BEAT TAPE

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

Published

on

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.

One Be Lo “After digging through my ‘90’s tape collection, I found old loops, samples & unreleased beats that I haven’t heard since cd’s became the popular format. The first batch of records (Inherited from my Stepfather…Ok maybe I borrowed them…Maybe I just took the records and never gave them back, but he didn’t have a record player any more so they begged me to spin time with them.) I ever chopped, are on these tapes. In the beginning when I first started making beats, I didn’t own any equipment besides a tape deck. I recorded samples from vinyl onto cassette so I could dissect them in my Walkman or in the car on the way to the studio with Decompoze. We booked sessions with D.L. Jones, and chopped the records in his basement. He had the ultimate set up which included the Akai S950 rack model and the infamous SP1200. We brought the records over, told D. L. where to chop, add drums, sequence, then put on tape so we could go home and write rhymes. Usually the sessions were 4-5 hours and we always left with 2 beats each. That period lasted around 2 years, then we eventually started making beats on the MPC 2000 XL.”

“Instrumentals to Commit Crimes To” By Sin Crawford (Short Film) Beat Tape

"Instrumentals to Commit Crimes To"

Instrumentals to Commit Crimes To is the first installment of producer Sin Crawford’s new instrumental series. His production style is reminiscent of the old with gritty sonics over dusty drums that create an immense listening experience. Sin uses dialog as a fixture to glue the project together and tell his story without using words. The introduction into the underworld titled “The First Day I Met You” sets the stage of the album over a somber yet aggressive soundscape that lets you know his foundation and entrance into the game was met with resistance that Sin embraced with open arms. Pay dudes featuring international saxophonist Randy Resnick is a standout track from the album. The stage is set to let you know that paying dues comes in many different ways. Randy Resnick’s impeccable skill on the saxophone is evident as his Melodie’s drive the song to a hypnotic point. Sin Crawford delivers a stellar listening experience that will have the listener engulfed from start to finish.
