Gorilla Beats is an Artist. When he is not producing, he is DJing shows around the Bay, whippin up weed smoothies ( which are BOMB btw) or in the studio perfecting his art. Gorilla Beats is orginally from New York and he came to the Bay to study music full time.
I came across his work after I heard one of rapper Jetpack Jones songs ‘Trap Hippy Steez (T.H.S)’ for the first time. The orginal beat of the song came from Gorilla Beats first beat tape, “Trippy” aka Trap Hippy which then insipred the clothing brand, TRAP HIPPY. In collab with Slvstr. Designs.
“Trap Hippy is a merge between street wear & festival culture.” – Gorilla Beats
Gorilla Beats DJs all genres but his first love is hip hop. ” Classic rock and G funk inspire a lot of my music. Just because it makes you feel good and makes you want to move.” He explains. You can catch Gorilla Beats at a couple of shows he has going on this 4th of July weekend. On Friday July 3rd, he will be at the HIVE GALLERY in SF and on Sat July 4th, he will be at the MERCHANTS OF REALITY ART GALLERY. If you go, you can catch him whippin up his infamous weed smoothies!
