DON’T SLEEP: Melting Pot Music/A.U.D.D.A. “Beat Fight #2” [INSTRUMENTAL ALBUM]

I’m sure you all have seen my multiple posts concerning the Beat Fight 2 event that happened in Cologne recently (including the live videos from said event that have since been removed from YouTube by show promoters Mixery Raw Deluxe). Well, the beat tape/instrumental project including each slap played at said event is going on sale in both digital and vinyl formats (though it’s limited to only 500 copies). You just stream and buy the “Beat Fight #2” project direct from the Bandcamp page or cop the vinyl through a link provided on the same page. Beats from Dexter, Fid Mella, Shuko, feux, Mainloop, TiKay One, Jimbo Matsumoto, Morlockko Plus, Croop, Mecs Treem, Radsch and Hieronymuz. Don’t sleep!

DON’T SLEEP: Dexter “Hammuroes” (prod. by Dexter) [INSTRUMENTAL]

Remember “Beat Fight #2” that happened in Cologne back in late October? This is one of the beats Dexter pulled out at said event. It’s called “Hammuroes” and it bangs. Don’t sleep!

DON’T SLEEP: Brenk Sinatra “One Daaay” (prod. by Brenk Sinatra) [VIDEO]

Brenk Sinatra’s “One Daaay” is off his extraordinary Melting Pot Music/A.U.D.D.A. instrumental LP “Gumbo 2: Pretty Ugly”. This video is dope, too. Don’t sleep!

DON’T SLEEP: Suff Daddy “Dutch Passion 2006” [BEAT TAPE]

New beat tape from Suff Daddy called “Dutch Passion 2006” consisting of 5 raw slaps. Since SoundCloud refuses to embed go there to hear it and download it. Don’t sleep!

DON’T SLEEP: Brenk Sinatra “Whereva” (prod. by Brenk Sinatra) [VIDEO]

Here’s the new video from Brenk Sinatra’s Melting Pot Music release “Gumbo 2 (Pretty Ugly)”. The track is called “Whereva”. If you don’t have this album yet you should really consider inflicting some sort of corporal harm to yourself. Don’t sleep…

DON’T SLEEP: Beatfight II: Dexter vs. Shuko & Dexter x Fidmella Live Sets @ Club Bahnhof (Cologne, Germany) 10.29.2011 [BEAT VIDEOS]

I posted the preview video up to this event earlier this month on Producers I Know because I loved Beatfight I so much last year when Dexter won in dramatic fashion. I waited for some footage to finally hit the net but I fell asleep (as I’d mentioned previously). Here’s some footage of the semifinal round and live sets at the end involving Dexter (last year’s champion), Shuko and then Melting Pot Music’s Fidmella. Don’t sleep on this footage of Beatfight II!

DON’T SLEEP: Brenk Sinatra “Wolves 2 (Still Hungry)” (prod. by Brenk Sinatra) [VIDEO]

Here’s the video for the under 2 minute banger “Wolves 2 (Still Hungry)” off Brenk Sinatra’s stellar Melting Pot Music LP “Gumbo 2: Pretty Ugly”. I can’t wait to hear Brenk’s work on MC Eiht’s upcoming project, either. DON’T SLEEP!

DON’T SLEEP: ENTBS “Irgendwas Mit Medien” OST [NEW PROJECT]

In addition to the new Hulk Hodn x Hubert Daviz double vinyl (that isn’t available for purchase digitally until November 4th, 2011) “Kaseta” ENTBS/Entourage of Germany also released an impressive limited vinyl soundtrack for a German stage play “Irgendwas Mit Medien” that I think you had to purchase in person at the venue during and after performances. In any event, I ended up with a copy and it’s fuckin’ amazing. If you can get your hands on this “Irgendwas Mit Medien OST” from ENTBS/Entourage with production by Hulk Hodn, Hubert Daviz, Noyland, Retrogott & Romeo Jesus then bless you. It’s hard as hell to find but SO worth it. Don’t sleep…

DON’T SLEEP: Sylabil Spill & Twit One “Entengang EP” [PROJECT]

German emcee Sylabil Spill spits over 8 hot beats from Twit Uno with Hulk Hodn on the cuts.  Two instrumentals are included for extra measure on the vinyl version which was limited to 500 copies on the initial printing. This actually dropped on vinyl and CD in Europe back in the late summer (between July and August) but I didn’t get to hear it until recently (meaning this week). You can cop and preview it from HHV and cop it on CD from there or Vinylism or Groove Attack overseas. It’s not on iTunes (maybe the German store) so good luck finding it digitally it’s for Hip Hop heads I’d recommend it if you can find it. Don’t sleep!

DON’T SLEEP: Fulgeance “London Falling” (prod. by Fulgeance) [SINGLE]

On November 11th, 2011 Fulgeance’s debut LP “To All Of You” drops on Melting Pot Music. I’ve been listening to Fulgeance for years and it’s amazing that given the amount of material he’s put out and the number of shows he’s done that this is his debut album finally coming to fruition. Expect to see it up on Bandcamp soon and all over the Melting Pot Music site. DON’T SLEEP!

DON’T SLEEP: Hulk Hodn x Hubert Daviz “Kaseta” [NEW UPCOMING ALBUM]

Yeah, turns out that my German isn’t that good after all. I thought that the new Hulk Hodn x Hubert Daviz “Kaseta” double LP vinyl release happened today. Nope, it’s just the day pre-orders begin as the project will officially drop on November 4th, 2011. Oddly enough, Pre-orders will ship by or on October 21st, which is dumb early. You’ll have to wait until November 4th for the digital release, however…

This tape based collaborative instrumental project will be released on double vinyl. Four sides, 23 slaps produced and then distributed and two dying mediums in a digital age. I love the idea. You can cop “Kaseta” from HHV, Vinylism, & ENTBS if you can figure out where the pre-order link is for the Collector’s Club they mention. DON’T SLEEP!

DON’T SLEEP: Sola Rosa “Get It Together” [NEW PROJECT]

Melting Pot Music’s latest signing out of New Zealand is an R&B/Soul/Funk/Jazz outfit by the name of Sola Rosa. They just recently released an incredible project called “Get It Together” where they showcase their versatility to the fullest. They dip in and out between genres and put together some excellent soundscapes for various vocalists and instrumental pieces alike. I suggest that you not sleep on “Get It Together”. The Bandcamp link is embedded so you can stream it and cop it if you feel so inclined.

DON’T SLEEP: ENTBS “Irgendwas mit Meiden” OST (Snippet) [INSTRUMENTAL]

Here’s a 5 minute snippet from the soundtrack to a German film called “Irgendas mit Weiden” that features production from Hulk Hodn, Hubert Daviz, Noyland, Retrogott & Romeo Jesus. Apparently the film and/or the vinyl drops the same day “Kaseta” does on the ENTBS site, October 14th, 2011. Can’t wait until this all actually makes sense! DON’T SLEEP!

One.


DON’T SLEEP: A.U.D.D.A. “C.R.E.A.M. (Cash Ruins Everything Around Me)” [BEAT TAPE]

A.U.D.D.A. Records dropped a free beat tape/mini EP called “C.R.E.A.M. (Cash Ruins Everything Around Me)” featuring 7 slaps from Hulk Hodn, Suff Daddy, Twit Uno, Roy Blak, Lazy Jones, Herbert Elch, Fela Krauti & Meshuggie Otis. If you slept on “Beat Power” then don’t sleep on this. Get it from Twit One’s blog. DON’T SLEEP!

DON’T SLEEP: Brenk Sinatra “Gumbo 2: Pretty Ugly” [NEW INSTRUMENTAL PROJECT]

Brenk Sinatra‘s long awaited and highly anticipated (at least by hardcore beatheads & Melting Pot Music fans) new September 23rd, 2011 release “Gumbo 2: Pretty Ugly” has just hit Bandcamp early this morning. You can still pre-order it directly from MPM Site or HHV before it’s available for purchase via digital marketplaces like iTunes, Amazon, etc. All this heat for only £8 (or is it Euros)? Don’t sleep!

KanKick is dropping a brand new album of 14 raw instrumentals on vinyl via Melting Pot Music right under heads’ noses! I’m a huge KanKick fan and I just found out this vinyl was available about 30 minutes ago for God’s sake! Check out the snippets @ HHV and cop it from MPM Site, HHV.de, or Groove Attack. It should also hit Bandcamp & iTunes at some point soon. It’s also available now so don’t sleep! Videos embedded below:

As of July 12th, you can now cop “Lumberjack Soul” from Amazon, iTunes, Rush Hour, UGHH and every reputable digital marketplace. Don’t sleep!

DON’T SLEEP: Full Crate & Mar “2U4U Live In New York” [VIDEO]

The dynamic duo from Amsterdam Full Crate & Mar perform “2U4U” live in their debut performance in New York and the crowd loves what they hear. Go see it here on Vimeo since it still won’t embed on the site. I need to figure out what the damb issue is with that. Don’t sleep…

DON’T SLEEP: Brenk Sinatra “Gumbo II (Pretty Ugly) Preview” [BEAT VIDEOS]

You are now watching the video for Brenk Sinatra‘s lead single “Perdido” off of his upcoming Melting Pot Music LP “Gumbo II (Pretty Ugly)” which drops on September 2nd, 2011. The second video is from Juice who provided footage of the Splash! Festival sponsored by Splash! Magazine which features beats from Brenk Sinatra’s album as well. In short, this is a makeshift “Gumbo II (Pretty Ugly)” album preview. Enjoy:

DON’T SLEEP: Brenk “Predido” (prod. by Brenk) [SINGLE]

I was on BoomBap.org looking @ Twit One’s Workspaces feature two days ago. I went to show my brother said post yesterday morning (to prove he uses an MPC 500) and I saw this new Brenk Sinatra jawn called “Predido” from his forthcoming album dropping on September 2nd, 2011 “Gumbo 2 (Pretty Ugly)” up there. I decided to help them (BoomBap.org) spread it so I posted it up on my site since Rap Ohne Lizenz had already done the same.

I did think it was weird that Melting Pot Music sent their lead single to another site rather than just post it up on their own Soundcloud page first. When I saw BoomBap.org change their post a few hours later and take the song down I immediately erased my initial post. Just goes to show you that even the experienced cats in this blog shit can get caught out there from time to time. Don’t sleep on Brenk or Melting Pot Music you sad excuses for music fans.
