Made for the crate/loop diggin beat head cats and also true roots Dub heads. Started from my ideas of wanting to work with the current ill rap cats, like Roc Marciano & Ka aka Metal Clergy, DOOM, Sean P & of course The OGs that started it all for me, The Wutang Clan. Much respect to the Gods: Rza, Madlib, Dilla, King Tubby, Scientist & Lee "Scratch" Perry as well...
My goal was to make an EP related to where I started in hiphop, the chop and loop beat era of Rap. The difference here, is I wanted to do it by paying respects to the Dub pioneers. I REALLY respect both artforms. Wouldn't be where I am in my studio production or live performance without them. I plan to do other volumes.
All samples are from VINYL sources. Very little sequencing, majority were looped, manipulated & recorded live, while controlling effects pads. Enjoy. Bless
