The resident DJ and producer for The Nehemiah Band, Descry, has just dropped a free gem in the form of a mixtape he calls Rap. Rap. Rap. This release is a straight forward seamless mix of some of his favorite Hip-Hop tracks of the moment. This is reminiscent of the early mixtapes – no additional non sense or gimmicky tricks, just smooth mixing and an emphasis of music over everything. Towards the end you can even hear a sneak peek at his own upcoming personal project As Serenity Approaches. Get the tape for free here.
There was a time when the DJ was called the backbone of Hip-Hop…a tastemaker that brought new content to listeners in a creative and unique way. Pioneers like Kool Herc, Africa Bambaatta, Grand Master Flash, Grand Wizzard Theodore, Grand Mixer DXT, and Jazzy Jay all introduced new music and captivated an audience even before there was a genre of music called rap.
So, I present to you my newest mixtape titled, Rap. Rap. Rap.In the same vein as the pioneers, absolutely free. No catch.
This project features no complex trick mixing or annoying “DJ” voiceovers because I made the focus to be all about the music, just like the pioneers. The artists showcased on this tape are a few of my own personal favorites–Kanye West, Lil’ Wayne, Eminem, Drake, Snoop Dogg, DJ Quik, Lil’ B, Raekwon, Blu, Pac Div, and Frank Ocean.
What is unique to this particular mixtape is that 47:55 features an exclusive snippet from my upcoming sophmore album As Serenity Approaches. The album will feature a few of my favorite artists like Danny Brown, Oddisee, Roc Marciano, One Be Lo, Raashan Ahmad, Tanya Morgan, Clara C, TiRon, Outasight, Theo Martins, MED, Y-O (of U-N-I) and of course my Subkrew team. Check for it dropping mid-April 2011.
