Even though Volume 1 was never officially issued, King Of The Beats was an interesting experiment involving a simple challenge – each crew was given 20 quid to buy records and make a beat, all in the space of a single day. Part 2 features producers from the UK, US and Australia taking-up the same beat challenge, as they film the whole process and provide running commentary on their progress. If you’ve ever made beats yourself then this whole process will be familiar – if not it should be a bit of an eye opener as to how much work is involved – but it’s all entertaining stuff regardless (eccentric record shop owners and all). I was initially thrown off by director Pritt Kalsi‘s split-screen style in the early sections, but it works effectively and makes it worth watching again to catch anything you might have missed in the first sitting. Definitely a nice change of pace to your standard hip-hop documentary – cop it.

Dope idea fora DVD. Would make a good series. You could have celebrity and local producers battle each other.
