Class of 808 is a compilation by ill.Gates, of his students from his Patreon page, including one epic collaboration by ill.Gates and the whole Class.
The compilation moves from the hard hitting dubstep of ArKo, Breakbeats of Moonsplatta, quirky glitchy urban beats by Satherbass and Mindset, the Zodiak Iller tunes that blend influences of Glitch Hop, Trap and Future Bass, the Hip Hop of Crater Face and then chilling down with Mitch Brady, Spiderhound and Mindsets intricate and elegant beats. Class of 808 is a display of ill.Gates as a selector, producer and this time an educator too.
