Ok, friends, here it is…and I didn’t know it was coming either, so let’s just have some fun with this one.
This is ‘5ive On The Black Hand Side’, a collection of five tracks I made in the last 36 hours all inspired by Blaxploitation films, soundtracks, and style. I’d like to think of it as an introduction to a bit of my style as a producer. The zip #also has six covers, so you can freak it on your iPod how you want.
I hope you enjoy it.

I’m uploading the zip of this right now and will be posting it here tonight. 5 tracks, yo, from concept to posting in approximately 36 hours. Yup. I friggin love making music, man. I’m glad to offer this little instrumental offering to y’all, man. If you dig it, share it with whomever you feel would feel like you do about it.
I really wanna send a bog shout out to Mr. Kinetik who pushed me back into considering making tracks about six months ago. We were in the car and I was playing some ‘tracks’ I had made on a four track utilizing my buddy, Paul Bunyon’s oooold mixer with about 4 seconds of sample time. When he said, “Man, we could rhyme to some of these…”, I was like, “#Maby?…” but the sound quality is so lo-fi, and actually, a lot of it was made specifically to be heard instrumentally.
Due to the limitations of the equipment, I was forced to learn how to count the beats out (something I do naturally, but when it comes to making beats live, chopping loops and stuff, you gotta know where you are or you’re not making a ‘track’, you’re making noise…’on beat’.), trigger samples and parts live, all the way thru, learned a bit about mixing down a tape on a multitrack recorder…this was a while back, man. Basically I was making a ‘pause tape’ on a four-track.
I use a lotta those same techniques now. I made all the rhythm beds for every track on the ‘The Tinkerer’ live on my turntables. Every rhythm bed is performed on the turntables live, chopping loops, flashing, blending the breaks with a sample…and then the instrumentation was added. In all honesty, the idea of adding instrumentation was totally foreign to me. I don’t have musical equipment and at the time, I didn’t even have a Midi keyboard. Shit done changed and I’m teaching myself more techniques. ‘The Tinkerer’ is Tesla, figuring things out…working on it, and if you ask me, doing not too bad. (I’m really happy with it.)
‘5ive On The Black Hand Side’ is a different in a few ways. 1) I learned how to chop and loop on my computer, so all these were actually composed in Garageband. 2) I got a Midi keyboard now, woo! 3) No rappin, yo…tracks.
I’m releasing this cuz I love ya and I had a great time making it. Hope you enjoy it. The zip will be posted before midnight, #Naptown time, tonight.
Rusty givin y’all 5 tracks tonight…fonkay.
Stay tuned…and every cat in this crew is focused…
#ATFU - we work.
We rock with Thess and all of the Drum Snobs family.
Thess reps Chitown and #SHRUGLIFE LOVELY. He’s a cold reggae DJ and his production is otherworldly in terms of dopeness. He contributed the track ‘Stir It Up…Again (Mumia Abu-Jamal)’ to the Mr. Kinetik/Rusty Redenbacher project. When you hear it or his weekly reggae podcast, ‘Slackness Sundaze’, you will understand why it is essential that you hit the link and #GetAligned with our brother, Thess…
We will be posting the link to Thess’ free album, ‘While I Was Curling My Blunt’ for you here as soon as possible, but as for now, hit the links and follow the homey on here and on Twitter.
