Beatnotik Mixtape Vol 3 Khalil/Livin' Proof - Thinking too much

Beatnotik never stops and comes up with new Mixtape Volume 3 - Thinking Too Much!
This time is the turn of Khalil/Livin' Proof...As he says "Every one's got all the same tunes these days anyway so it's really about HOW you play them" - Khalil's style is unique, seamlessly going from tune to tune, genre to genre effortlessly. He will keep the vibe going, keep your body moving but will keep you on your toes for the next track. Predictable he is NOT!  

An integral member of London’s finest True School hip hop night Livin’ Proof, I play the best true school hip hop, new jack swing and 80's soul.He started life as a dj running and dj’ing at successful hip hop club night Ill Commotion in 2003. The three man promotion / dj team (myself, Dj Rags and CSY) hosted nights for the likes of Technics, UK beatbox Championships, label showcases for Sony BMG & Sony Columbia as well as press showcases / album launches for the likes of The X-ecutioners, Sway, Killa Kela and Foreign Beggars.

This lead to residencies and club sets across London, work as the tour dj (along with fellow ill commotion dj Rags) for Dudley Perkins & Georgia Anne Muldrow’s 2006 European tour, and my 2008 Ill Commotion / THTC mixtape, which graced the cover of Hip hop Connection Magazine. But as a dj, i like to keep an open mind to music and not get pigeonholed as a hip hop dj. Whilst maintaining my hip hop roots, my number one objective is to get people dancing and i love to play anything from electro, bmore and jackin house, to mashup party sets fusing genres geared towards the dancefloor.  i've been fortunate to play across London’s club scene with gigs at many prestigious clubs including Fabric Live, Together at Turnmills, The End, Cargo, The Westbury, Herbal, Bungalow 8, The Westbury, The coronet, 333, Kabaret, Chalk at Scala, Work It, Shepherds Bush empire, Queen of Hoxton, Koko, APT and ministry of sound to name a few, as well as sets throughout the country and trips abroad with gigs in Paris (le Triptique), Budapest, Zurich, New York City, Prague, Kosice (slovakia) and Germany  And have played alongside greats such as Justice, Stanton Warriors, J-Rocc (beat junkies), The Nextmen, SebastiAn, Herve, The X-ecutioners, Hot Chip, Scratch Perverts, Dj Yoda, The Foals, Foreign Beggars, Stones Throw, Mystery Jets, Sway, Evil Dee, Atmosphere, Scratch (the Roots), Digitalism, Norman Jay, Bugz in the Attic, Kissy Sell Out, Plump Djs, Herve, Roxy Cottontail, Duke Dumont, Breakbot (ed banger), Afu-Ra, Vadim, DJ Format, Tre Hardson (The Pharcyde), OH NO & Rocc C (stones throw), Roots Manuva, Sinden, etc etc

Enjoy his Mixtape he did for Beatnotik!!

Buscando La Senda Segura! Us here at the Beatnotik HQ have teamed up with one of our close, personal friends, Cuban musician, producer and emcee Kumar Sublevao-Beat to put together a series of short films shot all over the Barceloneta district in Barcelona. This series of videos were shot in different parts of Kumar 's hood with live and on location production from the expat Cubano. Hard hitting, big MPC beats and soulful vibes produced in, and set to the backdrop of, one of Europes most beautiful cities. This is just part one! Expect more great beats and special guests in the coming chapters... 


Kumar Afro-Cuban mc and urban music producer Kumar Sublevao Beat started his career during the 90's boom of hip hop in Havana. Influenced by Afro-Latin jazz, reggae, Afro-beat, funk and soul, Kumar's sound is a sophisticated combination of traditional drumming samples, synths and live instruments. Sublevao Beat's first release "De Pelicula Barrio "(LP, Universal Music), toured extensively to important shows around the world and received a great welcome from both audiences and the media. Now Sublevao beat is back with "Patakin," a new album where his search has turned to the roots of African spirituality. During his career he has collaborated with different artists such Ojos de Brujo, Last Poets, Perico Sambeat, Jimi Tenor,Omar sosa, Terracota and Indee Styla.

The other face of Kumar Afrikun, new audiovisual project by mc, beat and video maker Kumar Sublevao-Beat along with multi-instrumentalists duo, Machete Horns revisits the diversity of African music, paying tribute to several tribes and regions of the continent.

Mos Def aka Yasiin Bey

After almost two decades in the game Yasiin Bey, formerly known as Mos Def, has seen many ups and downs in the ever demanding music industry without compromising his art. Due to his thought-provoking rhymes in regards to social and political issues, the Brooklyn native belongs to hip-hop’s elite rhymesayers. Having recently rejoined with his frequent partner in rhyme Talib Kweli to resurrect Black Star and a new series called Top 40 is officially making its mark on the music game. We caught up with Yasiin and conversed about his latest music endeavors.

What can we expect from your new series Top 40 Underdogs and what inspired it?
I am doing this for the culture. The tradition, taking someone’s song and making your version out of it, is not new to hip-hop. It is similar to dancehall music, where there is one rhythm and many artists offer their interpretation of it. Covering songs is certainly in the DNA of the culture. 50 Cent, as a matter of fact, built his name in New York for awhile doing just that. I also like the community mind aspect of it that it belongs to all of us. It basically gives and extends the life of our culture, our rhythm. Thus, this series is something that comes quite natural for me to do. I’ve done it before. Just look at “Children’s Story,” or even my version of Jay-Z’s “Takeover” in 2004. It is something that is really fun to do, you know, giving different perspectives on a familiar piece. There are a lot of songs on Top 40 Radio, not just in current day charts, that I have been a fan of and obviously my content is a lot different from what people would hear on Top 40 Radio to say the least. That being said, I am a fan of music and I seek for just another opportunity to express myself and give my point of view on certain things.

Can you open up on the content of the series? Is it under one common theme or just a compilation of distinct songs?
Regarding the content on the Top 40 Underdog, I cannot open up too much on it, but let’s say it will not be just about reinterpreting or even reappropriating modern day hits. It will deal with a range of various subjects, covering socially conscious and political themes since it is a staple in my life and an expression of who I am. I am observing and experiencing life and I express it in this form. Hip-hop to me is just one medium of expression for me. Although I am an artist and I work in various disciplines, I am enthusiastic about my culture, which is hip-hop. It is very dear to me since it started out local.

How do you feel about the global takeover?
It is great, especially since there was no intention or ambition like this from the core group. They started it, enjoyed it, cultivated it with no ambition to dominate the world. It was an expression for us by us. And now everybody is doing it. However, growth has positives but it also has its challenges. Growth has to be managed. Like any other resource it can also be mismanaged or it can manage the people that have it. The better it gets, the better it needs to be. It is good to grow but you have to be mindful. Don’t just grow for the growth’s sake.

You have been linking back up with Talib Kweli lately and have started to put out songs as Black Star once again. How did you get back together with him?
Talib and I have always worked on a project or song here and there ever since we started as Black Star. We always did shows together and whatnot. We have been close friends for at least 15 years now. There is no pressure whatsoever. We didn’t form our identities as solo artists to start the group. Kweli was a solo artist, I was a solo artist and we came together and produced Black Star much in the same tradition that you have seen with jazz collaborations. John Coltrane and Don Cherry teamed up with a group of artists to do one specific project. And that was the real intention behind Black Star. I like what this guy is doing. I have always liked his approach – his skill – and I like what he’s doing and what he has to say. But now it feels like the right time for Black Star to come back. My sentiment was always like Black Star has always been a special time and space for both of us as men and artists. If we want to do it, then we have to do it for the right reasons. We don’t want to come back solely on the basis that people wanted it or a big check. In our professional and personal space we are very open and clear. Kweli is completely independent, no label, no obligation and it is good to have this full circle, having even more control to do what we actually want to do. I am excited.

What is the status of the album?
We are in the studio all the time and we will continue putting out songs on a regular basis. I appreciate the anticipation. Making an album is very time-consuming and requires lots of energy. Even recording one single song demands inner vision and takes up two or three sessions for one cut. Then comes the mixing and sound engineering process on top of that. Just keep in mind that both of us, we have a perfectionist streak. So yea, we are on the road and in the studio and we hope to get it out as soon as possible. It is also great to witness all the people with us in the studio being enthusiastic about it. I think it is one of the great things about Black Star because we never did Black Star because we wanted to as opposed as we needed to. Me and Kweli have one of the best working relationships I ever had with another artist. Kweli has such a tremendous amount of energy and we are getting better with what we do.

What is your working chemistry with Talib Kweli?
What Kweli and I do, we basically just hang out, taking the same space, listen to music and express enthusiasm on music, picking instrumentals. Hence, the process is pretty organic. My man and I are getting together and having a good time. Then we get into work mode which is really exciting and I think that we push each other in positive ways. Kweli is pretty much a self starter and then I get on it. I have a lot of fun working with him and I’m always surprised how it is always going better. There is never any rap star beef. Things are genuine and pleasant between us, even after a decade in the game together.

Indee Styla - Un punto de luz Video LP Indeecios

Un punto de luz, tercer video clip de Indee Styla de su LP Indeecios.

Indee Styla, originalidad en mano, hiphop en el corazón, alma mestiza, el Latin Nu-Soul llega desde la escena Barcelonesa con voz propia. Evolución constante, un estilo depurado donde se mezclan sin tabús rap, reggae, nu-soul, hip hop y dance hall. Un parkour frenético donde tema tras tema Indee desafía la gravedad, bailando sin vergüenzas sobre los rostros de la convención y las etiquetas!

Indeecios, concentrado de elegancia femenina a lo largo de 13 tracks calientes, comprometidos, sensuales, energéticos y minuciosos! Producciones atrevidas y llenas de colores de las manos de Kumar, Zemo (Barcelona, Beroots Bangers), Sr TCee (Madrid, VKR), los brasileños Slim Rimografia y Xuxa Levy, virtuoso productor de Sao Paolo. 13 tracks sorprendentes donde las depuradas técnicas de producción se entremezclan con los suaves tonos instrumentìsticos de “El Congo” (Patrice y Tony Allen) o Carlos Sarduy (Ojos de brujo) en las trompetas.El jazzista Ariel Bringuez al saxo, Juan Rodríguez (Diego el Cigala)a la batería, Nuria Bota (Ex RootsMama) al bajo y Tikogó a las percusiones y birimbao.

Indee Styla esta aquí, mujer en estado puro, garra y sensualidad, mensaje y compromiso sobrevuelan la ciudad en simbiosis perfecta. Como si de su concierto se tratara, entre movimientos desarticulados, si estas listo para la batalla grita “FIRE”.

Instrumental de Zemo(Beroots Bangers)
