The Beatz and Lyrics Show Presents:“Beatz &Lyrics 2 Go”
The Official A3C Mixtape sponsored by Unique Squared
Atlanta’s longest-running Hip-Hop show representing quality hip hop music – The Beatz & Lyrics Show with Jayforce , is back with a new A3C Festival Mixtape. Last year’s project featured contributions by over 40 emcees, producers and musicians who came together in less than a week to record the 12-track project of all original music. The 2009 Beatz and Lyrics A3C mixtape was a celebration of the show’s 10th year on the air. After its success, Executive Producer Amond Jackson decided to make this years’ edition just as special.
The 2009 Beatz and Lyrics 10th anniversary A3C mixtape was recorded in 72 hours at Salem Psalms Library in Atlanta, Ga. This year’s mission was to record the mixtape on site at the festival. With help from Unique Squared, one of the leaders in pro audio gear, the team brought out an RV stocked with all of the best gear from AVID/DigiDesign (creators of Protools), Native Instruments, Focusrite, JBL, M Audio, Mackie and custom sound treatment from Auralex to create a professional recording studio that could travel to the Festival. Once the RV was assembled (Assembling the RV) ,recording started at 4 a.m. October 7th with Dungeon Family group The 5ive and did not stop until Sunday morning, as the Festival ended.
The Beatz and Lyrics Show did a special 5 hour show Saturday night and Tallahassee's WFVS 89.7 FM Underground Rail Road Show, did interviews outside the RV while MC’s recording in the mobile studio booth was broadcast live into the venue. Also a documentary about Independent music was filmed inside the RV. The film will be posted on Kevinnnotingham.com, which also hosted Unique Squared’s Beat Competition that gave away a custom Native Instruments Maschine to producer Tall Black Guy . The track he produced became a lead song for the project called Star Struck by 4ize.
This year’s mixtape features contributions from over 70 different artists and producers. Artists like Camp Lo, Artifacts, J-Live, Aleon Craft, and Sha Stimuli recorded tracks and other notables such as 9th Wonder, DJ Toomp, and DJ Evil Dee checked in (A3C Wrap-up). Production team The Dynamite Brothers (J Haze and Amond Jackson) put the mix tape together and DJ Precyse provided all of the cuts.
Founded in 1999, The Beatz & Lyrics Show with Jay Force airs every other Saturday on Atlanta’s WRFG 89.3 FM from 10pm-1am EST. Since its inception, the show has focused on providing the necessary balance missing from mainstream hip hop radio. The show's strength and popularity is found in the freedom and ability of Jay Force to play the best music from commercialy visible and independent Hip-Hop artists. The freedom to introduce new talent and implement creative ideas has been the one of the primary keys to the radio show's popularity . “Over the years, the primary focus of the Beatz & Lyrics show was to continue to provide that balance while leaving the door open for the newcomers to be heard,” says the show’s founder and host DJ Jayforce.
“We’re purely driven by the quality of music. We’ve never sold out our integrity and our determination to support good music and push the culture forward.” Those outside of the Atlanta area can catch the Beatz & Lyrics show live at www.WRFG.org or as a podcast at http://beatzandlyrics.podomatic.com.
