So the 64 bar fam keep themselves extra busy, all day every day. And it’s the task of your loveable blog author to spread and share their activies for all to see. Today, its yet anpther remix from Remi and a new track from Herma Puma, which 64bar beat maker Stubby Dials is part of. And finally, there’s a remix from Hint, who was half of the Olympic Cyclone Band from 64:5.
Now rocking the moniker Pete Sasqwax, this is a man with a long ole history in hip-hop. And that means a long ole interview.
They lit up 64:5 with three ridiculously hot tracks, and have a pair of EP’s coming out in the next couple of weeks via Junodownload.com so 64bar spent some time chatting to Cosmo Lopez. (that’s the handsome one on the left of the picture above)
You’ll notice that this blog has had a lick of paint. We switched from Monchrome theme to Duster, how’s it look?
This blog started up in May 2010. It had 300 or so views in the first month. It then lay dormant until the launch of 64:4 when it had 800 views in both October and November. February saw figures reach the 1000 mark for the first time, and with 21 days of March gone, the blog has had 1400 visitors.
The result of the poll is
That means that the sixth mix will be super close in tempo to the original 64 bar challenge mix, which was 108 bpm. It seems there is a need for speed amongst the voters… 64:4 was 88bpm, 64:5 was 98 bpm, and now 64:6 will be 110bpm.
Already confirmed to get involved is a real rogues gallery. Remdog – in. Proof of Concept in. KAL – in, Becy, Techdef, James++ … all in.
There’s a few new faces in the cast list and all told, there’s about 25 people confirmed on the mix, all will be revealed soon..
To submit a track, use this link by June 1, 2011. Make it 64 bars long @ 110 bpm.. then tag on an 8 bar intro and 8 bar percussive outro to faciliate a lovely smooth mix that doesnt cut into people’s tracks too much.
