After the unexpected success and positive feedback from our first release, “Brooklyn’s Finest” (released 6/1/10), we’re back with our sophomore effort, “THE FINER THINGS” (volumes 1 & 2). Sonically we’re taking you on a completely different journey, however, the distinctive vibe of The Stuyvesants is still very present in the music! We truly appreciate all of the support for our movement thus far, and hope that you will enjoy this soundscape.
I know yall cats haven’t heard much from me lately but I’ve still been working. In fact, here’s my new release as 1/2 of the design and music collaboration team, The Stuyvesants! A project created, developed, and executed by myself, Algorythm, and Darien Victor Birks (Flwrpt). We brought our talents together to produce 25 instrumentals, t-shirts, logos and graphics which capture the sound and visuals of the 60′s and 70′s, an era that inspires so much of the music that we’ve grown to love. We’ve done this under the moniker “The Stuyvesants”, paying homage to our current place of residence, which is the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, New York.
Finally it’s here! This is the FIRST in a quarterly series of short instrumental projects that I’ll be putting out through this site as digital downloads. Each project will be approached in a different way and have a completely different direction in sound — although, this ‘First’ installment is more of an introduction to my sound. Everything is made in either Reason 3.0, 4.0 or a combination of both. I then bring the separate beats together with Cool Edit(Yes, Cool Edit; not Adobe Audition) and bounce out an mp3. Ideally what I’d like to do with this project is to keep everything as FREE as possible, which means if you’re a vocalist, or an MC, Read More »
A few months back Tone hit my with a random call looking for tracks, so of course I had to hit him off with some stuff. I wanna say I sent him about 10 tracks, but out of all of them I knew him and Pack we’re gonna choose this one. Couple weeks later they sent back a rough A capella. The rhymes were crazy so I went back into the beat, added some drops sent him a final mix, and it’s this is how ILL it came out. It’s the first leak off of the 2DB’s “A (2)Dope Mixtape: Empire State Edition” coming out real soon. I had no idea how sick the track list for it was gonna be but it feels good to have cut on there.
