My name is B.durazzo. I am a 23 year old drummer/guitarist/hip-hop producer from Oakland, CA moonlighting as a middle school music teacher. I am inspired by the likes of Pete Rock, RJD2, Madlib, J-Dilla, Nujabes, and many other folks in the classic hip-hop vein.
Over the last few years, my live beat videos have developed a strong youtube following with over 600,000 views collectively. You can watch one of my latest live routines utilizing two AKAI MPC drum machines simultaneously.
I-20's latest mixtape "Celebrity Rehab" is being released exactly one week from today, February 15th hosted by djbooth.net. Here goes one more leak before the tape hits, "The Meaning" produced by DJ Pain 1.
Last week Cris Cab released his new mixtape, Echo Boom. The response was so strong, his website (www.criscab.com) was unable to handle the traffic and crashed 3 times. Due to overwhelming demand, one week and a new server later, we have a super fast reliable download link for everyone who still has not downloaded or has been having trouble doing so.
Use the link at the end of this sentence for a new reliable quick download link of Echo Boom.
While management was taking care of the technical issues, Cris continued his Winter Touring. Here is Episode 3 of his "Winter Tour" series which features Cris in Burlington, VT paying tribute to Sublime with his live cover version of "What I Got".
