Heretic & S.O.S. - Renters & Owners

One of the many projects I'm working on at the moment is producing and DJing for Heretic and S.O.S.'s LP.  It started off with a beat here and a beat there and ended up snowballing into a full project.  I'm a big fan of artists using one producer to keep their project within the same sonic range, so I was down as it began to develop into an album.

The foundation for this beat was just chillin' on one of my SP1200 disks for years.  It sat, undeveloped till they mentioned wanting a beat to "smoke" to.  I quickly thought of the bass line/loop that I had just waiting for a long minute. So, after long last I finally developed and finished this beat.  Although I was thinking they wanted a beat to "smoke" to make a track about "smoking herb," Heretic & S.O.S. took the beat and turned it into joint about being involved in a scene as a "renter" or an "owner".

Ace-One - Rapmonster (Remixed & Remastered)

Ace is on a roll.  (period)  From his collab work, the press and the new Proforms EP, steam is BUILDING. What better way to introduce the "Rap Monster" to those that are just getting acquainted with him than by remixing and remastering the LP? And for those of us that already knew, this is a chance to hear the LP again in a BIGGER & BADDER way. (with an improved mix and remastered be Ripley Recording)

Rap Monster (Remixed & Remastered)
Ace is a beast on the mic and with a title like "Rap Monster," you know that it's going to get "Super Ugly" on the LP.  The joints are jam packed with straight "wonka bars" from Ace and the guest emcees.  Hard beats, hard rhymes... the LP is a monster in itself and with the new mix, the monster has room to breathe fire. Unlike George Lucas, when Ace retouches his project, he actually fine tunes it and makes it better

The beast has awakened... now dig that.

DL Ace-One's - "Rap Monster" HERE.

Revisionist History Limited Edition tape pressing

I'm here to announce that "Revisionist History Vol. 1" is going to have a VERY limited run on cassette. There will be a total of 50 red cassettes pressed. For the moment, this will be the only physical pressing of the project. If the demand is large enough, there may be another pressing, but in a different capacity.

So... how do you get in on this. Well, to show thanks for the support I've received, I will be doing preorders to the people on my mailing list 1st. If you'd like to be on my mailing list, simply go to the Bandcamp page and DL one of the releases. (heck... get the digi version of "Revisionist History Vol. 1")

On 2/21, I will be sending out the email with information regarding preorders. After the people on the mailing list have been given 1st dibs, I will open up preorders to everyone.

This project was the 1st in a series of releases where I take the same records used on classic hip hop tracks and flip them in a new way. (hence the title "Revisionist History") This project had a LONG history in itself before it finally materialized in the form of a monthly release on my site. ( Despite the ups and downs I experienced while putting this project together, it was a labor of love and I was able to work with some incredibly dope emcees that I look up to.

Prince Po (Organized Konfusion)
Moka Only
Wildchild (Lootpack)
Verbal Math (Dolla Bin)
Rusty Redenbacher (Mudkids)
and my homies from Vintage Dope, Ryan Fresh and Luvva-J.

Vol. 2 will start up in the fall of 2014 and I've already got some dope ish lined up for it.

The Proforms - "Here Come The..." Single

The Proforms (Ace One, Joe Harvey, Big Skittz & DJ Spoolz) are at it again with a new single from their upcoming EP.  "Here Come The..." is simply an appropriate title as we've been awaiting the follow up from their solid "Atavism" LP. 

"And it goes and little something like this..."

Joe Harvey's production hits with purpose and energy as it commands your neck to nod.  Once the war drums hit, Ace, Skittz & Joe Harvey trade verses while DJ Spoolz layers in the cuts. Within the 1st few seconds, you already knew, but The Proforms let loose, letting those who have been waiting know, "The Proforms Are HERE."

On April 15th, The Proforms will be releasing their "Elroy Preston" EP.

Keep... It... Locked... "Here Come The..."
