It literally feels like it has been forever since we’ve had a new album from Black Milk. Whats even crazier is that I get a new album from one of my favorite producers this month and Satch gets a new album from one of his favorite producers, Oddisee, as well. I’m kind of anxious to hear what this new Black Milk sounds like so let’s dive into it. Continue reading
An Album That Will Get Your Creative Juices Flowing
Sometimes whenever I’m in a jam, creatively, I like to throw on some music to help me move forward and get out all of my ideas. I usually needs something that’s easy to listen to, something that isn’t overrun by a heavy bassline or thumping drums. I prefer something that’s simple but the overall product may have some type of complexity to it. Luckily I had something provided for me in our inbox that helped me to get back on the right path. This album called Dust & Loops by Gated contained just the right elements. From the way it starts off with the song entitled Continue reading
5 Reasons Why You Should Listen to Ryan Alexy’s Bright Lights Dark Nights
So I was checking the inbox again this morning and listening to some submissions and I came across this beat tape submission entitled “Bright Lights Dark Nights”. For those of you who know me, you already know that I’m not a big instrumental guy so for me to sign off on a beat it might be worth a listen. So I took a chance and listened to this beat tape because I know we had posted a song from an artist that he had worked with before by the name of KADDIE LAK. So here’s the reasons why you should listen to this new project by Ryan “Ryu” Alexy. Continue reading
The Beat Suite: THC
So Ashley O did this interview a while back and I’m just now checking it out. I had no idea who was part of THC for the longest. This was a pretty good interview.
Chuck Inglish – Droptops EP (album review)
The release of this project kind of caught me by surprise. Now the first thing that pops in my head is will his solo album, Convertibles, still drop on May 31st?? I sure hope so because When Fish Ride Bicycles left a sour taste in my mouth. Chuck usually doesn’t drop any mixtapes except for instrumentals so my expectations for this project were a collage of singles that he released over the past year. Nevertheless it deserves some attention. Continue reading
Start the weekend right with…
Water Bottle Before I Hit Full Throttle
I was once in an environment where the whole town was connected by bike trails so naturally I tried some out. The time away to just pedal and think was a joy. The pod in the ears with the Instrumental playlist on full blast (hey, everyone needs a soundtrack to life). There is one track that always got squeezed in the rotation that wasn’t an instrumental. This track is perfect for every bike rider. It’s short but sweet. Continue reading

Gerald Walker – Live It Up [video] prod. by Cardo
Cardo always, well most of the time, provides that smooth melody. Walker used it to his advantage too. Tomorrow that On Your Side Part Deux will drop, can’t wait to hear it.
An album that I think every up-and-coming producer should have…
I recently acquired Lee Field & The Expressions‘ ‘My World’ album. I think that if you are an up-and-coming producer and you like to sample funk and soul music then this is something that is worthy of purchasing and adding to your vinyl collection. I came across this album after searching for a sample by one of favorite producers, Black Milk. The song that he sampled was so pure that I just had to hear the rest of the album in hope of discovering some fresh music to add to the pod. This doesn’t happen often but after I listened to the snippets to ‘My World’ I was impressed. Kudos to the lovely people at Amazon for hooking me up with so many credits that I was able to get this joint for the price of Free.99. Until recently I haven’t heard anything about Lee Field & The Expressions but it surprised me that most of their music was made within the last 10 to 15 years and it doesn’t imitate any of the songs in their genre from before that time. To provide you with your morning piff I have provided a full stream of the album and a list of samples after the link, enjoy! Continue reading
