Originally from the UK but now living in Amsterdam Beat Butcha is one of the hardest working producers that I know, his resume reads well and many producers would definately love to have a few of the names he’s worked with on their own portfolio, the list includes the likes of Havoc, Sha Stimuli, Sean Price, Canibus and Keith Murray to name but a few.
This year Beat Butcha took his music more seriously by going full time on his production which ment he also stepped his business game up, frequently travelling to the states to tie down placements and expanding his networks, if he’s not linking up with the likes of Sean Price or Lil Eto in the studio to create some magic, he is most likely to be at some music seminar taking in more knowledge to power his machine.
This is the kind of attitude and work ethic that alot of producers & beatmakers tend to shy away from but for Beat Butcha far to much rests on the ablility to be able to conduct business, not now that he makes his living from music.
He’s not the type of person to lay his trust on someone else in order to get things done, he prefers to do it himself that way he is in control of his future, I guess it comes from experience learned along the way and being safe in the knowledge that if business is taken care of then he can switch back to the art of making beats, and this dude makes some serious heat.

From Jonathan Kim:
DJ and ambassador of all things Detroit, House Shoes, is often over-looked as a producer. One of my favorite Elzhi projects, Out of Focus, was produced almost entirely by House Shoes, as well as 2 joints on the unreleased J Dilla MCA album. Now, we are blessed with a free mp3 download for “Newports,” featured on the fourth installment of All City Records LA 10″ series alongside another Detroit to Los Angeles transplant, Jordan Rockswell.
All City Records LA 10″ Series featuring House Shoes and Jordan Rockswell is out now via 10″ Vinyl, and on iTunes on May 18th!!
