about

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.

Some of those beats were recorded on our debut album Water World, re released as Masters of the Universe. Some of those beats made it to the Subterraneous Records Presents: Water World Too and One Be Lo, Project Fetus albums. Many of the beats are still on cassette tapes and floppy discs. 18 of those loops are finally hear.
