Reseña de álbum

The second installment in Babu's Beat Tape series sees the Dilated Peoples and World Famous Beat Junkies DJ/producer unveiling no less than 40 of his studio creations. Much like the original, the tracks featured on Vol. 2 clock in at an average of a minute and a half — just enough time to entrance listeners in their nuanced layers before ushering in the next beat, whether it be abruptly or seamlessly.
