Beat Swap Meet Los Angeles Going Down Dec 11th 2011 ~ Performance by RAS G

Beat Swap Meet #16: Beat Swap Meet returns to Los Angeles, Sunday December 11th, for our 16th installment. This is a must attend event for anybody half way serious about sampling and beat-making; vinyl enthusiasts, crate diggers, producers or disk-jockeys.

Blues, Disco, Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, Punk, Reggae, Rock, Soul & World – 12″ & 45rpm records. What better way to spend your Sunday afternoon than digging through some records for some dusty gold?
