Tnkz – TnkZ Lost Cassette Tape

Hello everyone,

It has been more than a year since the CD version was out. It is time for us to speak about the making of before memories completely fade away.

It all started after “Jeebz – Kickin’ License” release in 2012: jeebz.bandcamp.com/album/permis-de-kicker
(compilation of unreleased tracks featuring a lot of rappers)

In the same way, our TnkZ’s beat tape gathers some of our favourite unreleased beats made between 2006 and 2013.

Who are we? We are TnkZ. Tnkz stands for Tanukiz. What are Tanuki? Raccoon dogs with big balls that love sake. We are a little bit more evolved because we love whisky and ra-men :) This beat tape concept is just about Tanuki’s life and death.

So yeah you have one of the best beat tape ever made in front of you. You got the “US version” on this cassette tape.The first versions on CD were trilingual : French, English and Japanese. (still available for free on this bandcamp)

We bought and sampled several copies of a famous animation movie to get quotations in all these languages. Then, they were compiled with our beats to have custom vinyl engraved. We mixed and scratched them and were able to build the intro and the outro as short dynamic mixes. It is not just a collection of beats but something deeply thought from A to Z.

In parallel with this, we bought a Revox B77 tape recorder. We restored and partially recorded the project on RMGI SM911 tapes at 15ips.

We could not find some samples or effects from digging in the crates so we had another custom vinyl engraved. It was also made with a vinyl recorder T-560. This one was only for vocals and effects in the three languages. Shout-out to Belush for lending us his voice.

Concerning beats, you will not find sloppy stuff that tend to make one fall asleep. It is straight banging boom bap. We have sampled all genres of music, not only jazz and soul but also classical music, reggae, pop and so on.

For this matter, our weapons of choice were principally a MPC1000 and a MPC2500. Sometimes backed up with rack samplers such as AKAI s950, CD-3000XL, S2000, E-MU ESI32 and Roland s760. An AKAI DPS16 for multitrack recording.

We spent a lot of time and money in this project. To move on and close definitely the loop a “TnkZ Lost 12″ will be released later in 2015.

Thank you for your support.

Dedicated to lost loved ones.

PEace

The concept of perfection is silly. When your focus is on that ideal, the art suffers. So this tape will be played live and off the cuff, to let the blemishes have their shine too. Consider it a collaborative project from Jeepz & Camus.
