Take a look at Episode One: (This episode also inspired Committed to Consistency)

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!!

Check out the latest beat tape from producer Messy Beatz with Shocked Phuture Vol. 1 His official second release for 2013. These 7 beats go hard with Trap/EDM style that Messy Beatz brings out.

The presence of the track is some type of a dark trance, that will keep the listener hypnotize.

Messy Beatz recently released, Donkey Kong Project,  his first beat-tape of the year which was strongly inspired by the classic nintendo video game. The mixtape starts with an 11 second intro that samples the game start menu. The first beat is named “Magical Journey” and has an incredible build up with leads into a smooth bass line. “Mystic Forest” has a pretty relaxing feel that makes one feel like they’re on a natural high, similar to that feeling you get when you hear your favorite song from your favorite artist.

The beat titled “Lost” was more uptempo like when you’re trying to avoid barrels being thrown at you in Donkey Kong. The fifth track “Confused” had a 90s R&B melody with a heavy new york style bass to it. “Kong’s Revenge” has a modern day mainstream trap-esque vibe. To end the tape Messy Beatz did 12 seconds Game Over sound as the outro. Overall it’s a solid project. Check it out below and if like them feel free to contact Messy Beatz.
