Beat Roots, Vol. 1: Inspired by classic hip-hop, we've produced and arranged percussion tracks, ready to download and use in your music project(s). Created by Arhanta Studio, our goal is to give back to Hip-Hop. The innovations found in rap and scratch music from 1984-'95 informed our creative foundation, and to this day reminds us to celebrate individuality within a team of code poets. Peace!
