Usually I wouldn’t post up production this stripped down and short but when it’s from one of the production outfits responsible for shaping Toronto’s 90s hip-hop sound, I openly make an exception. Down 2 Erf aka production duo ‘The Twins” and emcee Mathematik gave us some of Toronto’s sickest 90s era hip-hop records: from Citizen Kane’s“Reality & Facts” and “Structure, Foundation” to “Learn 2 Earn” and “Rhyme Training” with Mathematik. I have no idea whether they’re releasing new material or even coming back together; I just happened to randomly stumble on this soundcloud page where you can hear several other beat snippets that were recently posted. Hopefully we see/hear more from these guys in the future.. meantime, enjoy.
In the meantime, if you are interested in seeing Famous in a turban, stranded on a desert or the best Shaggy impersonation in town, go to www.RoadToCenterStage.com and follow my voyage to Center Stage.

“Butta Breath” An Expedition Through The Soul – EP RELEASE
Toronto, Canada – June 26th, 2012 MC/Producer Die-Rek’s sound takes you on an expedition through the soul with work that is laced with intrigue, emotion, authentic bass lines, cutting edge drums, and impacting arrangements. He is definitely an artist well beyond his time.
Every song is a tale of its own and addresses themes of foundation, sacrifice, triumph and ultimately reign. “Butta Breath” the EP is true “heart and soul” music. The project bears no trace of compromise and holds true to the very essence of that genuine classic era of hip hop.
Die-Rek’s defining tone and thought provoking lyricism combined on this 90% sample free project stands as a testament to the authenticity of the one of a kind rhythmic edge his work embodies.
Distributed and available through www.FatBeats.com and on iTunes this project is one that you do not want to let pass you by.
It’s a song of revolution and precision- “Butta Breath”
