Tommy Black - Interludes Of Life EP

I discovered Tommy Black from Sweeden the other day and was gassed enough at the material to share with you guys. I got hip to Tommy via searching out the production credits for Kendrick Lamar's awesome #Section80 (album of the year so far for me!!) he produced the interlude track "Chapter Six", at first I was convinced that with the onpoint snares, bubble bass it was a Nottz joint but after seeing Tommy's name crop up I did some homework.

Tommy Black

Dude is NIIIIICE, got a real soulful sound; he definitely a nice ear for twisting samples and working in spacey backdrops and synths. As well as producing for west coast artists like Kendrick, Ab-Soul, Butch Cassidy and Schoolboy Q he's also put out a free EP back in February entitled Interludes Of Lift. Check out this profile on him over at which contains some links to individual tracks as well as his free EP.

    Homework 90 - Otis Reflips

    Homework 90 - Otis Reflips

    Seeing as a million and one rappers have flocked to the instrumental of the recent Jay-Z and Kanye West collab; we figured it'd be a good homework to let the producers get in on the action too.

    The single from the pair utilized parts of an Otis Redding song "Try A Little Tenderness", many were quick to critize chop; many were quick to do stan remakes.

    Well of course we want to do things a little different so rather than remaking the track; we want you to use the same parts Kanye did as your source material; but then the gloves are off!! feel free to manipulate those bits of music however you see fit.

    Create a fresh beat from Otis Reddings "Try A Little Tenderness" with the twist of using the same parts Kanye used for his track "Otis", you are free to do whatever you like with the samples providing those are your only source material.

    Beats are due 2nd October (thats a week's time) by 17:00. submit the mp3 entries to streaming in the lab from 18:00 at

    Download a WAV of all the chops here - (right click and save target as)

    Naive Machine - Robot Ramification & (Pete Cannon + Jon Phonics Remixes)

    Naive Machine is the electronica/beats driven outift from producer Naive (beat cypher 06 anyone? he tore it down alongside Apatight, Dockmini and Knox Brown), as Naive Machine it's given him the outlet to explore more electronic/synth driven stylings away from his hiphop persona

    His latest release Robot Ramification has two tracks "Call Of The Wild" "Electric Eccentric" that have been given the remix treatment from Louisden fam Jon Phonics and Pete Cannon, the whole thing has straight up beats, dubstep and electronica tinges and everything inbetween (classifying sucks!!) give it a listen dont be afraid of a bit of a different steez!

    Peep the snippets of the tracks over here at junodownload. 6 Track vinyl EP (with OM unit remixes) has been out a minute now; but the recently released digital joint also includes 3 other remixes (as well as the Jon and Pete joints)

    Producer S1 recreates "Excellence" from Watch the Throne

    Producer S1 has gone from strength to strength in the last couple years; scoring a breakthrough placement with Kanye West's "Power" from his last LP; he's gone on to produce for Beyonce and Jay-z & Kanye with their recent "Watch The Throne" joint.

    He's made a short film showing him recreating parts of the beat in the lab and talking about how the track came about, a lil bit hollywood but dont get it twisted its more the filmmaker flexing some creative muscle as S1 is one of the most humble dudes out there!

    S1 recreating "Excellence" from "Murder To Excellence"

    Big Shug & Primo recording "Tha Way It Iz" (circa '05)

    spotted at Kil's will make beats for food

    Caught this on OKP earlier today, Kil from Will Make Beats For Food has upped a DVD rip of the bonus DVD that came with Big Shugs "Who's Hard" LP from 2006, check his blog above if you want to watch the other parts (pretty standard EPK/documentary steez) but whats interesting is the third part which shows Primo in the Headqcourterz lab getting busy with a blunt and the MPC60 (in his typical make beats for the artists on the spot), chopping up what ends up being shug's track Tha Way It Iz.

    He later hits the protools setup to lay the vox down, an interesting watch despite being pretty short.

    FLüD Presents: Beats Per Minute

    FLüD have recently released their Beats Per Minute range of digital watches; the MPC inspired design also doubles as a calculator and leaves me reminiscent of those throwback calculator watch joints from the 80's.

    To celebrate the launch of the line they hooked up with an array of producers and got them to talk shop about beats, current state of hiphop and inspiration; pretty refreshing seeing as they haven't got them onboard just to say how great the watches are, although there is the odd gratuitous artistic angle of them rockin them at any given point heh no such thing as a free lunch.

    Aiite peep the clips below, some nerd food for you beat heads!

    If you missed out on one of the 300 copies of Behind Closed Doors, well good news! myself and Andy have repressed the project so its now back in stock for anyone who wants to see where the whole BCD journey began.

    Homework 89 - Psychonaut Headsplit Remixes

    Heres the Ustream session from the Louis Den homework we hosted a week or so ago. The weeks goal was to turn in remixes to the track Illmind produced track "The Headsplit" taken from Sonnyjim's new album "The Psychonaut LP".

    So if you want to read some insightful stuff or some down right geekery (like the fact that 'Song Cry' by Jay-Z has approx 96 CHOPS!) then give the article a read..

    Protecting the "Throne"

    These dudes are the Illest Motherf**ker's Alive after managing to hold down Watch The Throne from leaking on the run up to it's August 8th release, and this Billboard article explains all.

    Honestly, I didn't think it was possible but when you bring in fingerprint recognition external hard drive's, locks, keys, portable studios and three trusted engineers (who probably were sleeping next to the briefcase with the drives in them...) then it might just be do-able.

    "The boss asked for it not to be leaked," says Kilhoffer, referring to West, "so there you go."

    Homework 89 - The Psychonaut Headsplit Remix

    NEW HOMEWORRRRRRRRRRRRRRK! rejoyce!! aite so I've been mad busy with a gang of life ish for the past few months; tried my best to keep the ldbb blog updated with various bits but for the most part I've had to take a bit of a backseat.

    Yes the league is still happening; We'll hopefully be ready for dope ass beat 3 to fall around the same time as it did back for the 2009-2010 league so get cooking in the lab!! before all that though We'll ease back into LDBB runnings with some homeworks! lets goo!.

    Homework 89 - The Psychonaut Headsplit Remix

    EATGOOD Records artist Sonnyjim has recetly dropped his ill "Psychonaut LP" which features production from M-Phazes, Illmind, Dag Nabit and Louis Den's Kelakovski, Pete Cannon and Eyebs; plus gang of others. The album is a joint release from EG and Australian label Obese (orchestrated from Sonny's tour out in Australia a couple years back) plus theres features/production coming from a few Oz artists.

    To peep the LP head over to Sonnyjim's Bandcamp page and also take a look at the videos for the tracks "The Psychonaut" (prod DJ IQ) and "Flying To The Moon" (prod Kelakovski).

    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 here (right click and save), 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!!

    Its useful if your software/hardware would allow you to freely move the vox around your beat to line it up; if it doesnt you could always bounce out the beat into a multitrack editor and get it right that time!! but dont let an out of time Acca cost you the chance of winning!!

    To remix the Sonnyjim track "The Headsplit", no restrictions or limitations just download the Vox and get it in!! however you are expected to turn in an original beat and not blend it with someone elses material.

    This is a two week challenge to ease back into the homeworks! turn in the beat by 17:00 on 4th September, email your entries to ; please attach the mp3 to the email message rather than a download makes things a lot easier for us this way!!.

    We'll be streaming at to hear the entries and pick a winner!! good luck!
