“Oddisee” West Coast Beats

Taken from Oddisee Blogspot

“In preparation for Trek Life’s new album “Everything Changed Nothing” available July 27th, I put together a “West Coast” beat-tape.
Coming from the city of Go-Go, I’ve always loved production inspired by funk. when it comes to funk inspired hip hop, no body does it like the west. While I was on the west producing Trek Life’s album that inspiration went further than being a fan. I don’t know if it was the palm trees, beaches, or burgers but this is what I was making in LA. Listen, Download, Enjoy & purchase “Everything Changed Nothing”

Producers I Know Presents : AyePee Beat Library Prod. Apatight

One of the hottest producers in the UK right now is a young beatsmith by the name of Apatight who recently featured on the Behind Closed Doors Vol2 production DVD magazine.

Apatight has been getting busy in the lab working on the 3 part series from his library of breaks which he has amassed over his many years of crate digging and the fact he lives yards away from one of the illest record stores in the UK might have a bit to do with it.

Producers I Know brings you the 1st part of this 3 part series in the form of the AyePee Beat Library which is a soulful blend of instrumentation with those noticeabley knocking Apatight drums. Grab the free download from the bandcamp below

Be sure to check the crowd reaction to his Beat Em Upz joint at the Louisden Beat Cypher
