House Shoes Presents... The Gift Volume III: EXT AKA Rudy Eckes

Ahhh man, another new producer brnging that heat! I love that House Shoes (who's no slouch himself on the beats) is puttin on new names man, for the third installment of his "The Gift" series he's puttin on Brooklyn-based soul producer EXT AKA Rudy Eckes; who is I could describe his beats in a sentence I'd say, something like Madlib meets Pete Rock with a twist of 9th Wonder in there..

Please peep this beautiful ass noize!!

Volume III of The Gift brings you Ext aka Rudy Eckes.
From raw loop chops to layered synths, Ext has all that a true beathead wants. And he said fuck being a lawyer. Imma make beats.

Video: Marco Polo ft. Organized Konfusion - 3-O-Clock

Wooooooow, who woulda thought that the one dynamic, boom bap producer of today that could get the legendary 90s duo of Organized Konfusion (Pharoah Monche & Prince Po) to link back up after a long hiatus would be ...Marco Polo?

I did.. def. did... he's already worked with just about every huge act from the 90s including Big Daddy Kane and Rakim among others, so why not Organized Konfusion?

Here Marco laces the raucus canvas for the duo to get loose on and the result is "3-O-Clock"; a fitting return for them.

Marco's "Port Authority 2: The Director's Cut" drops on November 12th people.. get ready!
