...otherwise known as 'San Francisco Southpaw Symphony'. This is a megamix production I made for San Francisco based producer Controller 7, who has worked extensively with Anticon (mainly in the late 90's and early 00's, producing for Sole, Sage Francis and so on) and Bully Records. I'd been really into his music for a long time (starting with his beat tape 'Left Handed Straw'), and got in touch about buying a screen printed t-shirt off him. One thing led to another and I ended up making this mix! I used the regular tools of my trade, and this one's made almost entirely on the MPC. Took a while, and it was great fun to make. You can listen to Controller "Tommy" 7's music through links on his website, which you should peep too:
He's a great guy, check him out if you get some time. Well worth listening to for some drum heavy psyched out San Fran excellence.
