WORDS FROM THE HERO
Peace World, 1st I would like to say sorry for the delay in posts the past few weeks. I have actually had this post parked in Draft-mode for a week and just have not had the proper time to dedicate to the internet. Usually I wouldnt even mention that and just post when I post but the reason for my brief hiatus and this post have A Common Factor. "The DrumLove" hahaha.
1'st A little scatterbrained back story if I may, (yes you may: says my imaginary responsive reader board of directives) Those who know of me or this website based on my music as "Dutchmassive" would or rather should know that I got into the emcee / producer game while I was in the Marching band Drumline. What you may not know is a few years back A Local (Tampa Bay) Producer / DJ / Graphic Artist / Computer Genius by the name of Ran Knaff (professionally known as RANMECCA) held of few producer based showcases named "DRUMLOVE"
Being A Tampa Artist, I was asked to perform at one of these showcases and by doing so I put together A 34 minute Beat Set which showcased my production ranging from 2000-2007 - Had some random old joints, stuff from my still Unreleased "Music 2 Sleep To" project and a few others..... So nearly 9 months later I put together A Instrumental Mini Project for the website / Radioshow "BTS RADIO" which was Andew Meza's show.... which featured my man Samiyam, and a grip of other producers who has since gained alot of momentum - Flying Lotus Eric Lau, Ras G, pretty much the Brain Feeder Collective. Anywho, I sent the project to Andew and he turned it down and didnt want it for BTS, so I sent it out to a select few people and it ended up on Every Blog and website, The 1st to feature it was my man Frank fom RAPPERSIKNOW.COM the same Day it was on FORMATMAG.COM and then it just took off from there, DJ's were playing it during there live sets, Radio shows etc........
A few months ago, RANMECCA hit me up because of an program/App he was creating for the I-phone - The DRUMLOVE APP. which I beleive will be launched very sooon. So In the Spirit of Audio productions transition from huge machines to now becoming staples of society on cellphones and video game consoles, I put together A Small post of A few cool apps/programs....... (IF YOU KNOW OF ANY OTHER ONES, LEAVE A COMMENT OR SHOOT ME A MESSAGE AND I WILL UPDATE THIS POST) which brings us to the reason I havent been on keeping up with the HSH or internet as a whole for that Matter.
I'm putting the final Touches on my Next INSTRUMENTAL INSTALLMENT / BEAT JOURNEY / DRUMLOVE PART II.
So until then, Enjoy the 1st Installment, I want to give a shout to my mans N them, RAN, Mishoo, Intact! Buff1, ErockA, SPON (I got you next Duko), Sandman & Dynasty, Dj Fisher, Muneshine!, Illmind, Pk The Gift, Slop, Funkghost, Laws, my man K Skills (kaydee) and my family Majik Most & Celph Titled (get ready for Long overdue Equilibrium Reunion produced by the legendary BUCKWILD!)
