Pre-order Beatnicks Vol. 3 from Rush Hour or HHV, it should be available on June 4, 2010. Let me also remind you of this exclusive download from one of the included artist.

Cologne’s UpMyAlley continues their acclaimed Beatnicks series with a third installment this June. This time they gather international beatmakers O.Boogie (Netherlands), fLako (Chile), Berghem (Germany), Powell (France), Desto (Finland), Ki En Ra (Estonia) and Rez (United States) for a release on 12-inch and digital.

While I don’t have a tracklist for you yet, first previews are available on SoundCloud, more should follow in the next couple of days.

What I do have instead is this exclusive track from Rez. While not featured on the actual EP, the UpMyAlley guys were nice enough to give this away as free download.

Beatnicks Vol. 3 should go on sale in the first half of June, I will remind you of the release once it’s in stores. If you’re in or around Cologne this weekend, make sure to say hello at the Beat BBQ hosted by Melting Pot and UpMyAlley. There you will have the chance to grab one of 25 exclusively hand-printed vinyls!
