For the past two months I have hit replay on this album day after day like religion. I think that its been just enough time for me to digest the fullness and freshness of this beautiful piece of sonic art. Terry D by Thriftworks takes electronic music to a new level of passion, a new height of creation. With impeccable production and mastering, Terry D is an album to spend some time with. Bubbling synths and magical sweeps, wrapped around twisted hip hop and poetic sound frames characterize this fascinating release.
Pick up the album digitally here. Name your price!
Luckily for those of us who have been patiently waiting, Thriftworks has just released his newest collection of sounds. In this rare and exquisite mix, filled with mostly unreleased music, Thriftworks takes us on a journey of magnificent proportion. Wow… Upside down that’s Mom. Wow.
Peep some ultra rare footage below. We have BluPrint moving, DayDreams singing and Thriftworks cranking!
Last time we spoke about the very rare and talented North West Based producer, Keyboard Kid, he had just released his album #RARE DROPS FROM THE SUN, which was a huge release for him halfway through December, 2012. Since then has been hard at work in the studio and recently released TWO new albums. The first one I’d like to present is called DON’T LEAVE BASEDWORLD. This is a 27 track album compiled of really smooth, atmospheric, beats that ultimately touch on the mellower side of Basedworld and leave you feeling nicely chilled out. My favorite track off this album would have to be Corpse Bride. This track opens up with a ghostly female voice nicely chopped up, and then the beat promptly drops in, perfectly fitting right behind the sample. What really left a footprint of Corpse Bride in my memory is the heavy bass line that’s got such an old school analog sound to it. It’s downright dirty. Check it out, you’ll know just what I’m talking about.
Here is what Keyboard Kid had to say about DON’T LEAVE BASEDWORLD…
“This Album Is #Rare, Treat It As Such..Let It Guide You On Your Based Journey..These Are Musical Scores For Your Lifes Movie.. This Music Is For The Based Community.. The True Based Supporters. The BasedGod Has Told Me To Spread The Based Knowledge And The Positivity.. Stay In BasedWorld..It’s Hell Outside….It’s Hot Whoadie.. It’s Hell On Earth..But I Got The Heata..Don’t Leave BasedWorld..Protect Me.. Protect Lil B..We Will Protect You.” – Keyboard Kid
Next up is Keyboard Kid’s latest album (released 12/1/13) Noah Calhoun. While DON’T LEAVE BASEDWORLD carried a darker tone throughout the entirety of the album, Noah Calhoun is the opposite of that. I’d call this an album of purely inspirational beats. Each track makes me feel like I could climb a mountain…like I could sail around the world tomorrow…like I could win the Olympics with no training…It makes feel like Noah Calhoun.
“I’M SO #RARE AND SO PRETTY..MY BEATS ARE THE BEST..FUCK U BITCH..IM THE FINEST BITCH..IM FINER THAN MY BITCH..I’M A BLONDE BEAUTIFUL BITCH” – Keyboard Kid

Banditz are on a roll this year! With inspiration drawn from just about every aspect of life, Dozur and J Hanna have brought another beautifully crafted piece of art for your ears. This time, it’s a remix they have done for Cleveland’s genre-limitless beat master, Self Help. The remix is crisp, fresh, a little faster than the original, and really leaves you feeling the energy put into this tune. Check it out! While you’re taking in our small sample of the song, please enjoy the visual art of what Cape Cassandra looks like (sunset hours)! Our homie, Big Blunt, of Thumbnugget put the image together for us. Big ups to everyone involved with this project!
SHARE THE MUSIC LOVE!!
…and here is the Cape Cassandra original…
Get your feet moving!
More from Banditz and Self Help coming soon…
“THEN I TURNED INTO A FISH THE WITH CODEINE GILLS”
Thumbnugget brings another trippy video featuring extra rare footage of Cleveland’s very own Codeine Ocean. Enjoy.
This post is a little bit different than most of my others. These 3 tunes below aren’t bass heavy, they’re not dark, and they don’t have any wobbles. These beautifully crafted remixes have a very unique sound. The producer Pogo a.k.a. Nick Bertke takes sound clips from a set movie or show, chops and tunes them to his liking, then builds funky, melodic and beautiful tunes. The best part is, it’s not only music! The videos are edited to follow along with the song. Below are three that I found to be really cool, there are MANY more on his youtube channel though.

Enjoy these beautiful, positive songs!
Ohhhh man, big ups to Thumbnugget AKA DJ Beatz Off,The Blumpking, and Big Blunt coming from right here in Cleveland Heights, Ohio!! Above is possibly the most based video/song to come out of Cleveland and is filled with eerie vibes and massive wobbles. DJ Beatz Off, AKA Joe Manfredi, puts his own spin on Hip-Hop production with a lot of influences coming from Dubstep, needless to say, Thumbnugget is definitely ahead of the game in terms of production. As for the video, it is really well put together and as I watched it over a few times I began to notice a ton of intricacies that really did make it look like it was done professionally. Every aspect of this music video is sooooo based, big ups Thumbnugget! Check out their facebook page here!
Digiraatii have been absolutely murdering the Electro scene as of lately and our friend K-Wil just put together a very based music video for their latest tune! Now I don’t get down with a ton of Electro House but seriously each tune that the the Columbus based duo put out is so huge, sooo many glitchy synths and wobbles. Check out the video below and if you haven’t been to a Digiraatii show yet, after watching this you’ll know it’s a must. Big ups to K-Wil, Digiraatii, and Smoke Screen. Big tune!
