‘Climb’ by Auckland beatmaker S.F.T appears on the compilation Bearded Beats Vol 1: Beardy & The Beats, a project spearheaded by Leesh & Kina, hosts of the 5 Finger Discount Show on Base FM.
Available via Bandcamp, Bearded Beats Vol 1 brings together beatmakers from all over the world. International submissions by Miles Bonny & T-White, appear alongside familiar local names like Haz Beats, choiceVaughan, B Haru and S.F.T.
In a world wide society that focuses too much on our differences, we wanted to do something fun that brought people together through similarities. There was no set genre, no theme, and no pre-requisite to be well-known. ANY beatmaker ANYWHERE in the world (regardless of experience and with any length beard – from scratchy new growth to full and luxurious) was welcome to participate. Anyone could get on the album, they just needed a beat and a beard.
Lucky for us, we got some of our most favorite people from around the world. We cannot thank these bearded talents enough for lending their skills to our little project, especially when they grew their beards specifically for this.
