Benny ELs Drops First Installment to Industry Meltdown

TruStatement is releasing Benny EL’s most recent mixtape, The Industry Meltdown, set to drop October 5th. The project features some of the hottest new & old school instrumentals from artists such as The Beastie Boys, Biggy, Wale, and Timbaland. The most refreshing angle of this mixtape is the wide variety in musical genres, as well as Benny ELs ability to showcase a natural and consistent flow over any beat that comes his way. ELs has been on a tear, tracking with TruStatement collaborators Micah, M.A.E., Baldi, Never Yet Contested, and Free Trade for months, preparing for his official album release entitled B.E.T.A., set to drop Fall of 2010. B.E.T.A. is the deadly combination of producer t. agency and emcee, Benny ELs.

Below is the first YouTube installment to Benny ELs mixtape release with the song “Unbelievable”

Ropeadope Presents: Snarky Puppy

Courtesy of John Novotny:

The new release entitled, “Tell Your Friends”  is Snarky Puppy’s fourth studio album, however the vision behind it is quite unlike that of most studio albums recorded before. The inspiration for this album spawned from the idea that it ispossible to play a concert in a recording studio. “Tell Your Friends”, is just that: a concert CD/DVD recorded and filmed on location at the legendary Dockside Studio in front of fans from all across the continent. They came from Texas,Tennessee, Alabama, Virginia, New York, Arizona, Michigan and even Quebec to see Snarky Puppy tear it up for one night in the swamps of Louisiana. Of course itwasn’t all smooth sailing but despite setbacks major and minor, the evening unfolded beautifully.Bassist Michael League described it best when he said, “The only way I canexplain it is that we have wonderful friends. Friends who drove in from all overthe continent to be a part of something unique, and perhaps a little bit insane. Friends who scurried around half of Acadiana running errands for us at all hoursof the day and night to make sure we had what we needed when we needed it. Friends who love music and will do anything to see it come to life”.

TruStatement Weekend Oneonta University

(photo : Gubi)

The entire TruStatement camp traveled through the sticks of upstate New York, all the way to a small college town known as Oneonta, NY with an army of emcees, musicians, and Full Sail University grads in the hopes of dedicating an entire weekend to recordings sessions, photo shoots, video shoots, rehearsals, live shows, and a ton of partying. Every minute of this 3 day adventure was shot on cell phones, HD video cameras, and HQ photography equipment, providing a wide variety of visual  encounters with every member of the TruStatement camp. These images, videos, tweets, and status updates were consolidated onto one website, created by the behind the media team at TruStatement. (http://www.flavors.me/trustatement)

The final project will be divided into two separate releases. The first release will be a movie trailer including all cell phone videos and photos from the weekend. The official video will serve as an HD documentation of the 3 day adventure with TruStatement Entertainment in Oneonta, NY. Trust us… the video will be full of emcee performances, impromptu freestyle sessions, candid interviews, and late nights full of heavy partying.

Really dope beats from Flying Lotus off his newest album Cosmogramma. For those who have not tapped into the LA DJ/Producer, take a minute and enjoy the unique sounds you subliminally hear while watching late night Adult Swim on Comedy Central. This track is titled “Zodiac Shit”
