Ras_G & The Afrikan Space Program – Baker’s Dozen: Ras_G

Also Available On: Vinyl LP

Fat Beats Records is proud to present the fourth installment of Baker’s Dozen, an exclusive vinyl series that shines a light on the best minds of instrumental hip-hop, ambient, and electronic music. Each installment gives one artist carte blanche to capture their signature sound. This edition features Los Angeles based producer Ras_G.

Every volume features one artist and twelve tracks, and comes equipped with a 5×7” postcard insert that features a photo of the artist’s workspace along with the equipment used in their music-making process as well as a personal narrative of how they got into beat making in the first place. Visually cohesive and packaged with the utmost attention to detail, Baker’s Dozen is a series that speaks up for artists whose craft renders voices superfluous, whose instrumentals alone suffice to make a statement.

Ryan Stone – Topaz EP

Today, I am proud to release the eleventh of a monthly installment of beats as the “Topaz EP.” These beats represent the bubbling of emotions within all of us, rolling and ebbing like the ocean’s waves.

Throughout 2016, I have been and will continue to release instrumentals every Friday, and a remix of a song on the last Thursday of every month. These are the songs released in November.

Tough Crowd – We’re All In This Together – Instrumentals

Tough Crowd originally got together in late 2012 following a good reaction to the Flame Griller debut album to provide a live band for the three MCs ExP, JND and Addverse. Ben Wilson on drums had previously been a guitarist in Freyed Knot, an earlier project of ExP and JND, while Andy Illingworth (a friend of Ben’s) on guitar, Colin Sutton on bass and DJ Illas (the Shedmen DJ) on MPC completed the lineup.

Rhythm Roulette: Salaam Remi [Video] [2016]


Rhythm Roulette: Salaam Remi [Video]

For this edition of Rhythm Roulette, Mass Appeal linked up with Salaam Remi.

Getting his first taste of studio work with Kurtis Blowe, Salaam Remi was destined to work with some of the greats like Nas, Amy Winehouse, Fugees (The Score), Ini Kamoze (“Here Comes The Hotstepper”), Jurassic 5, and more. He’s also worked on soundtracks for films like Office Space, Zoolander, The Departed, and Blood Diamond. He’s most recently been working with Bodega Bamz, Joell Ortiz, and Nitty Scott as No Panty.

After hitting up A-1 Records, Salaam ends up with George Faith’s Soulful, Danny La Rue in London, and The Who’s Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy. Putting his faith in George Faith, he finds the backbone of his beat and then pulls some samples from the others. Joell Ortiz also makes a short cameo to comment on the work-in-progress beat
