SOULOUIS750

It’s finally here! Foul Mouth’s debut beat tape “Soul Louis” dropped back as it struck midnight ushering in June 20th and it has been a whirlwind of activity for the entire creative team behind it ever since. “Soul Louis” is a collection of 20 raw soul stirring beats that both celebrate and showcase the historical, cultural and musical contributions of Detroit, Michigan. All beats were produced by Foul Mouth. The project was co-executive produced by myself and Pat “313” Deegan and the art direction/graphic design was done by Cancer Ugly of EyesBleedDefiance. Not only did he bless the front & back covers of the project but he also shot & edited the video for the beat “Detroit Gospel” off “Soul Louis”. Stream “Soul Louis” below and check out the gorgeous video as well. Limited edition cassette tapes are forthcoming. Don’t sleep…

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

PIKBLACK500

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

00-live_before_you_die_(front_cover)

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.
