DJ Premier has released the third installment of his Beats That Collected Dust series today.
Premier released the first volume of Beats That Collected Dust back in 2008 while the second one came out in 2011. Now he has returned for the first time in over a decade with the third installment. It features 18 instrumentals that Preem produced mostly for other artists that didn’t end up being used.
The legendary producer notes that some of these beats were meant for songs by Westside Gunn, Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar.
“I like unique releases and Beats That Collected Dust is so unique. I also love the process of titling a project. I’ve always been responsible for titling all the projects I produce, and Beats That Collected Dust is so fitting” DJ Premier says. “The format is an original tool, just like talk beds, freestyles, writing verses, and just plain listening. I decide when to release these instrumental volumes when they reach the stage of collecting dust. So here we are; Beats That Collected Dust, Vol. 3 is here and vinyl has arrived.”
