“We make all of our beats from scratch”, says K-Salaam, one half of the dynamic duo Beatnick & K-Salaam. “We design our own sounds, our own drums, we come up with new chord progressions. We don’t need to sample, but people are already sampling us.”
From the crew that brought you the sounds behind Ms. Lauryn Hill’s live show and the first production team in history to score music for the Olympics, comes the Mass Appeal premiere of “Movin It” featuring Midwest legend Tech N9NE & his Strange Music artist, Wrekonize.
The first single off the upcoming album The Bluest Flame, finds Tech and Wrek skating over the high octane track that combines Trap with Rock and R&B, accompany that with some bangin’ drums and a unique musical style that is both innovative and vintage at the same time. Adding words to the stellar production are the likes of Talib Kweli, Bun-B, Blu, Joell Ortiz and more. The scene has officially been for the kind of Hip-Hop and real music that the game has been missing.
The Bluest Flame drops August 25th worldwide.
The duo is also releasing their Reggae EP Give Love w/ Junior Reid on the same day.
