    This has been kicking around for a minute but we kinda snoozed on posting: a fine collection of semi-recent vintage (i.e. late '90s through mid-00s) beats and demos from our dude Akalepse of Truth & Soul Records . Quality stuff - including previously unheard collabs with C Rayz Walz and vocalists Vinia Mojica (De La, Tribe) and Tiombe Lockhart (Platinum Pied Pipers, Cubic Zirconia) and some well-chosen sound bytes from American Splendor interspersed. For those in the Chicago area you can get ahold of the mix in actual physical cassette form at the Impala Sound Presents release soiree this Friday at Emporium Logan Square. The rest of youse listen below...



    Akalepse:

    I decided to put out a bunch of the stuff that has been sitting in the lab. These are all beats I made from somewhere between the late nineties and 2007ish. Also put some of the unfinished tunes that were recorded here on this, one with Vinia Mojica that she co produced, which we did in one night for a CMJ showcase we had at PROPS. Two tunes with my homegirl Tiombe Lockhart, one tune with the big homie C Rayz Walz, a freestyle iphone recording from PROPS of Renee Neufville over a beat i really like, and a tune with Hosanna Littlebird.
