July/August beat tape…wSquared

Aiyo aiyo aiyo yo you!
I just got FL Studio back (after my approximately 8 month hiatus). I’ve been super inspired and made a bunch of music in the past few weeks. Here’s a beat tape of a selected 14 tracks for ya’lls.
Beat Tape July/August 2009
Features my segue into techno/dance music and my second edition of a remix of Jackz’ “Iller”. Pretty much all these are rough and only 16-24 bars at most but can dEfINITELY be expanded on.

Also…I went to Lollapalooza in Chi city this past Friday and will be posting a review-ish recap with some pictures soon.

Peace, and music love!


The Martians…July 4th recording

The Martians were in Bloomington this weekend. Today (July 4th) they started recording for the new mixtape (coming soon!) Nice and Clutch. Here’s some shots i snapped and put together during the 2 song inspiration-fest.

Be on the lookout for new music!! Take my word for it…it’s a new sound from the first mixtape (Spaceships & Beamz @ Datpiff) and it is sounding riDICULOUS!! The quality is waaayyy nicer, the music is different, and both Jack and Max are continuously getting better.
Peace! and patriotic july 4th love.

Aha…finally. This album has been in the works for (my estimate) 5 years. I am looking forward to it, and for all of those in doubt, check the tracklist and song samples (link below) for the features/producers on this!
