references ammunition, in this case the “clips” that will be used to create dance-floor weapons. When it’s released, all its stems will be available on Splice, as well as a sample pack that is loaded with Salva’s favorite drum, percussion, and FX.
Salva has been busy working on a plethora of projects as of late, including producing the lead single from UK’s Dizzee Rascal album Raskit. He also contributed the background record for the LA Leakers‘ new single “Sucio,” which features OT Genasis, Kap G, and Trinidad James.
The extraordinarily talented and well-versed hip-hop maverick has no intentions of halting any of his creative projects anytime soon. In fact, he’s planning on releasing Peacemaker 2 with an impressive lineup of rappers as a follow-up from his 2014 mixtape that featured Young Thug, Freddie Gibbs, E-40, Schoolboy Q, A$AP Ferg, Kurupt, and Problem.
