In anticipation of that project – Foul Mouth has gifted us with some sneak peak visuals in the form of “Ghetto Speak“. Sitting on the stairs of the legendary Hitsville U.S.A.

Mark Cooper – I Know How You Feel Man Vol. 5

Published

Here’s a fresh beat tape to bring in the new year, vibe along with the fifth volume of “I Know How You Feel Man”  from producer Mark Cooper. With this latest iteration, it’s not entirely instrumental as we get some welcomed features dropping in throughout the twenty-one record collection. My personal favorite is the heavy hitting combination of Nate Paulson & Marv Won on “Detroit Ballet“, a fitting title that comes roughly after the halfway point of Volume 5Zev Howling & Monsoon each lend a hand on separate tracks respectively, placed in-between a fantastic batch of sounds that range from lo-fi & relaxing to the perfect video game background music. “Fire Escape” was my top pick outside of “Detroit Ballet” and though it arrives late there was a lot of contention before it in this smooth & enjoyable volume of music from Mark Cooper.

As soon as the intro leads into the first two sonic samples off Denaun Porter’sThe Great Depression A.P.” you move on from vocal almost soul full beginnings into the forage of Mr. Porter’s masterful productions. Sound bytes bridge each work that feels collective in nature as each track melts into the next. Hype drums, synth heavy bounces, & the perfect mixture of vocals sprinkled inside provide for a fantastic listening session, shining light from a project in which rose from depression. Here’s more on “The Great Depression A.P.” via Fat Beats who’ve joined with Mr. Porter in releasing the project.

Grammy Award-winning producer, Mr. Porter, joins forces with Fat Beats to release “The Great Depression A.P.” his first commercially-released instrumental album, containing 17 rare musical gems created during the years 2006-2008. This period represents the passage of dark depression, emotional isolation, and self-imposed exile in Porter’s life; the title’s “A.P.” stands for After Proof, referring to the untimely passing of Detroit rapper Proof, a standout rapper in Detroit’s musical scene, member of D12 and childhood friend to Eminem and Porter himself.

Mark Cooper – I Know How You Feel Man Pt. 4

Published

This one is for the instrumental heads out there! Detroit producer Mark Cooper dropped this gem of a beat tape “I Know How You Feel Man Vol. 4” not too long ago. Sixteen lyrical landscapes span a tape that ventures through Mark’s style as a producer. A couple standouts I found were sample bending sounds of “Best Friends Forever” & the lo-fi ear traveler “Time and Space“.
