FatGyver‘s Bandcamp caption of “The Finnish Breakbeat Master” is no lie: not only under his 90s-centric hip hop alias of FatGyver, or by fixing them as a beat-MacGyver in his work as mixing and mastering engineer. But he also rips breaks apart for drum ‘n’ bass (his first foray in the early 2000s) under the moniker of Fanu.
On the first day of a well-deserved summer break (no pun intended), he reached out with the idea to record this The Find guest mix. No rest for him, and 45 minutes of boom bap, gritty hip-hop, funky breaks, and sample-heavy beats for you.
