Bionic Takes Us on A Fantasy Sunrise (or the Night Drive Home) • Word Is Bond

Here comes the man Bionic again with another beat tape and this time around he gives us a different feel entirely. The tape titled Sunrise (or The Night Drive Home) is a package of emotions in sound. Basically, Bionic who also tucks in his cape to work as a lawyer desires to escape with his significant other to an exotic place and just chill. This fantasy of his set the tone for the beats conjured up to serve as the theme music for this eldorado he continuously dreams of. You have to be able to breathe and let go to feel what the beats emit and actually dwell in the fantasy world created by Bionic. Y’all know how much I love beat tapes so try this one for size.

Beat Rabbi releases final project Mazel Tov Cocktail

The bad news… Beat Rabbi has retired from beat making. The good news… Mazel Tov Cocktail is here via Illect Recordings! It’s an appropriate send off to one of our favorite producers. 31 tracks including a Deepspace5 posse cut.

Beat Rabbi shares, “I assume other producers have been in a similar situation where they have a number of beats they really like that have been repeatedly passed over by rappers for years and they think, I really would like to get these joints out there and heard so people know all the kinds of sounds and styles I’ve experimented with, even if a rapper doesn’t want to rhyme on it. That’s how this project started, though it expanded beyond just that. But being that I hung up the beat making trade years ago, I needed the right person to edit, mix and master these beats – and spice them up to make them presentable. DJ Sean P is that dude for me – I have so much respect for his ear, style and talent and was blessed that enthusiastically signed up for the task. So hear it is – some Beat Rabbi as you have and haven’t heard him before, topped off with some Sean P funk.

PREMIERE: Teck-Zilla “Soul Buttah” beat tape

We’re proud to present a streaming premiere for Teck-Zilla’s Soul Buttah beat tape.

Nigerian-based producer Teck-Zilla delivers a new beat tape that can be best described by the words used in its title. Soul Buttah is exactly that—a project boasting soulful, buttery smooth instrumentals that blend classic Boom bap with modern, trap-leaning sounds for something wholly unique.

Soul Buttah is more than the latest beat tape from Teck-Zilla, though. It also represents his career coming full circle, as it’s the direct sequel to his debut, Souled Off: A Dedication to Molly Molls. It’s also the second of three tapes he plans on dropping this year (peep JetSoul Musique from earlier this year if you’ve been sleeping).

Musically, Soul Buttah carries Teck’s tradition of marrying different sounds to make one that’s all his own. And while we could praise each individual joint on here, it’s those with beat-switches like “Soul Buttah Medley” and “Northwood Soul” that are sure to pull you in during a cursory spin. That’s all part of Teck’s plan, of course. He created “Northwood Soul” as he was “looking for that laid-back feel but with tiny switch-ups and all that.”

The “all that” he’s referring to are what make the track so immediately engaging, because it feels like you’re listening to the producer creating it on the spot. It’s an experimental, jolting listen, and it’s just one of the reasons heads are sure to love diggin’ into each portion of Soul Buttah.

Soul Buttah is now available through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms via Str8Buttah Productions!

2. Beat Cheese
3. Soul Buttah Medley
4. Butterfly Dreams
5. To Damita Jo, with Love

About Tee-Wyla

Joshua Toala (pka Tee-Wyla), has composed numerous works for television, and commercials, many of which have been found on prime time programs for networks such as NBC,CBS, ABC, ESPN, VH1, BET, MTV, Radio 1 programming, and other major cable networks. Since 2002, Joshua has regularly accepted commissions for and scored music for independent film, and production companies, landing him frequent submissions for sitcoms, and database work with creative services for Viacom. While he has never formally studied music composition, he credits his curiosity and for all music and his love for God as being pivotal to his success as a composer and music producer. His most notable works include music appearing throughout the NBA Finals, The 2016 Olympics, UEFA CUP, World Cup, and several BET Award shows.

In addition to his successful licensing career, Joshua spends his time working as a hip-hop producer / instrumentalist under the name Tee-Wyla, releasing several instrumental projects, and is always finding ways to collaborate with other artists in every genre. His musical style varies from acoustic music, to classical string arrangements, interactive-sound installations, and literally everything in between, and while his musical influences are deeply rooted in electronic music, he utilizes non-traditional techniques and processes to compose works that don’t squarely align with any single genre or style, creating hybrid sounds incorporating, bluegrass, rock, folk, and technology.
