SL333P (pronounced “sleep”, but not to be confused with Sleep of Oldominion) is a Portland producer who’s been making waves of late, and a few rappers have suggested I check out his latest beat tape, Vol. 2. I’m glad I did.

I don’t do much any rapping these days, but the warm and mellow production on his smart and consistent 9-track instrumental definitely inspire the flow. The SE Portlander has a knack for clean chops and soulful feels that don’t quite come off as boom-bap but definitely make the head nod. Expect to hear his work a lot in the near future, the youngin is doing his thing. #OutHere
