Our super home girl and artist/fashion icon Deer Dana asked Dr. Ew for a mix tape for the month of December. Behold an icy cold 26 minutes featuring a bit of where my ears are at lately. Including two fresh HPNTK tracks and a new Young Jeezy single and all the Future Thugs darkness you can expect.
Original badman Future Thug John Bean comes through with a tight blend of Body Work by Juicy J, Meek Mill and French Montana with Koopa Shell by Royal T.
John Bean’s diy acapella version of Body Work has already been downloaded 1000’s of times but there’s only a few remixes we’ve heard over here. John’s always reppin’ Philly so it’s no coincidence he picked a track featuring Philly’s own Meek Mill to make a blend with. Blast this track in the club or at 4am in your bedroom.
John Bean has been living the good life over in Amsterdam for the past two years but is set to return to the States over the summer. He maintains www.futurethugs.bandcamp.com as well as being the co-founder of the Future Thugs crew along with Dr. Ew. Be on the look out for this man slaying decks upon arrival.
Yo! This is Dr. Ew speaking, I want to tell you about a party I throw Real Time Live Hardware and Beats. My entry way into electronic music completely comes from the drum machines and synths used to build 80’s Hip Hop and Industrial music. Likewise my journey to production, while taking place in a completely digital world, began with hardware and tape machines. Paying homage to this journey and the genuine love of performing music live and creating my own sounds, the idea for the party Real Time was conceived. It started as an idea between John Bean and I but the Real Time show became ‘realized’ after John had moved to Amsterdam with the supreme partnership of fellow Philly DJ’s and Producers: Speaker for the Dead, Applejuce and freshly knighted Future Thug, Bombé. Together we run the event every 2nd Thursday at Kung Fu Necktie in Philadelphia.
One of our first guests, Mr. Manic, wrote up a real nice article/show review about our most recent event where we featured M.A.R.S., an Electronic Music Ensemble of Community College of Philadelphia, comprised of students and led by Philly-bred-world-renowned DJ/Producer Starkey, who also is a professor at CCP. Check out the article for the full scoop on M.A.R.S., what we do at Real Time and more about how the whole thing got started and is all linked together.
