Beatroot History Lesson w/ Kavet The Catalyst

We're Back! Rustic music has a new lab to broadcast from so let's go cus we have ALOT to catch up on. this interview is rather old, But Kavet's history is sooo close to my own experience goin from djing to production, literally down to equipment and BEATROOT and tampa's DRUMLOVE have a simiar history as well. The production scene here has matured alot and ppl recognize beatmakers more now, theres a market for artists to get beats from and cats around the city drop beat tapes regularly, all we need is regular showcase and battles, so holla and enjoy the interview. Drumlove Shouts to the SPOT/Transitions for letting us do DRUMLOVE there, found an old pic

i really dig themed beat tapes. a few months ago Black Star did a show down here in tampa the after party was at the infamous Old Dirty Sundays where in Talib kweli did an exellent dj set for 300+ party ppl. he played some Fela for about thirty minutes and the whole vibe of the party changed-ppl went from head nodding to dancing and thats rare for a hip hop crowd (yall know). kenosobi and i were there and were already talking about doing a project together- we were like yea a Fela tape! you can get it here or on the Gwan Massive bandcamp

14KT - "Width" feat. Tony Ozier

"2011. This is a personal piece I wanted to share with you all. I made it from compiled videos I recorded on my phone. I made the song dedicated to God, but it's also a dedication to my family and some of the friends He's blessed me with. As an artist, you can easily get caught up in an endless menu of distractions in life. Having to please people, facing criticism on your creativity, pressures of living up to your potential, pleasing others, image, all the things that can create fear in our lives. However, when you put your thoughts on the things/people you truly love, LOVE will conquer fear." R.I.P. My father, Paul Tucker Jr. Lyrics: "When can they measure the width of our love? Never a time Never a time Never a time." -14KT

QTIP needle drops

Listen to me, i never see ppl needle dropping anymore and Tip is Killing it right here. The needle drop is a technique used in hip hop deejaying. The DJ sets a record spinning, then drops the stylus on the turntable at the exact point where he wants playback to begin without previously cuing up the record.[1]
