RESET DROP OUT part 2 + Journal Entry: “Soar”

I intended for “Soar” to be the first track on reset because it was the first song I created after I had the idea for the album.  As I created beats I just felt like I wanted to push myself more and although this beat is fire– I scrapped it.  I absolutely love the verses and prolly will use them at a later date for something especially the second verse!  I actually have a version of this song with Wanda Jae singing on it so this could possibly land on her album.  5 days until the reset and I couldn’t be more excited– so much good news on this record and I feel like its a new beginning for me as a producer.

Crate Me #499 Bobby Bland- I wouldn’t Treat a Dog

 

The hit on this record is “aint no love in the heart of the city” which Kanye West murdered for the Jay Z hit “heart of the city”.  But Bobby Bland’s Dreamer record has Joints on it!!!!  This record is in my top 25 albums of all time– and my favorite song on here is “I wouldn’t treat a dog”  The pain and disgust in his voice– I think every man has felt like this… its like your so mad that you can’t believe it.  Comedian Dane Cook has a great bit on this moment.

Great groove from the roll tom snare roll in –horns on 1…sheesh CRATE ME

This joint is a pretty revealing one lyrically and was a last minute cut– I mean the day I delivered the flash drive to the mastering engineer last minute cut!

Maybe 3 years ago or more Izzy (heartfelt anarchy) and I played at the american royale here in Kansas City.  This was pre what heartfelt stage show is now, no mask, no lights, no finger drumming, just Iz rapping and me behind turntables.  We rocked hard that night tho’! — so hard that they asked me to dj for a while after our set.  After our set the promoter approached Izzy and I and said “Marc Ecko is here and wants to meet y’all in his trailer”
