Monk' (Parisian Beatsmyth)

Thought I'd knock up a quick post, Guys Music is right up My Alley. Enjoy!

This is not an EP or LP, it's a beat tape made of raw Hip Hop/Future Funk beats or whatever you can call this. This reflects what I felt like doing these last few months, didn't feel like sampling so much..Hope you'll enjoy it and spread the word !


released 12 August 2012
All tracks Produced by Monk'
Cover Arts by Ano (

Monk' delves into the intoxicating sphere of electronics, which has
recently culminated into the Truman Shuzz EP. This talented Parisian
continues the West Coast tradition that we have grown to be very fond of, uniquely channelling atmospheric boogie-synths and swingin’ rhythmic beats, resulting in a distinct sound that is predominant in his first beat tape - which says it like it is : “Raw Futuristics (

We were hooked, and impressed, at his stunning narrative through electronic mutations. Amidst the rawness of his production, a nostalgic wave of warmth tides over each track. Exuding a melancholic charm, “Truman Shuzz” is a display of mature introspection - less forlorn, a lot more edge. Its startling how something simple can stir such compelling emotions in a listener.

We champion this optimism through adversity, it stimulates the movement of funk – it unfolds a story, and here we present to you Monk’s first chapter with Darker Than Wax.

D.A.C Beats (2k13) Summer Light EP

The second Brazilian on the DarkerThanWax signing comes in the form of Deryck Alonso Cabrera also know as D.A.C Beats. Growing up on a strict diet of West Coast G-funk and the like, this young one has got FUNK etched all over him. From "Old English" to "Rolling, Rolling, Rolling", he carries on the tradition strongly, while injecting his own swing and language.
But what hits us most is that certain 'spareness' which he maintains, allowing his tracks to breathe and exude that raw vibe.

B 3 N B i (sept. 2k13) You, Yourself

Back in March of 2013 I went to the Beat Swap Meet in Phoenix, AZ. I offered the bored DJ a $20 bill (that I borrowed) to buy his entire box of 45s.

The "[ -- ]" are the way they were named in my MPC. They were numbered in the order I made them. 

There's no real concept to this album, but its a glimpse into the kind of beats that don't take too long to put together but make my day so much brighter after coming home from a long day at my cubicle day job. These are the beats we wake up for, and ones that give us sleepless nights. No pre-determined notion of what they can or should be. No indication or expectation for who will listen to them. Just pure honest raw beats. I hope you enjoy the sounds, and thank you for listening.

Gummy Soul (2k130 93 Still (Souls of Mischief | 93 til' Infinity Remixes 1st Time Ever)

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of 93 'Til Infinity, Souls of Mischief graciously opened their vaults to give Gummy Soul the exclusive acapellas of their classic album, to remix for the first time ever.

As the framework of the project, Gummy Soul’s Wally Clark, dug through his extensive record collection, and gathered all of the songs that were sampled to make hip-hop in 1993. Jazz, Funk and Soul songs, used to create classics from Digable Planets, Snoop Dogg and Black Moon, were then re-contextualized to provide familiar, yet updated versions of some of hip-hop’s most beloved material.

"I wanted to take all of the records that people used back then, and create new compositions using the same techniques they were using – such as filtered bass lines, classic drum breaks, echo-y horns – to make an album that sounds like it could have been released in 1993," says Clark. "It was an amazing exercise trying to capture the essence of a sacred time in hip-hop. It also allowed me to playfully use samples that are normally deemed off-limits, because they are too well known." 

Be on the look out for Soul's of Mischief's new album "There Is Only Now," produced by Adrian Younge, as well as the 93 'Til documentary, featuring Questlove, Mos Def, 9th Wonder, Pete Rock and more. 

Somepling (2k13) Finally Lost

Consider this short album as an experiment.
After the two "self-released" vinyl projects i did this year, i wanted to escape...
Just try new things, work freely without restrictions.
I truly think the MPC sampler is "Only Built For Escaping".

It's not about the trip or the destination, it's about getting lost...
"Finally Lost".



Considérez ce court album comme une expérimentation.
Après avoir travaillé sur les deux projets de disques vinyle auto-produits cette année, je souhaitais juste m'évader...
Tester de nouvelles choses, travailler librement sans contrainte.
Je pense sincèrement que la MPC a été conçue exclusivement pour s'échapper ("Only Built For Escaping").

L'important n'est pas le voyage ni même la destination, c'est de se perdre...
"Finally Lost".

DJ Primate (2k12) Yugo (iNstrumental Hip-Hop)

An El Paso, texan Resident . . . . 17yrs old.

Much like the car the album is named after, this tape is short, rough, and unpolished, but it gets the job done. This album is made up of demos that I've made over the past few months that were actually listenable. I planned to make it this nice big album, but what the hell, this is good enough. I like it.

P.S. If you can name all the (main) samples used in this EP, you'll get an internet high-five because I've lost the original artwork I was originally going to give out. Sorry.

DarkerThanWax: NegiumBeats (2k13) Sweet Life


NeguimBeats is the latest contribution to the constant paradigm shifts in the movement of Brazil – though "Sweet Life" is devoid of the booming favela funk influence, especially pivotal in the current wave of electronic music. In place is a palatial sonic platter of impeccable arrangements. Typical sounds are tastefully woven together, resulting in an incredibly emotive and ambient soundscape. Shaking off expectations of the tropical, South American percussion based samples, he tastefully relives the omnipresent nostalgia of jazz - blithe stabs of keys and notes resonating with earthy, full-bodied snares, as he does in "Smooth Ambient" and "Life in Abundance". Everything falls into its right place as "Jazz" (featuring Kolombiano) hits the cans, with flowing anamorphic sounds and melancholic reverb of piano keys, exuding a keen sense of longing, ending with the illuminating "Space Traveller", capturing the calming, cosmic ambience. Neguim Beats evokes an innate connection with the listener, fast becoming an anomaly in the relationship between artistes and fans – a vital connection we thrive on at DTW.

14KT (Aug. 2013) Nickel'N'Dimed

14KT laces together 14 instrumentals + 1 song with an incomparable ear for flipping samples, and his signature boom-bap, off-kilter drum programming and spacey synths. Then he enlists a handful of his favorite artists for a vocal encore (including Blu, Black Milk and MED) + appearances by Detroit's own JMSN on the summer cruiser Slo Swerve (also featuring Jamall Bufford) and Cali's Kokane (along with MED) on the new west coast anthem "W.C.E.F." 14KT even steps up to the microphone himself on "Five & Ten" to paint a picture of his take on the phrase, “Nickel & Dimed."

Kendall Tucker, aka 14KT, 1/7 of Michigan’s mighty hip-hop group Athletic Mic League, released his debut solo LP "The Golden Hour [Soundtrack]" in 2008 after a rich history with AML. Despite being an instrumental album, The Golden Hour appeared on many year-end “top albums” lists. Okayplayer said “this is the sort of striking project that can single-handedly create an artists following.” And so it did.
14KT has since released four solo albums, and is preparing his new instrumental album "Nickel & Dimed" for an August 27th release on Mello Music Group. From the lean soaked swerve to flamboyant west coast Errol Flynnin', the soulful synths and hard hitting drums drive KT's most eclectic project to date.
