POP TARTS beat tape

<a href="http://ranmecca.bandcamp.com/album/pop-tarts">1-4 beats a day by Ranmecca</a>

First of all thank you for listening, This Project was alot of work and so much
fun! when i started this, Originally I started this, I wanted to make this lp with
Only the MPC, in the end, it was about %80 MP and the rest editing. I've
Had my MPC 2000 about a year (year and a half if you count the pawn shop).
its an outdated process, very enjoyable, i now can fully appreciate PC beatmaking.

I want this to sound like a late 90's beat tape, tape hiss and all Raw, u know?
i missed out on that period so i thought I'd relive it briefly. I knew cats that worked
like this but i was only Djing back then.

Why Pop Tarts? cus i looove them! Following the themes of Donuts(Dilla),
Fresh Brownies( Kev Brown)Nowalatas(14KT),etc.

I hope you enjoy it.

There will be more from this project(remixes,B-Sides,and vocal versions)
so stay tuned

  1. Ran to the K,
    Dope beats bro. Hope everything has been going good for ya.. I'm still steady making beats these days too. Been using Cubase and Reason with M-audio midi controller and Trigger Finger. My ghetto studio finally got a small upgrade. LOL. Mitch has been writing a lot, so I try to make shit he can spit to. I made some tracks lately that were inspired by you. I remember when you first got me into making beats all those years ago. Thank you so much man. I'll be making beats till the day I die. Keep up the good work. Word, Rob One !)
