DON’T SLEEP: Producers I Know presents The 80’s Beat Tape [BEAT TAPE]


This beat tape consists of the remains of project that was originally supposed to be released back in April 2013 but was ultimately scrapped. The original concept revolved around me incorporating 5 different genres of 80’s music that stood out to me during that particular time period, British Synth Pop, Freestyle (Latin Hip Hop), The Minneapolis Sound, New Jack Swing & Vocal House.

The original plan was for me to handpick producers who answered his call after pitching this idea on Twitter then based on their back catalogs assign them all the perfect source material to flip. The process was not only slow going but most of the producers were either not feeling the particular sample sources I specifically picked for them or they were simply too busy to flip/chop/make the beat in an adequate amount of time. The original hope was to have 5 beats from 5 genres of 80’s music (25 beats total) from 10-15 producers then drop the 80’s Beat Tape in April or May. By late March 2013 only 10 beats total were submitted. They were put into a folder on my desktop, I scrapped the project & I chalked it up to a learning experience.

As the 5th anniversary of Producers I Know approached, I decide to give the beats in this folder another listen. It hit me that I needed to finally drop these gems sent to me by AbJo, DaiN, Dayggs, Dertbeats, Duke Westlake, G-Force, Ill Clinton, M-Slago, Maticulous & Trifeckta. So, here it is… The 80’s Beat Tape! Happy 5th anniversary, Producers I Know!


STAY WOKE: Rob Viktum “Proper Etiquette” [BEAT TAPE]


The homie Rob Viktum is back at it with another raw beat tape titled “Proper Etiquette” full of nothing but unadulterated filth flarn filth. Keep the change, you filthy animals!


STAY WOKE: Sky High Fly Guys “Live…Before You Die” [NEW PROJECT]


This is the new project via Producers I Know from Brockton, MA outfit Sky High Fly Guys. The entire project was produced by D-Man (producer of the extremely popular Cuffing Season Trilogy on PIK & iStandard Boston Beat Battle runner up) which follows the life cycle of an inner city resident from his adolescence through adulthood to death and then his acceptance of his transition, coming to terms with it then his subsequent ascension to Heaven. It’s formatted like a vinyl LP or a cassette tape with a side A & B. This album is influenced by both the past & present of Rap music but with an eye on the future. Enjoy. Expect Greatness. Live…Before You Die.


DON’T SLEEP: Count Bass D “Real Music Vs. BULL$#!+ Pt.2″ (prod. by Count Bass D) [PIK EXCLUSIVE]


“Real Music Vs. BULL$#!+ Pt.2″ is a PIK exclusive bonus track from the upcoming re-release of Count Bass D’s 2002 classic sophomore LP “Dwight Spitz”. If you missed it the first time around then do yourselves a favor and discover (or re-discover) it. Ultimately we’ve all been thrust into this ugly war between real music & bull$#!+. What side are you on? Happy born day to the homie Count Bass D. He was born two weeks after Hip-Hop was right in New York. How fitting…
