Its not very often i post anything other than mixtapes on here, but over the past few months myself and good friend biz (aka toobiz aka the pirate of richmond aka worst guy ever etc) have been putting in some time in the studio making some music that we are truly prepared to stand behind. Both of us have been very active in the local music scene over the past 8-10 years, both of us are part of 7 piece Jazz/Funk?hip-Hop band , both of us were involved in Mindfield (Crackhouse) and both of us have also had other side projects to keep us busy over the last few years, but we also both seemed to want to try and push our music into some different directions, and over time we have realized that direction was very similar, so we have formed Decades, below is the first releases we have to offer, the first is a quick sneak peak at the title track from the album and the second is a free track (available in wav and mp3 format) entitled Enjoy the Ride, we have chosen these 2 tracks to start with as they offer what we feel is a good insight into some of the range we feel we can offer. please feel free to leave any feedback, be it positive or negative
peace dL

Birthday Beats

It was mine and my man doobz's birthday over the week end, so we caught up on Sunday night, put a 100 minute tape in the deck, pressed record and four of us played a few tracks, apologies for part 2's 10 minute Diamond D juggle we thought the tape was about to run out :)

Oishi Stylus Part 2

This is the second half of the mixtape I made the other day, I re-recorded it thinking a needle had played up, but it turns out it was the tape we recorded it on, so I have uploaded it anyway, as with the last side, this was all recorded live, all freestyled and all off of vinyl. The mix is my small tribute to some of my favorite NY beats from days past to present.

OIshi Stylus

So the other night we decided that we needed to make a Japanese Hip Hop mixtape, so we burnt down a few, put a tape in the deck and went for it. All recorded live in doobz's kitchen (with the speakers in the lounge for that added rawness), so there are a few little hiccups in the mixing, but the tape still bangs! The other side should be uploaded soon (we had a small issue with one needle only coming through on one side so I need to try and fix that before i post it)

the tape features tracks from Mitsu, Gagle, Gortex, Dj Muro, Dj Krush, Grooveman Spot and many more
