Eat Your Beaties: Vol. 23

We are late with the Beaties again this time around, but so what?  It’s basically fucking summer.  Get off my fucking back, asshole.  For Volume 23 we have a maniacally chopped offering from Dil Withers and UPLIFT, a lush Kanye remix from Kirvy, a spacey and masterfully crafted beat by some artist who suddenly changed their name to u space, …

mp3: Color Plus – Pulp

CT homie and incredibly talented producer Color Plus just released this track a few days ago.  “Pulp” shows Color Plus beginning to experiment with house styles, and doing so with ease.  Driven by a very house-sounding organ chord progression, this track switches between classic four-on-the-floor house drums and the more hip-hop influenced percussion which Color Plus is known for without …

Eat Your Beaties: Vol. 17

It’s been a harrowing few days.  Lil’ Poopy apparently isn’t actually a part of Coke Boys, Lil’ Wayne is in the hospital in critical condition, and Waka Flocka got kicked out of Brick Squad.  Its days like these when all you can do is come home and huddle up with your beaties, the only entities in this world that truly …

M|O|D at The Middle East Downstairs in Cambridge, MA

Last night Boston’s unstoppable beat crew M|O|D played a show opening for Rustie at The Middle East in Cambridge, and I was fortunate enough to be in attendance.  They went on at 10, just as the venue was starting to fill up and jumped right into a full on onslaught that lasted for half an hour.  If you enjoy listening to M|O|D’s bass-heavy …

Wun Two – the fat EP

Its not a coincidence that so many producers choose to remix Notorious B.I.G. songs so frequently.  Biggie Smalls had the type of flow that would sound good over almost any beat, so mediocre producers flock to his verses.  Thats why if you want some real recognition when remixing a Biggie song you have to bring your A-game, and thats exactly …
