For those of you keenly following every article and post we put up on the site, or just those of you that are simply interested, then you may well remember we posted up a album cut and mixed by Pragmatic Theory entitled ‘Summer In The City’. The LP’s full of a plethora of MCs, both from the US and the UK. The album was and is a fantastic release, showcasing some awesome rappers, with intelligent and well versed wordplay, all rapped over some ridiculously tasty beats and instrumentals. We probably told you to drop a few bucks, stop giving Starbucks your money (PAY YOUR TAX) and buy that release.
Well Pragmatic Theory member, Keith Price has recently dropped his own solo beat tape entitled ‘Bunch Of Fives Vol 1’. The beauty of this tape is that it was made with SP 505, overdubs, absolutely no sequencing, a bunch of vinyl and a turntable. Considering so many DJ’s can’t enough of sequencing, this is pretty impressive; plus I’m always a sucker for some live cutting, especially when it’s done this well. ‘Bunch Of Five Vol 1’ is the first in a series of 5 beat tapes, followed by a vocal album ‘From the Low Point’ in the very near future. You can pick this up for a big old nothing over at his bandcamp.
