Tonight is about production. The lady who produced me, celebrates her birthday today. Without her, I wouldn't be here. I don't think it is coincidence that tonight's selection has no emcee, solely a producer. Residing in Arizona by way of South Africa. Yes, that makes him African-American, literally speaking. Our homie, A1 stepped outside the box with this one.
He succeeded where I failed miserably when I tried my hand at beats. He took alternate conclusions beyond expectation. The ability to get so many variations out of a single sound is priceless. So, he sampled In The Rain, by The Dramatics and got four different versions. I can't say that I've seen this done on a public scale. The beauty of the underground, artists are recognized for creativity.
The song itself is a very popular classic. My family used to play it a lot when I was a kid. It has even been used by other producers. A1 still manages to manipulate the sounds further. Notice multiple tempo, timing plus time lengths, as well as loops, and break points. Hip Hop heads will be impressed by the efforts without drums. Hard to choose a favorite, I would most likely rhyme on the second track, though.
This four pack of Flips is relaxing. The kind of week some of have been having, we need the relief. He even joins the crew for the picture in his variant cover art. Slide to Bandcamp and get your copy. Follow and share the work of this Black Hand Music Group artist. Pardon me fam, this post was for last night. There was a site issue. Thankfully, everything is back up and running. Also grateful for your loyalty. Jah bless all of you!

Moving in a different direction through this post tonight. I sidelined an album to give the streams a cool EP. It’s been weighing on me to work with these individuals riding with me on the project. They all did what I visualized, and more!
