Producer DaiN releases his debut 7” single featuring incredible vocal collaborations with LA’s Modern Funk queen Moniquea, and frequent Tall Black Guy collaborators Malice & Mario Sweet. Drawing inspiration from great producers like J Dilla, DJ Quik, and Kev Brown, DaiN brings a unique swing and style to the table with his signature drums, bass lines, and keys. Instantly recognizable with a sound all its own, DaiN’s first release with Liquid Beat is perfect for those who love expertly produced, beat driven R&B and Hip-Hop. Included with the 7” is a free download of DaiN’s entire “Treat Yourself” EP that features additional collaborations with Black Spade, Rozzi Daime (of SA-RA fame), and up and coming Portland songstress Blossom.
Portland, OR producer HOT16 continues his recent run of quality releases with his new 7” single, ‘Rhythm’, which features guest vocals from Ohmega Watts, and a b-side remix by the legendary K-Def. ‘Rhythm’ is not only an ode to the music that moves the body, but the vibe that connects us all, beyond barriers of language and nationality. Utilizing samples, keyboards, and chopped up live Rhodes, Guitar, and Horns, HOT16 has crafted an incredibly impressive, and ever changing beat that allows Ohmega Watts to deliver his critical, yet hopeful rhymes. K-Def blesses the b-side with an amazing remix that ups the tempo, and uses bass, horns, and strings on top of a driving breakbeat to create a darker tone that brings out the seriousness behind Ohmega’s message. ‘Rhythm’ is a funky, soulful record that captures the spirit of the golden era of Hip-Hop, without ever sounding retro or throwback. This is what good Hip-Hop sounds like in 2015 and beyond.
The “Street Player” EP covers and reimagines the Disco classic originally made famous by Chicago, and later sampled and turned into a House classic by Kenny Dope & The Bucketheads. With the help of the UK’s Colonel Red on all leading vocals, Liquid Beat’s crew of in-house producers each recreated unique covers of “Street Player” in their own signature styles. Label head Matt Nelkin’s version of “Street Player” is a tight, streamlined adaptation of the original that uses live players to add an updated soul and funk feel. Prolific producer HOT16 offers up a New Funk twist with intricate drum machine work, bass, guitar, and synths replacing the iconic horn lines perfectly. Roane Namuh on the other hand gives the whole composition a makeover transforming the track into a soulful Deep House groove with Colonel Red matching the lyrics perfectly around the rhythms. And lastly, Liquid Beat newcomer DaiN turns in an original, new school R&B styled composition that works as a culminating meditation on the Street Player theme. The “Street Player” EP was truly a labor of love by the entire Liquid Beat crew and is aimed strictly at DJs and music lovers with a passion for the past and an eye towards the future. Anyone who is familiar with the original version will find this release to be a welcome alternate and a sure shot crate staple.
