We’re only halfway through September, and I already feel like I already have enough compilations from this month to last me till next year. Sensori Collective and Con Design House are two collectives based out of San Diego, California, who you are going to want to keep your eye on. Both collectives want to build a foundation to help the underground beat community grow and remain imaginative. It seems like more and more labels and collectives keep springing up these days, helping to bring a wide selection of this music to the ears of listeners who otherwise would have never noticed it. “Habitation” is 21 track compilation full of soulful future beats, and mesmerizing rhythms. Even though the record consists of many of artists I’ve never heard before, I went into this with new ears, and left pleasantly satisfied. If you’re the kind of person who loves to dive into new beat tapes, I recommend picking this up.
