screen-shot-2016-09-28-at-12-22-15-pm[MEAL TICKET] One thing I really like about this beat, is giving me the sense of old school O-Town vibes. Southern hospitality at it’s finest. I can see the likes of Curren$y rapping to this. This beat definitely has some good vibrations on this.

[TWO FORTY-ONE AM] This beat for some reason reminds me of the Dave Chapelle show. When he’ll walk out on stage… The beat provides those night time vibes, I can see Wiz Khalifa rapping to this one. I really like the sound of flute, gives it a bit of foreign style to it.

[WEAKEST LINK] This beat comes with the heavy bass and soft tones. It’s a beat thats bit on the slow paced. I found it hard to pick up who would fit great with this beat, but that doesn’t mean this beat wouldn’t fit anyone.

Committed to Consistency is available for download at www.scoutveritybeats.com/freebeattape. This concludes my review on Scott Verity’s Committed to Consistency Beat Tape. What would be your favorite beat off this beat tape? For me, my favorite has to be MEAL TICKET.

#SmaktastikReview: Day X Presents 7: The Complete Beat Tape Collection

unnamed (1)

Whaddup Nikkiisiixxers!! Pedro here comin’ at you live and direct from the Miami streets! Literally…I’m writing this review in my car, on the road, and balls deep in that Miami 5 o’clock traffic.

So why not calm myself down with some music and write this review on my phone. I urge you all to try it. It’s perfectly safe. I text and drive all the time whilst blasting music in my car.

As I scroll through my email looking at these music review submissions, I see there’s a beat tape. I’m like “I feel like listening to a beat tape”. So I do…and here we are…jammin’ to some Day X beats!! Day X may have prevented a suicide in traffic today with his beat tape. Be proud man.

Day X has released his latest tape called “7”.  A project consisting of 21 beats with the duel intention of revealing the story of Day’s life and speaking to everyone who listens. There’s a mixture of jazz, electronic/synthpop and all kinds of Hip-Hop. Although there’s a variety here, this tape’s for the Hip-Hoppers. 90% of the beats are Hip Hop. Whether you like Boom Bap, South, 90s etc. there’s something here that’ll make you nod your head before you even realize it.

The production on the beat tape is very good. Day X is definitely a talented producer and like I said before, there’s something here for everybody. However, it’s extremely hard to keep the attention of the listener through 21 songs. Especially if they’re not a like-minded producer or composer. For the average listener who’s used to listening to music with vocals in them, it will probably be a little difficult to stay tuned in.

If you were to judge each beat individually, you would be crazy not to deem each a solid production. However, when looking at the project as a whole you notice by track 15 or 16 you get a bit ear fatigued. The samples are all amazing and on point but there’s not enough distinction in the drum patterns and overall mood of each track. Towards the end, I couldn’t discern one Southern drum pattern from the other, or likewise for the other sub genres of Hip-Hop. Even though there were other genres on the tape, there wasn’t enough to add change of pace or feeling to the project.

With all that being said though, I can’t take away from the brilliance and creativity put into Day X’s productions. You could literally hear how much of himself he put into each beat. If you’re an artist, I urge you to hit this producer up and cop a few beats for your next project. If you’re a producer, hit this producer up and give him some props. In fact, it doesn’t matter who you are. You should listen to what this producer has in his arsenal. You’re welcome.

Since there aren’t any verses in this project lol…I decided to hit you with that …

Smaktastik Beat!!

Instrumental EP: ChristinΞ – Betty “Moe” Trezza

betty moe christinΞ

1525412_3857725057754_549288314_n

I would like to introduce ChristinΞ, a female producer from Miami. Who set out six months ago. On a journey to set sail on her dreams in finding herself. During this ChristinΞ went through depths of inspiration and solitary understanding. Relocated from Miami to Brooklyn, New York. Gaining so much with her experiences in a new city, ChristinΞ felt the best way to express her story was through her debut instrumental EP Betty “Moe” Trezza. This five track EP is set to set the mood for you to create!

I love her experimentation with sounds, vibes, and you can feel the music. My favorite tracks off her Instrumental EP Betty “Moe” Trezza would be FLYING, INVISIBLE SUNSHINE, and INFINITE SPACE.

“Hi, Betty “Moe” Trezza.”
I remember looking up once. I felt something I had never felt before. I think that for the first time in my life, I was Inspired by consistency. ‘Betty “Moe” Trezza’ manifested days after. artworks-000067792026-ebr2r5-t500x500I may never have a clear explanation as to why I decided to name my first instrumental project after my memory, but I can only hope once you’ve gotten lost in my progression, you understand. Feelings.
As an artist, writer, lover, daughter, friend; and through the frequencies of my (heart) beats, I wish you find yourself in love. My love is yours. I’m here for you, always. Thank you for your time.

Stay vibrant —Christine

PLEASE BE ADVISED: “These beats were created to help meditate. They were not created to be written over. They were created to inspire your writing. As is, close your eyes; Let’s get lost in the cosmos.”

Instrumental LP: Wishlade – You Don’t Care A Bit

you dont care a bit

you don't care a bit
This nostalgic trip South Florida Producer Wishlade takes us on through the You Don’t Care A Bit Instrumental LP. Just listening to the production alone was a journey of it’s own. Only can imagine what a talented artists can do with this. The title of this LP really puts you in that state of mind when you’re listening. Experience You Don’t Care A Bit by pressing PLAY!

For this album, I wanted to step out the shadows of the vocal artist and tell my own story through soundscapes & crazy drums. imageI feel like I needed to have full creative control and make something I felt proud of. The premise of the album is purity. Staying true to yourself and your art despite the distractions, vanity, and influences that tell you to run the rat race or put anything but the love of the culture at the forefront.
