Detras del "Ghetto Dreams" de Common y Nas

Imagino que todos habreis escuchado ya el single de Common con Nas titulado "Ghetto Dreams"

Pues bien, aqui está un video en el estudio cuando se gestaba el tema y demás, con todos los participantes hablando sobre ello.


14KT (@14KT) en el estudio con AB

Esto ya sale un poco de la serie enseñando estudios y es más beatmaking puro y duro. Ahi teneis a 14KT dandole durete en el estudio.

Este hombre me dejó loco con su beat tape "Killatape" y creo que es uno de esos productores a los que hay que seguirles la pista.

Vale recordar también su videoclip del tema "The Inside"

Louisden Homework 89 - Sonnyjim Remix Competition (due sept 4th)

To celebrate the release of the album we've managed to prize an acapella off the project to let you guys give the remix treatment to. The original track "The Headsplit" is produced by Illmind and similar to our "Trading Standards Remixes" homework from a while back the best remix (picked by Sonnyjim in the stream) will get released via EATGOOD on an upcoming project, not bad eh?

If youd like to get busy with a remix then download the remix kit, included is the Acapella and a snippet of the original track so you can hear how the vocals are supposed to fit.

The track itself is 91.99 BPM, remember if you are new to remixing then do your homework with lining the vocals up!! the goal of a remix is to make your beat fit the vocals rather than the other way round; we'd only expect you to mess with the vox themselves if you are gonna draw from some dub/glitch influences but essensially if it's a straight up blap then get the BPM right!!

Good luck and we'll see you in the stream

remix kit here:

Submit beats in email to before 17:00 GMT on 4th September 2011

Suerte si participais!

S1 aka Symbolyc One (@SymbolycOne) recrea "Excellence (Murder to Excellence)"


Directamente desde twitter os dejo el video donde S1 cuenta y enseña el making of del tema "Excellence (Murder to Excellence)" que produjo para el nuevo elepe de Kanye West y Jay Z "Watch The Throne".

El look del video y de el mismo denota muchisimo la influencia de su reciente firma por el sello de Kanye West GOOD Music.

Increible como en solo 3 años puede cambiar tanto la vida de un productor.


BK-One (@bk_one_RSE) Tema Do Canibal remix contest!


Ahi os lo dejo!

On my new Tema Do Canibal EP, I had 7 different musicians from very different backgrounds reinterpret one of my favorite songs off my last album. The results range from a soulful and jazzy meditation to a bare bones percussion freak-out. From a blistering dancefloor anthem to a dark and bizarre hip hop opus.

Now I want to see what you can do. I'm giving you the drum track that I created for "Tema Do Canibal" and the horn track recorded by The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble. Use as much or as little of them as you want, and add anything you can dream up (extra points for originality). When you're done with your creation, upload it to my dropbox on Soundcloud. Go to and click on the dropbox tab (underneath my picture, to the right of "tracks", "sets", etc...). Do anything you want and submit as many different creations as you can think up. I'll personally pick my favorite on August 26th. The winner will receive a copy of the Tema Do Canibal EP, a copy of Rádio Do Canibal, all four stamps designed by Mike 2600, all inside a Rhymesayers cinch bag. The winners track will be uploaded to my Soundcloud page and played on RSE Radio, Rhymesayers weekly radio show on KFAI.

The winner of the contest will also be awarded a Pro account from Soundcloud!
