Beat tapes can range from mere furniture music to transcendent at times. Same thing with exhaustion. When you’re tired, it’s easy to ignore your surroundings. On the flip, those surroundings can also be heightened to total immersive levels as you run on geeked fumes.

California sample flipper, VIK, is tired. He makes dope beat tapes, too, hence that nonsense up above (gotta fill up these virtual pages someway). Anywho, VIK’s brand new nodder, I’M TIRED, shakes loose the cobwebs, but only if you want it to. On first listen, I did a bit of laundry and started dinner as it played in the background. Hardly knew it was there. Second go-round was on my way to work, and it fucking absorbed me. Yin & yang? Am I using that right?

Who cares?
