Sev Seveer - Shelfie Baps II
Sev Seveer is a hardware beat maker from Chicago. He is a resident of the Chicago-based Push Beats collective and has been featured at SXSW, Beat Cinema, the Toledo Museum of Contemporary Art, Exploded Drawing, and by the Chicago Tribune.
While he is generally known for his academic approach to thoughtful, experimental projects, Shelfie Baps II is a hard hitting compilation made mostly of battle beats and shelved instrumentals for rap projects. The Shelfie Baps series consists of unreleased and rarely heard instrumentals made over longer spans of time.
This is Sev Seveer’s second 12" LP and third official release, all released on Beats of All-Nations.
We shared the decks with Catherine Perez (aka La Gata) to mix up tropical vibes on vinyl at Punch House in Pilsen on 18 January, 2019. Currently based in Chicago, we celebrated her last set in the city as she prepares to move to Sao Paulo, Brazil. We also partied it up with our dear friend Gina Martinez to welcome another spin around the sun. "Selective Listening" is a beautiful moniker loosely translated to "Oido Selectivo" in Spanish.
