El Michels Affair

Shimmy Shimmy Ya / Incarcerated Scarfaces

Back in 2006 El Michels Affair began releasing a slew of brilliant covers of Wu-Tang classics on 7" as part of their acclaimed "Shaolin Series", eventually leading to their full length project of Wu-fueled interpretations - "Enter The 37th Chamber" in 2009. Now available for the first time on 7" by popular demand, 2 more stand-out tracks from the LP - "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" b/w "Incarcerated Scarfaces". Shaolin's wild styles ride again!

The 12th installment of Fat Beats’ celebrated instrumental series, featuring harpist, pianist, guitarist and producer Low Leaf. "Not all creation is inspired. It is the Spirit of Life that gives breath to a chord, a texture, a space to explore. Pure inspiration is a direct translation from the cosmic symphony that our collective heart beats to.

It is the essence of all that is true, whole, and free. Being planted in the periphery of Los Angeles, I have witnessed the musical landscape’s ever-evolving terrain from a spiritual perspective. I’ve come to learn the gravity of music’s inherent healing quality through life experiences; the ones that have tilled the soil of my being, season after season. By way of meditation and prayer / listening and speaking, we are capable of connecting to endless musical realms within. These are sounds that forever feel familiar, for they bring the spirit home; the return to peace and understanding. My dream is to live as music to the best of my ability, so that the Spirit of Life may use my voice as an instrument for God’s glory. create or die." - Low Leaf 

RSXGLD (Ro Spit & 14KT)

RSXGLD

    Debut release for Detroit veterans 14KT & Ro Spit, forming RSXGLD (Pronounced Rose Gold). For Ro Spit and 14KT, they’ve built a small empire on their own as solo artists. Ro Spit has amassed a career spanning across 3 albums, 2 mixtapes, and countless of features including Royce Da 5’9”, Denaun Porter, Bun B, Freeway and Raheem DeVaughn just to name a few. Not to mention a reality TV show centered around his world famous brandBurn Rubber that was produced by Eminem.

    The production arm of RSXGLD, 14KT, is 8 albums deep into his career. KT has paired with some of the best in the game, having worked with a who’s who of today’s artists such as Roc Marciano, Danny Brown, Black Milk, Bun B, eLZhi, Oddisee, Skyzoo, Jay Electronica, and even a collaboration album with his fellow Ann Arbor compadré Mayer Hawthorne as they formed the duo Jaded Inc. Nothing, however, in their respective discographies has sounded more organic and masterful than the combination of Ro and KT. “Every project that I’ve done he’s been a part of,” says Ro. “To be honest, he’s my favorite producer.” The chemistry they’ve been able to develop over the years is evident throughout Ro’s discography on tracks like “Leave Me Alone” taken from Octane & iLLite’s The Forgotten...

    Chosen and the Freeway featured “Forefeit” from Ro’s Glass Ceiling Project. It’s only right that the two have taken their time to create an organic piece of work unlike anything they’ve done before, set to debut this Fall on Fat Beats Records. “Leading up to this, my whole career, I intentionally didn’t show vulnerability. I didn’t want people to know about me,” Ro exclaims. RSXGLD is the lyrical maturation of Ro Spit while this group pushed 14KT to new creative levels sonically. “I’ve used Maschine for 3 years but I haven’t really come out with any projects making beats in this way. It was a totally new process for me,” KT notates. “Sonically, I’ve created in a way that I’ve never created before. It’s all different and out of my comfort zone.” This is a true, social experiment. This is music made from the soul that encompasses every aspect of the human experience. This is how you push beyond your limits. This is RSXGLD.
