The Beat Slinger Series is a set of solo mixes laid down by Grasp The Erro. Grasp is a dj from BC Canada who has been behind the wheels of steel since early 2001. His first live set was a Trance set heavily influenced by Tiesto. Shortly after that Grasp became heavily absorbed in the world of Hip-Hop and turntablism, going on to take 3rd place in a Regional DMC Qualifier. A few year's later Grasp's day job took him overseas to Australia for 2 years and he was exposed to psy-trance and a new style of Drum and Bass he had not previously heard. One thing about Grasp is his diverse background and The Beat Slinger Series is the ideal showcase for that background. The first venture is this Vol. 1, a Drum and Bass exploration including vocal, dark, percussive, intelligent, and ragga among other sub-genres. Other volumes will include Dub-Step, NuSkool Breaks, Glitch and whatever else grabs Grasp's heart at the time.
