Koushik specializes in making that hazy, hip hop-based downbeat shizzle that you could easily compare to contemporaries such as Four Tet (who released the first Koushik single way back on his Text label), RJD2, and DJ Shadow. What sets Koushik apart from the others is a beautiful '60s psych-pop element that tends to pervade throughout. It shows itself in the spacious panned strings, acoustic guitars, and harpsichords that fall in and out of each other; and the beats have a harder regimented classic true school hip-hop sound, that Four Tet and Prefuse tend to stray away from. ‘The Beep Tape’ lays those influences and inspirations out as series of short loops, rhythms and audio sketches in the style of a DJ tool.
