  • Started listening to Benny the Butcher, I like him the best out of Griselda
  • Initially made this for an MC. Ended up sampling a lot of the OG vocals though

  • JefDam said: Put together a beat-tape / E.P. doo-hickey.  This a real smooth listen. The "if you listen" beat is my favorite, love those vocal chops.
  • There's some cuts on the new Travis... love this Goodie Mob flip
  • JefDam said: A quick flip of Buddy Miles' version of Down By The River. This is a 'sitting on the porch in August' type beat, I fuck with it
  • Put together a sort of 'making of' vid, trying to show some of the process: And here's a joint I co-produced
  • Highly recommend the new Internet album. IMO they got even better songwriting and production. Also features more than just Syd on vocals. Gives it more of a full 'band' feel. This joint has the sing sing break

  • klezmer electro-thug beats said: Just stumbled into this new release, I forgot all about the Traffic. They do pretty ridiculously over the top instrumental covers. https://thetraffic.bandcamp.com/album/california-love-no-through-road-instrume…
  • rcwinkly said: Theodore_Rucks - who did this originally...it sounds so familiar?!!?! that's Beach Boys "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times" 
  • This is a dope concept, about to check your mix. Here's a few:
  • I mess with the breakdown at 55 sec, and bassline is def on some Bonobo shit 
  • A couple favorites
  • klezmer electro-thug beats said: Duder I think it's dense enough without vocal drops, but it's a personal taste and a fine line at that. I like it. I dunno how I missed Teddy Ruckspin's samba track up there, love it! Good looks man! Idk …
  • ketan said: I like that Saba joint - been meaning to listen to that album. That song reminded me of this from bitd (vibe wise): Damn thats a throwback.. completely forgot about these dudes. J. Rawls has some gems.  
  • Junior said: Mozzy is constantly moving up my list of rappers I check for at the moment    The new Saba is pretty good if also pretty depressing. Especially if you like story rap. Cosign on the Saba, I fuck with BUSY / SIRENS.…
  • Springtime mood.
  • Duderonomy said: This weekend's knob-twiddling: Drums/percussion sound dope, I like how it's reversed at parts. Favorite sequence is the one around 1:08
  • Anyone mess with Effectrix or similar plugins? Thinking about copping
  • MattTracker said: Lotta good talent on the strut! I've been making these beat tapes lately where each track is made up of only samples from one record. Take a snare from one song, some horns from another song on side B. The drums can be to…

  • Duderonomy said: Ableton 9 on my Lenovo laptop with rips from my record collection. D-D-Das all folks! Word that's really all you need. 9 is the truth
  • RhythmGJ said: Mostly hardware. Some iPhone apps for sound sources! GJ Dope... mobile digging sounds intriguing. What kinds of apps if you don't mind me asking? 
  • Btw what equipment/DAWs are people using? I'm on Ableton 9 suite w/ a macbook air. Plus an onyx blackjack USB interface for recording vocals + instruments. Started off using MPK mini / Arturia minilab pretty heavy, but now doing most of the chops wi…
  • Just put together a little visual for this one: 
  • Junior said: Everyone should already have heard this but it's still fantastic Another TDE joint I've been playing is SiR "Something Foreign." Whole thing has a dusted jazz vibe. Schoolboy does his thing too
  • Duderonomy said: Feedback? My usual habit of flipping a sample in as many ways as possible within one track - have I over-egged it? I could probably make two or three separate beats, but I think it hangs together...     This sounds like …
  • A couple from the past year:
