RANMECCA-ADELE FLIPS by Ranmecca DOWNLOADwith EXTRA goodies(wallpapers and hi-res cover)

Wednesday, October 26, 2011


The Note [Gensu Dean Remix] is a serious, slightly ominous toned track starts with singing in what almost sounds like a call to prayer over a sitar. Then Dean cuts up some drums, adds some bass stabs, and layers vocal chanting throughout the beat to create a thought provoking, heavy new edition of Apollo's original. Additionally Dean drops a new chorus reflecting on those who are so caught up in the grind for money that they lose sight of the everyday folks - a sort of note to self to maintain focus on what's important even while some blaze up in their pursuit of materialism. Hassaan Mackey of course spits raw and reflects on writing, music, and the deals we make: "Looking at the paper like hmmm I'll take her." Hassaan Mackey x Apollo Brown The Note [GENSU DEAN REMIX]

Kev Brown "August 2005 Beat tape"

Kev Brown is forever underrated. this is a really nice a selection
of early work. my favorite thing about this tape is that these are
works just before "i do what i do" came out so the sound is
very familiar.

I Do What I do [import version]
