[instrumentals] tru comers ctr-002 / competition


as you may have read on our facebook page, i got a nice package from the tru comers in the mail this week! i have not been warned about this release before- so what is it all about?

«what’s good y‘all?! It’s been quite a while since our last release and during that period quite alot happened also. about 1 ½ years ago we moved our studio into a new location, added a lot of production-gear; we got into a new world of production and surrounding.

so actually that was the start of this new release event hough we didn’t know that at this time. We were just making beats allday ending up with tons of discs and many joints; to make a long story short: out of those beats we took 10, arranged and mixed them, added 2 skits and here you go: CTR-002!!! (btw they fucked up the runout and wrote CRT-022 instead of CTR-002, goddammit)

gear we used: mp2500, mp2000xl and the heart of our production environment 2x S950 and 2x sp1200. to us this project is kinda special cause it represents the crazy time we just been through. the whole record is kinda like a roadtrip through the last 1 ½ years. you probably gotta listen to the record several times to really grow into it and feel that ish. anyway, we just hope ya’ll enjoy the record!

ohh and it's a limited edition of 300 copies– so get yours now!

merry belated christmas and a happy nuyear!

peace, tru comers»


i can only underline their message– it's a real grower! make sure you order your copy fast, the other 2 releases had been sold out pretty fast. also. as usual i can provide the full record as mp3. and if that wasn't good enough- i received an extra copy for one of my readers!

competition:

da bade snacha aka dbs



it looks like the summer break is over!

hanDJob returns with another dope interview with DBS from jersey.  

«DBS:       Well the HIGHDADEATH song and BRICK CITY (you know this is where I‘ll be) was a single cd I put out on the streets...which did pretty good. Fed me for the summer and half of the winter. I’ve been in touch with Kryme  and if we start to see a demand for DBS then it’s on. Vinyl and everything else. I always believed overseas was the place for my music. They appreciate the art form and have a better respect for the music....»




As usual we come with its 12" from '97 on word of mouth, plus some amazing bonus joints! i love the 12", and «highdadeath» is THE joint (check it out below)! it's time to put this out on vinyl with instrumental!



DBS 12" '97

[instrumentals] funkrischi / germany


another batch of them good beats. it's germany again. this time with funkrischi, 22 year old beatmaker from Saarbrücken.

"i listened to a lot of mixtapes and rap tracks during the 90ies- that's the reason i started djing and making beats. i always wanted to scratch like all the dj's did on those mixtapes. i loved the sound. so after getting my turntables and a mixer, i used to hang around at flea markets a lot- that's why i bought an mpc 2000 xl. shortly after that, i added an s950, an s1100 and an effect board. i love the sound of the 90ies...the crackling of the vinyl. that's why i still buy vinyl and why i haven't changed to be a digital dj.

i have to mention- the soulooption lp has a bad quality, because back then, when i recorded it at home in my room, i had no real possibilities to master it. i wanted it to be born in my room, without any help from outside. i keep it real ;)"

i tried to improve the soundquality a bit and added 6 essential bonus tracks to the lp from his soundcloud page.



FUNKRISCHI «SOULOOPTION» LP '10

1. INTRO
2. INKOGNITO
3. STILL DIGGIN
4. SKIT 1
5. DUSTY
6. JETLEG
7. SKIT 2
8. URBAN
9. DISK ERROR
10. SKIT 3
11. SIIIMPLE
12. OUTRO

SOUNDCLOUD BONUS TRACKS '11

13. BEATBATTLE
14. ALL CITY
15. SAX APPEAL
16. TRACY 168
17. YOU CAN

the prosecution

here's a record i just played at home. 

the prosecution from rochester, ny. while «shady» comes with a more mellow touch beatwise (kool and the gang's summer madness sample one more time), «couldn't hang» is the dark part on this 12". nice jeru sample and hardcore rhyming. both tracks produced by g-wreck. it's from '94 on hip hop alley records. not everybody's taste– but i like it!



THE PROSECUTION 12" '94

1. SHADY
2. COULDN'T HANG

[instrumentals] jazzscapez / usa

this has to be the sadest beatmaker post on my site yet.

about 1.5 months ago i became aware of a very talented beatmaker and emcee from fitchburg massachusetts. 21 years young and steadily putting out dope beats. his concept was one beat tape each month. i contacted him in february and we were ready to put out a post on crates of ag. he just finished creating his website mid march, when things took a turn to the worst– he passed away. i don't have all the specifics- but apparently he got shot by cops in his own house.

i don't wanna act as if i knew him all my life, but still- i was shocked. in my opinion he was extremly talented and would have lightened up the rap scene in his own ways. not to mention what great collaborations with other beatmakers and mc's would have been possible.

«As long as it has to do with spreading around true hip hop im all for it. Ive been at this shit for six years. Constantly elevating.»

i asked him about the mc on some of his beats.

«Yea thats me rapping. I spit too. Trying to get an album together but im a perfectionist so i always feel like i can do better haha.»

speaking of collaborations. before the tragedy happened, he hooked up with beatmaker kickback and self the bluest eye, another emcee from edmonton. kickback just sent me three tracks of them all together.

so, after all i want to take the chance to spread his works for all of you, who have not heard him yet. i offer a selection of his 3 beat tapes here, 1 remix, 3 vocal tracks by him and the 3 tracks with self the bluest eye. everything else you'll find on his page: www.jazzscapez.com or on his youtube-channel. what a potential...

here we go again with another sureshot. it's da low livz from philly.

«Perv:   I was actually introduced to Munk by the group GNC. Corleone, who is on Niggaz Got Beef, is his younger brother and I used to talk with him and Bruce aka Little Gotti. He was from West Philly and I was North Philly. We talked here and there and I asked them all to do a track. At the time it was a Perv track that I was doing to diss various people...»


this ep contains four tracks and was released on dialect records. rappers are mersinareez, twizzler, dirty rat, pure and pervert.
