After an almost two year hiatus, FRSH SLCTS’ beat CD series, WKND BEATS, returns this morning with its 7th release.
Joining the ranks of Daru (drummer for Black Milk, Talib Kweli, Curren$y & more), devonwho (All City), Will Sessions (producer/band behind Elzhi’s ELmatic), J1 (drummer in Dam-Funk’s Master Blazter group/creator of Starship 27 compilations), Proh Mic (ex-Hawthorne Headhunters) & Hi-Res (The New Chill) is none other than
Portland’s own – TOPE (1/3 of TxE & 1/2 of Living Proof) with an all new, exclusive beat CD, entitled FREELEMONADE.
While already having production credits for the likes of Planet Asia and Scarub, alongside hometown heros such as Illmaculate, Cool Nutz, IAME and even pop/folk singer, Kelli Schaefer, Tope is looking to diversify his list of collaborations even further with this batch of 19 beats – all ripe for the artists’ picking, as well as something for the beatheads to just cool out to for the summer.
For FREELEM’s 19 tracks – Tope stays true to the title of his first album by sticking to chopping up some of his favorite soul music. And although this is familiar territory for the young artist, its definitely not the only style he’s got – as you’ll see very soon with the upcoming FRSH SLCTS release of the first official TxE full-length, We Get It In True, w/ fellow group members Epp & G_Force. Not to mention his official sophmore album, Until The Next Time We Meet, which finds him rapping over a variety of beats, produced by the likes of devonwho, Hi-Res, TROX, Tony Ozier, Lawz Spoken & more.
