Drew Kid on the Keys


Drew (aka Drew Kid) has been a good friend of mine for sometime. He's been on the D.C hip-hop scene since he was in high-school. My first encounters with him kind of started in 2007 seeing each other at the same shows. Drew Plays keys on most of the DTMD stuff that i cant actually play and lends some of his classically trained( ha) critique to our projects. Anyways, Drew is a dope keyboard player and is only like 19 or 20 years old. He made playing contributions to DTMD's forth coming album "Makin Dollas", along with Soulful's "Mumbo Sauce and Drumbreaks". Heres a small video I put together of one of those sessions.
Forgive my bad videography.

MindsOne - Might Be

This post is Long over due. The brothers "MindsOne" released a Dope Album named "Self Reliance"
earlier this Fall. Some of the Members are DC natives now living in North Carolina. Although im
yet to meet Them in person, i was really messing with their sound when they hit me up last year for a beat.
I sent them the track and the song came about, they hit up my man Kev Brown and he hopped on the track for a verse
If you get a chance, go on itunes and cop "Self Reliance"
Its a real well put together album
Some of the producers including myself were Kon Sci (mindsONE), J Rawls, Kev Brown and Illmind
Once again, happy i can contribute to an album with that cast of producers .

Stik Figa's From the Top EP

I've been hearing about Stik Figa since the myspace days through the big bro, Oddisee. Finally Stik made the trip from Topeka to DC and i just so happened to be there. Odd and Stik were working on the EP, and i played Stik some beats and he picked one of my beats that later became, "From the Top" the title track of his EP.
Stik later recorded on the track and after i left, Oddisee added, horns, synths and bass to the beat.
Anyways, Stik Figa is one of my new favorite artists and im just glad i could contribute to the project. Oddisee and Stik made a great EP. Be sure to check out "bucket", my favorite track on the EP.

The Leftovers EP

Whats Going on world?
Im dropping this instrumental EP after a longtime of deliberation.
I was going through some old files and realized nothing became of these beats so i decided to do something about it
They are either DTMD joints that didnt make the album or simply beats i completely forgot about.
So i figured id compile them into one EP to release.
Spread the word.
Thankyou so much for the continued support of DTMD
The album "Makin Dollas" is on its way.
Peace and Respect
