New Release: A3C ‘Beats & Rhymes’ Presented by TuneCore

It’s here! A3C ‘Beats & Rhymes’ Presented by TuneCore – a compilation of songs recorded over three days at our TuneCore Studio experience during A3C Festival 2014. As the official Music Distribution and Publishing Administration Sponsor of the festival this year, (in conjunction with A3C and iStandard Producers), we selected eight TuneCore hip hop artists, paired them with talented up-and-coming producers, then watched the magic happen!

Check out the official press release here.

Recorded at the SAE Institute and mixed by Art Roebuck, ‘Beats & Rhymes’ captures the independent hip hop journey in nine tracks, applying influences from all over the expansive genre. We’re beyond thrilled (and proud) to present this compilation, and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed putting it together! Head over to Amazon Music and cop yourself a free download.
