Sold Out - $19.99
Limited to 500 hand-numbered copies.Produced by Exile. Inspired by The Artist Formerly Known As Prince. I woke up April 21st to the news of Prince's passing. Before I could fully digest the news I receive numerous text from friends about his passing and how I should honor his passing with making music with Prince samples, in honor. I thought to myself I'm not going to do that, I'm not going to try ride Prince's legacy to gain fame. As time passed, drinks were sipped and again I'm asked the question "how are you going to respond, musically to his passing?" I went home faded, turned on the stereo and started banging Prince. As I'm listening I'm realizing all the emotion of mine that is stored in his music. I'm realizing how much of his music my mom would play loudly in the house. My mothers face happy as she would dance in the house. I mean she would be busting! Dancing like she's in the club! She was good too! I began to cry and think about my own life, my mothers passing and princes passing as a symbol of this wonderful journey. A sign of the times of my own life to witness the death of my mother to know the the death of a prince that represents almost a farewell to a childhood that made the manhood of who I am now. The creativity I fight viciously for, and the inspiration I find along the way that keeps on track with the God energy means everything to me. All the summers that passed with this amazing inspiration, creativity and emotion that is Prince to me. I realized I have no choice but to honor his creative life by honoring my own by taking my good friends advice with these 3 simple beats and this hip hop I've been working on my whole life. This is what makes me happy. Inspiration turned to creation. With heart and with love. Rest in Peace, Prince. -Exile Manfredi

From Exile, the man responsible for critically acclaimed collaborative albums with Blu, Fashawn, Aloe Blacc & Johaz, comes the instrumental album Zip Disks & Floppies. “When I was 15 years old, before the internet, before the existence of state of the art beat making programs that quantize or add effects, my first beat was conceived using two tape decks and a turntable, followed with beats from a single push button sampler and 4-track, progressively moving up to a Roland MS1, and of course the MPC 2000. Stacks upon stacks of floppy disks saved my beats, sometimes even using 2-6 floppies for one beat. Now my beats are created using a MPC2000 XL and a zip drive capable of holding up to 15 beats, but with only 10 left I’m left with a promise to myself that it is time to upgrade to a new machine to make beats. These beats are joints I had laying around that were never used, but it’s still heat. Bang these beats loud as we near the end of my beats on the MPC 2000 XL.
