Beat Tape Tuesday!


Got a few items for you to rock in your iPod rotation (formerly Walkman) for the next few weeks so take a look, listen and get to know these great producers…

Edison – Dehydrated Water EP

This dude really blew me away after getting the KILL SWITCH split with Doomtree’s Lazerbeak and seeing him last night open up (quite literally) the night for Busdriver and Aesop Rock in Oakland I had to throw a post up about him.

Edison Website, Twitter, Soundcloud

Captain Murphy – Between Friends Ft. Earl Sweatshirt (Dfalt Remix)

Also known as Cassettes Won’t Listen, DFault will be releasing an instrumentals collection called the Helsinki Beat Tape Part 1 on Daylight Curfew this summer.  Get to know some of his earlier works with a track from his Ableton (yes the actual company) collaborative release ‘Greyscale’.

Lord Faz – LoVEE the Beat Tape

Some really great meat and potatoes beats here from the helmsman behind BeatTrotterz with a heartfelt dedication…

This beat tape is a tribute to Virginie “Vee One” Malet
(February 7th, 1974 – March 30th, 2011) who was my Love, my best friend, my partner in crime, one of the most talented journalist in the Hip Hop shit and music, the smartest and most loving woman I met in my life, and the only human being who ever understood me and knew me as no other.



Tuesday is Recycling Day and I Looove Recycling!!!

Hey Hey!!!  So crazy weekend; nothing like 45min of sleep in 3 days.  Am I crazy???  YES!!! But just crazy busy that is…well maybe the other too, but that’s unimportant right now.  What is important is, What the Hell???  no Monday mix???  yeaahhh about that, I am just running outta stuff to post so for now so I must go back to the lab and churn out some sub par mixes so I can post them.  Please forgive me…OK, well then just know there will be a new mix posted this week as well as Monday.  Fair enough???  Great!!!  On with the show!!!  Speaking of, my morning show this morning was rather good so take a peep at the archive of it here or check the link below…

Mornings on WPKN w/Jeep Ward Behind the Board & Alyssa B (yeah it’s a mouthful so what?)

OK now Artist of the week this week is a great artist form the frosty midwest of Minneapolis…Dessa!!!  She’s got a new album out and it BANGS…so peep game below.  Thanks as always to Adam;s World Blog for letting me continually jack his site content, Thumbs Up Broznihan!!!

A lifelong Minnesota native, Doomtree emcee Dessa felt a musical influence very early on in life thanks to her Bronx born and raised mother. “My dad, as he tells it, says he found her clapping my hands along with the radio to make sure that I would be able to keep time.” Her mother also encouraged her to ad-lib to the popular songs on the radio. Late last month Dessa revealed the latest fruits of those influences, her official solo debut, A Badly Broken Code. With the sheer variety of music on the album Dessa notes it’s a fairly difficult project to categorize, saying “it’s a bitch of a record to try to put on a planogram.” Also a poet, and published author, Dessa’s artistic accomplishments extend beyond her rhymes and songs. This week I caught up with her to find out more about her work, the biggest musical hurdle she’s encountered as an emcee, and how a run in with a husky, balding, middle-aged man reminded her of the universality of art.  For the full article, check Adam’s World Blog…
