Being a fan of Freddie Gibbs, during our last review it was mentioned that he needed some serious production help as well as a few features. In jumps super producer Madlib. Following a lot of his instrumental albums I have been a fan for a while but lately he has been producing a lot of others. With this combination we looked forward to hearing this release
Almost fresh off our review of his last years critically acclaimed release Flower boy. We get this new change and feel from Tyler after he has done some commercial high viz projects. We review the new 12 track release Igor and debate its merits so to speak
I’m back to finish up my two part review of Dabrye. His latest sparked me to go back and listen to his past work then reintroduce you to his current release. As part of my producer feature on CarrWaxx. We Focus on the latest and greatest (a matter of taste of course) These producers are just unique and away from the mainstream that one would hear on streaming services. Here is Three/Three
We end the 3 part review of the music awards for 2018 with a few reviews that we enjoyed based on the lyrical abilities of these artist. Ending with the Album/Artist of the year, that doesn’t line up too well with the Grammy’s. Especially the crime of not including J. Cole. Go back and reference the reviews for these nominee's throughout the year so you can see where we were with our predictions.

I ran into one of my favorite producers from the early 2000's and found that he released a current LP that was in line with his previous releases. Tadd Mullinixor Dabrye at that time was a talented producer from Michigan that did a lot of production with electronics and hip hop. To pay homage to his career and to highlight his new release. I wanted to review his previous releases. Here's part 1
Tadd Mullinixor Dabryeis an American musician from Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States, also known by the aliases James T. Cottonand SK-1. During his adolescent years, he grew up in Troy, MI. His Winking Makes a Face was the first album released by Ann Arbor’s Ghostly International. Parting with the IDMsound of Winking..., the first Dabrye album was 2001's One/Three, whose take on instrumental hip-hopparalleled the work of artists such as Prefuse 73.
Our second half review falls on a producer. Metro Boomin is synonymous with the Atlanta sound. Seems to be always on the Quality Control hits and then some. We speak to the features and his creative way he decided to approach this solo album with a massive cast of QC artist.
As this is Kanye's month (June). We start with his solo release Ye! Even tho the album covers says,"I hate being bi-polar - its awesome". Somebody is still a fan and somebody is done with his sh*t!! But we both know that he is still one of the best producers out now. we break it down!!
We end our interview with Tremel Copeland with reminiscing of older equipment and a few techniques of recording and producing. A great conversation of old perspective and new with a common love of creating.
SoundCloud: Zuri production
For my special production/DJ series. I sit down with the young Producer Tremel Copeland AKA Zuri of Zuri production. I had to have a sit down with Tremel because of the many beats and production interludes we play during a lot of our podcast. And I wanted to pick his brain and show recognition and gratitude for his talent This is Part I
