about

De La Soul. J Dilla. Talib Kweli. Common. Slum Village. Ghostface Killah. Those are just some of the names that have received some audio dope from Queens producer Supa Dave West. And today, we are proud to present the release of his first, full solo project, Beat Boxing. The 23 beats on the LP start out synth heavy that is characteristic of Detroit’s Hip-Hop sound, but then move into other fields with vocoders, chimes, vocal soul samples, and sounds you may have never heard before, but nonetheless fit just right. Consider this project not just as the perfect canvass for lyrical masterpieces but also as a history lesson into Hip-Hop’s rich sound from some of the greats into the future. Someone needs to go ahead and put out a mixtape of freestyles over just these beats… (looks at Elzhi)

When asked if there was a theme behind the project, Supa Dave West had this to say:

“Beat Boxing is more of a concept in the fact that I had the original idea to make an effort to document how I put music together. I wanted to paint an audio art statement. I’ve been doing music for a long time and I have never had a specific style per se. I do a lot of things musically as the task calls for, real construction, and Beat Boxing is my first installment as a solo artist. I felt the first effort should give an idea of my range as a producer/artist; I want to give snap shots of things to come, but also display how I visualize sound. I also wanted to produce an album that had legs to stand on, but moved quick — exciting and unpredictable. I couldn’t just make a beat tape with one ID to the next, I had to create a world for these beats, just like actors to play roles in a well scripted sequence.

Nothing beats a failure than the ability to keep trying. I promise to keep trying at making great music…”

This project certainly has legs and moves faster than Ali.
