Live from the Control Room is a Bay Area based hip hop production platform created by Quality Control Marketing and pro audio school SAE. The Live from the Control Room series includes a 16 producer beat battle, concert series, a string of music videos, and a professionally produced EP featuring the Bay Area’s top MC’s paired up with the hottest up and coming producers.

The first phase of the series was the “Live from the Control Room” Producer Battle and concert, which took place this past September. The battle was comprised of 16 up and coming producers from the Bay Area, with the judging panel comprised of four of the top MC’s – A-Plus (Souls of Mischief/Hieroglyphics), Lateef the Truthspeaker (Latyrx/Quannum), Moe Green (iM/Out Crowd), and DaVinci (SWTBRDS/Thorobred). The top 4 producers from the battle then were paired with the four MC’s to record and create an EP and video series. Stay tuned for brand new videos chronicling the recording of the official “Live from the Control Room” EP, filmed by the one and only Casual from Hieroglyphics and Roy Miles Jr.. Look out for the EP to be released early 2012, and the final video from the winning tandem of Lambo Gott Em and A-Plus.

TORONTO – Masia One, one of Canada’s most recognizable musical talents is ready to introduce the world to her new sound, new look, and most importantly, new music from her upcoming LP Bootleg Culture (release date April, 2012).  Following up her critically acclaimed first single “Warriors Tongue” which was set in the Philippines, her second single “Alright Ok!” is dedicated to Jamaica, and begins with a dedication to “the beautiful people of Jamaica.  Put down the guns, pull up the light.”.

Produced by Grammy Award winner Che Vicious (Dr. Dre, Eminem, 50 Cent), Masia’s melodic vocals blend perfectly to Che’s smooth production and crispy drums.  The result is a record that is equal parts groove and style.  Having just leaked to radio, fans are eagerly anticipating the visuals to go along with what is sure to be on many “best of 2012 so far” lists.

MP3: MUMBLS - "Spellbound"

MP3: MUMBLS - "Spellbound"

Courtesy Audible Treats.

Berkeley, California, has been a breeding ground for some of the most original and polarizing hip-hop released in recent memory. Enter: MUMBLS. The 22-year old rapper is the protégé of Bay Area legend Andre Nickatina, and is the latest product to emerge from Berkeley, pulling from its rich cultural and musical diversity – not to mention the penchant of its citizens to engage in some good, old-fashioned, recreational drug use.

MUMBLS recently released the video for "Parachute," a song inspired by innovatively taking MDMA in paper towel capsules, and now he's releasing "Spellbound," the second single from his Hella Novellas mixtape dropping March 6th. "Spellbound" picks up where "Parachute" left off, full of bluntly worded brag-raps about MUMBLS' (oddly dark) partying prowess. You think you can party with MUMBLS; but really, you have no idea.

"Spellbound," produced by Logan Foreal, is built around a sparse drum track and faint, echoing, and occasionally distorted synth plucks, all of which MUMBLS uses to give a highly detailed run down on his penchant for illicit recreation. "It's really just an unapologetic brag rap about how hard I party," describes MUMBLS, "I'm letting everyone know that, try as they may, they'll never truly hang with me on any level."
