"There is no beat generation. Just a bunch of writers trying to get published." - Allen Ginsberg
Pinpointing what continues to make the 1950s Beat movement so influential and inspiring isn’t easy. Perhaps there is a timeless truth to some of what Ginsberg and others did and said which continues to echo across the ages, making itself relevant in new ways and in new surroundings with each generation that follows it.
Almighty Sion's The Beat Generation takes its cue from both the original Beat movement and from another eponymous movement, a more modern one tied to the evolution of hip hop production, sampling aesthetics and beat tapes.
As a pair of young producers, some of what they reference happened before they were born while other elements entered our collective reality when they were mere teens. The result, the music on this tape, is an honest expression of who they are, what they like and what they want. This honesty is most apparent in the music’s simplicity, without taking anything away from the tracks on this tape. This is after all a beat tape. It doesn’t try and reinvent the wheel. It does what it aims to do well and with honesty. And it’s that honesty, and youthful enthusiasm, that captured our attention and led us to believe this was a project worthy of putting out there into the world.
We hope you feel the same. And that you keep on dreaming.
