OUT NOW! The first free release in Wake and Sahy Uhns’ new mixtape series, Swap Meet. What is Swap Meet? Glad you asked.
What do you do to avoid being bored in the waiting room at the doctor’s office, as a passenger on a long car trip, on Saturday morning while you’re waiting for your boyfriend/girlfriend to get out of bed, on the bus, on your lunch break, and while you’re using the bathroom? Sahy Uhns and Wake make beats. These are some of those beats.
We’re super excited to finally release Volume Five of our Beat Stew mixtape series! Lose yourself in dreamy dance beats and nod your head to the serious future funk. Featuring 10 new tracks from the Proximal crew and 20 more from a crop of seriously talented producers curated by Proximal’s label-head, Sahy Uhns, Beat Stew Volume 5 is our biggest (and we think best) yet. Joined by some familiar names from Beat Stews past like Co.fee, Mat/matix and Solar Shield and a ton of fresh talent like Maggey Pain, Banjax and Gaszia & Xian, we promise this mix will not disappoint.
Beat Stew has always been and will always remain a free mixtape, but we’ve offered it up as a Pay-What-You-Want release through Bandcamp this time because every donation helps an independent label like ourselves and we wanted to give people the option of throwing a couple dollars our way for 30 free tracks. Big thanks to those who have donated already! You can still type in $0 and download for free though and we’ll still love you. Almost as much.

We are proud to announce Beat Stew Vol. 4! The fifth installment of the Beat Stew series takes the listener on a trip through a range of styles from hip-hop to ambient, all woven together by label head, Sahy Uhns. Featuring 10 new tracks from the Proximal crew, they are joined by some familiar names from the past along with new contributions from the likes of recent Red Bull Music Academy grad Claude Speeed (American Men, LuckyMe), Italy’s AD Bourke (Citinite, Scenario, Basic Rhythm), and Beat Scene veteran Co.fee (My Hollow Drum, Label Who, HW&W Recordings). Beat Stew Vol. 4 is also the introduction to a few new MCs joining the Proximal camp: San Diego transplant NOTE (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) along with LA rappers Muttjob, Rekon and The Lost Occupant, who collectively make up NSI.
Welcome to Beat Stew Vol. 4!
