Beat Tape Co​​​​-​​​​Op – Presents The Foundation Producer Series 014 Introducing J​-​Ideas

J-Ideas is a producer from Pekin, Indiana. He started making beats in 2008 on a Windows 98 desktop computer with a torrented copy of Fruity Loops. He later went on to get a job in a plastic fabrication plant and endured the sweet noxious fumes of burning polyethylene, to save up enough to get a Maschine MK1 and has been a faithful Maschine user ever since. J-Ideas makes mostly gritty and soulful boombap, but has been known to dabble in other styles. He’s usually too broke to dig in anything but the $1 bin or the Salvation Army.”

DJ Nio a.k.a. Killawea is an international artist from Genova, Italy.

He founded his rap group – Zero Plastica – in 2001, with which he released 4 records, several mixtapes and has been guest of international Festivals in the U.S., Cuba and Europe, opening for DJ Kool Herc, KRS One, Jean Grae, Oddisee, George Clinton f. Parliament & Funkadelic, Shaggy, Alborosie and more.

Because of Hip Hop, he also travelled and performed in Senegal, Mauritania and Turkey, where he actually lives. One of latest works -“MammaLiTurki!”- is a multimedia project conceived in Istanbul, and includes a Beat Tape series, an EP, a photo book and a short-documentary.

Nio’s a cosmopolitan and, according to him, Hip Hop Culture is “the most powerful weapon that God and the Universe gave to the Youth of the World” and “Music is very practical way to make and build Peace” world wide.

According to his travels and needs, his equipment is composed by: Akai MPC 2000 XL, Sp404Sx, Laptop, Mic, Pt01 Portable, Serato Studio, Zoom H2, Vinyls + voices & sounds of the environment he’s around to. Also musicians are playing a fundamental rule into adding more Soul to Nio’s beats.

Beat Tape Co-Op & Various Producers – The Black Book Tape

The Black Book Tape has taken some time to come together… but I don’t think it will ever be completed. The idea started roughly 3 years ago to have a blank cassette inside a black book and have it sent out to various producers to record anything they wanted on it. Along with recording on the tape I also said feel free to tag the book. Well… fast forward to the present and after some hiccups and delays I decided to just release what has been record so far on the cassette. The cassette will always be available to any producers in the states to record anything you want on it, until the cassette is full. I hope everyone enjoys what is available for your listening pleasure thus far and hope people can envision the idea I had for the project. It’s a one of a kind book & soundtrack. Enjoy

Donations are always welcomed…Thank You
