S/O to Truebusiness Inc. on their release of their first EP.
The Mtume classic tune "Juicy Fruit" has been sampled by way more artists than B.I.G. over the years. It's a Hip Hop music go-to-source, so it's only right for beat:repeat NYC to get insights from Mtume. In this episode of the series, Mtume talks a bit about boxing (relating the sweet science to music making), about the making of the "Juicy Fruit" tune and then some. Then, Da Beatminerz's DJ Evil Dee does his own thing with a "Juicy Fruit" sample on the old school SP-1200.
Barely controlled auditory chaos! That's the first single ("Mamma Said") from the !llmind EP "BoomTrap Volume 2."
Dolo the Bandit interviewed on iStandared Producers
One of my favorite producers in recent years & the creator of the 'Boom Trap' sound, !llmind, drops a dope ass instrumental gem that samples the Bob James jazz classic 'Nautilus'. Check the track & peep what the 'ill' producer had to say about this beat below.....
Two young Memphis producers have decided to make their own lane, and music style. Coming from Memphis where the rap genre is mostly heard over trap beats; however producer Justpaid and Beat Ninga think different. Their sound is very different from the norm, and very different from your usual southern style. If you had a chance to listen to the new Memphis artist Ka$h single "I need more money" you would get a taste of what these producers are capable of. Justpaid and Beat Ninja are also working on two new projects which is Ka$h's new mixtape as well as their own instrumental mixtape dropping in May called "Beat R Us".
iStandard Producer stops by CenterStage - Vinyl in Atlanta, GA where twenty-five (25) hopefuls battle it out to compete for the top spot! Chazzam hits the stage at with super producers Neddlz, Dion Piom and friends. Chazzam's first track "We Come to Party", a west coast old school funk instrumental hits the atmosphere and the crowd goes wild. Even the judges get up to join the fun. "Those vocals!" shouts a panelist as "Ride of Your Life" blasts through the speakers. After much discussion, Fade Majah, a producer from Atlanta, GA takes the win, and Chazzam comes in at second place. Judges calls Chazzam back to the stage proclaiming, "I hope you're not sitting waiting for a deal, man. You need to package that up! Lots of producers should strive to be like this....there's levels to this man." The crowd goes wild. "Patience plus time equals your best. Those are the words that I live by," states Chazzam. "You know I've been doing music for a long time."
