It was about a year ago that our boy from Virginia, ST/MiC (who’s also a world renowned well respected emcee, DJ/remixer/producer/beatmaker/engineer as well) told us to he copped an INTUA.net iPhone app called BeatMaker and a synth app called Noise.io then proceeded to make an entire project using them. We heard a few of the original rough tracks on our first ever archived edition of the Scrunchface Show and Eric & I both went nuts over them. Whenever that project was done, we were definitely going to feature it on Bloggerhouse.
Several months later, ST/MiC sent me 9 instrumental tracks that were going to serve as the skeleton of “In The Pocket” and asked me what I thought of them. I told him that some tracks he should get his rappity rappin’ ass friends to spit on and others he should allow to just rock on their own. I also suggested what kind of emcees should rock and on what tracks. We had a follow up phone conversation the next day and we agreed. MiC went back and recruited some emcees over his production…done all on an iPod Touch.
In early 2011, ST/MiC sent me an early WAV version of “In The Pocket” without cover art featuring scratches, bars and hooks from Moka Only, Jazz Addixx, Has-Lo, Praverb The Wyse, Primo The Cinematic & Waterloo. MiC decided to include all the instrumentals as well. Good call. A month later, MiC sent me a tagged, mastered mp3 version of “In The Pocket” with some gorgeous cover art. Given the recent success of the Producers I Know sponsored instrumental or producer based releases I knew that I’d be dropping this on both Bloggerhouse and Producers I Know. I can’t wait for you all to hear it as well.
In conclusion, the wait is over. I’ve done all the write ups I needed to. We’ve even played some of the beats on The Scrunchface Show. You’ve heard the single. Now hear the completed album. 15 total tracks, 6 with vocals from Jazz Addixx, Praverb The Wyse, Moka Only, Primo The Cinematic, Has-Lo & Waterloo. All 6 vocal tracks have instrumentals provided plus bonus instrumentals “Sumr” & “No Subshine”. I’m proud to finally present to you all ST/MiC’s “In The Pocket”. Enjoy.
