This MC and producer from the city of Vigo, in the far top-left corner
of Spain called Galicia, goes by El Puto Coke (which translates roughly
as The Fuckin Coke). He’s been an active and increasingly central member
of the local and regional hip-hop scene since his early teens.
Now, at 30, he can look back onto collabs with some of Spain’s finest,
and he ain’t even blown up yet. So there’s more and bigger things to look
This collection of 100 (!) beats gives an impressive cross-section of
his work. What I was really surprised to find was the great diversity of
beats he showcases on this legal beat-“tape”. No two beats sound the same,
and they make for great listening because Coke likes to keep the beats
fresh and flips them around every few moments.
