@ your request...

So I'm out of town again, rolling thru the Pacific Northwest on a Beat Binge. I'm actually making this post in an Internet Cafe. Saw Emancipator & DJ Vadim in Portland the night before last, a really, really good show at this super legit venue called "Holocene". He KILLED things, rocked his Korg & Guitar, and he had some dude with him that was cranking the Violin, it was hot! Talked with Doug (Emancipator) for a while, asked him about an interview & he was stoked, so stay tuned for that... Then rolled to Seattle where I'm at now for the Decibel Fest. Saw Tycho at the Seattle Art Museum last night which was EPIC. I have been wanting to see him perform for like 3 Years, & finally made it! It was soooo unbelievably good, he had Dusty Brown there to perform a couple songs with him, which was awesome. Dusty had a Moog synth, which was pretty insane, & he is a performer for sure, he oozes emotion on stage. Everything was perfect, never missed a beat, & the live visuals were amazing. PLEASE, if you ever have a chance to see Tycho, do not miss it & help support. He is one amazing person. I also spoke with him about an interview, & that should be coming up soon too. Anyway, there is a Dubstep show tonight, then on Saturday going to see Nosaj Thing & Daedelus, can't wait for that! Live Monome is going to be WILD. I'll have a MASSIVE update for y'all when I get back home. Tons of pictures & videos...

Now, onto some feelings from me. I'm fading away from wanting to post full albums from these favorite artists of mine, I actually feel pretty bad about it in a way, because they really do need support. Like, I saw Egadz at a show in Salt Lake, & he knew who I was, and he brought up me posting his albums. He said he understands what we're doing, but that it Really hurts. That made me feel REALLY bad, because I want to share & expose these artists to all of you that might not otherwise know about these artists. But try and do it without hurting them too much you know? & honestly, most of the time when I posted full albums, they were links that I found elsewhere, already uploaded. Usually the only thing I actually upload are my mixes, & tracks that I got direct from the artist... So anyway, I'm pretty much never going to post any full albums anymore from these artists that really matter to me. I know that doesn't make too much sense at this point, but after running into Egadz & hearing what he had to say, it really made me think about this. Everybody knows that music blogs are a tough situation, so I'm going to try something new. Interviews. Maybe try & work something out with the artists to get something exclusive happening here @ Strictly Beats, I'd really like to get Strictly at a point where it's like a Digital Magazine, stuff to read & learn about the artists, as opposed to just downloading their FULL albums. & always asking permission about things before posting. I'm sure a lot of you are shaking your heads at this, but it's how I feel & what I want to do. So expect to see some new things from me around here...

Alright, that's about it. I'll have an update sometime in the next week or so, & then work on the interviews shortly after that. I want to get Egadz, Emancipator & Tycho interviews up here soon. Please comment on this post, I want to hear what you all think & have to say about this idea. But, in the meantime, here is the new GUTS album. I've seen a lot of requests for it, & it is on a TON of other blogs, so I don't feel too bad about posting it up. I haven't listened to it yet, & won't be able to until I get home, so let me know if it's good! Alright, please comment & i'll catch up with everybody when I get back. PEACE!

GUTS - Freedom

@ Goodwill: Sorry about not getting back to you, just got your mails. Check yours, I got back to ya.

bluetint 3 (instrumentals)-NAWLEDGE WHERE YOU AT? VIDEO TOO

first an foremost, to make this post officially 'fresh' i present: the new record/video for a record taken from a new album from DEL and TAME ONE... possibly a classic album, brings up the new krs and buck shot album to mind actually... so yeah.. this shit is great, their first verse each really got me hooked, i swear those two verses must of been freestyled, and if not they captured the style of a freestyle .... either way it's most enjoyable in my opinion.

i did not make these(i'm posting them because i know they are useful in many ways, not so much as typical instrumentals, but look at them like sample records) so please direct all your pent up hate towards something else because i will only laugh at you:(

names have been changed to protect the innocent links:

i present to you: the blue tint 3 instrumentals

so this is ironically not my style, but i must admit there are loops in these that can be used(and some are sonically perfect) and single shots galore... aside from the tiny-ness that can't be saved or overshadowed like a diy acapella can. THESE ARE HOMEMADE INSTRUMENTALS using phasing techniques and noise cancellation and probably a few different vst' in the past i thought hey why not use the same techniques i use on acapellas to make instrumentals too, BUT I OPTED NOT TO because a imperfect diy acapella can sound fine when placed on a beat but a imperfect diy instrumental can not be "fixed" by placing an acapella on it... so yeah i think it's to much for to little but that's just me. milling aroung other sites on the web i know people want this and have found mostly dead links. so for those that appreciate it, your welcome, and to those that are gonna cry and bitch about it

click here to get part 1

click here to get part 2

there are 15 tracks. i'm sure the originals will be released at some point along with the acapellas like this artist does for all his major records. so look forward to that.

also check this out and add it to your websites to help get it started.


i've seen places for pirated software. vst' plug ins etc. but never a blogspot dedicated to FREEware and trial software.. SO i started it. and trust me some of the best software and most powerful IS FREE.

(EDIT: now the new blog spot will house, book, movie and music reviews/recommendations too..)
there are many posts already, and if your interested in being a contributor then hit me up at acapellaarchives. specifically looking for someone to contribute free and useful vst' plug ins, i've allready got one certified pc vst
plug in professional that is going to contribute but the more the merrier.

IF YOU'D LIKE TO DO A LINK EXCHANGE THEN ADD THE BLOGSPOT TO YOUR WEB PAGE/blogspot BLOG ROLL AND LEAVE A COMMENT WITH A LINK TO YOUR SITE, and i will add your page to our blogroll if it's a 'good' site.

NAWLEDGE, you are needed please. we'd like to get a mac user to contribute. drop a comment or email me, email address is at acapellaarchives

"Not to be classified as an ordinary mixtape or producers beat CD, Orchestration is unparalleled.

Created on the premise of an orchestral score, producer REL and DJ Haylow collaborate to bring you a truly unique interpretation of Hip Hop instrumentalism. The Orchestration project contains over 30 instrumentals produced solely by REL, who displays a range in sound that is distinct and can be appreciated by any music aficionado.

DJ Haylow has an extensive mixtape catalog, but he approached this assignment from an unfamiliar angle. Playing the role as the "conductor", Haylow blends, tweaks, and manipulates REL's production to give the Orchestration project a cohesive refinement that is worthy of it's own musical genre. "

With REL as the arranger and DJ Haylow as the conductor, Orchestration is the contemporary model for Hip Hop instrumentation."

Blast From The Past!

What's Up Fam!?!? Nawledge here, back in effect with this post after finishin up with the CRAZIEST ROAD TRIP OF LIFE! That's the reason for my lack of presence over here during the past 2 Months. Started in LA right after July 4th for a good friend's Wedding, then on to Sacramento/San Francisco/Portland/Gov. Camp Mt. Hood Oregon for some summer riding/Seattle/Vancouver BC/then back home to Salt Lake, 2 Months later... Spent about $3,000 & destroyed the Liver every night. FUCKIN EPIC TRIP! I had this crazy old Polaroid & some expired film the whole time, took some bangin shots & put 'em in this slideshow. Thought some of y'all that like Photography might want to check it out.

But before that let me just say that I've noticed a few heads in the CBox asking where I've been, & missing my posts & shit. I want you to know, those FEW comments get me Really amped on wanting to keep going with this Blog stuff. It is a lot of work, & we do it for the love, so its REALLY dope to see even just a few people that are asking about where I've been, and where my posts had gone. Basically helped me confirm that I'm actually doin this for a reason. Thanks for those comments people! For Real... Alright, enough about me & where I've been at. Here we go:

I figure it's been a while since my last post, so I wanted to do somethin a little special/different with this one. For a while, I've been thinkin about my Favorite "Top 10" Instrumental albums, and was going to do a Top 10 post. But then realized that I kind of separate my Instrumentals into 2 different Genres now: New & Old. So, I'm going to break it down like that, & I tossed up 10 of my favorite beats from my favorite albums growing up into this Mix, The Classics.

This is mainly for discussion, as I'm sure most of you have all the beats already. But I'd like to hear your agreements/disagreements on my selections, what you think I may have left out, what you would put in, etc... I'm interested to hear what everybody else considers CLASSIC. No tracklist, just expect beats from each album in the picture spread below.

Best Of - The Classics

Cool, then I was thinking, there were a few Artists that were ahead of their time from years back, artists that kind of ushered in the new "Sound" of Instrumental music, helped to kind of "Bridge The Gap" between the Old sound & the New sound. There are only 5 tracks in this one, & they are just random tracks that jumped out at me as having that Future Sound. Especially when they came out. Anyway, you gotta have that middle ground between New & Old, and these represent that pretty good I think.

Best Of - Bridging The Gap

Now on to the New Classics. These are a whole bunch of tracks that I've already posted in the past, all the stuff im currently listening to. These I consider to be Classic already. & I want you to know that these mixes are all tailored to what I used to listen to, or am listening to now. There are a TON of new artists that could go in this mix, & a whole bunch unmentioned that could belong in the Old Classics too. From Lord Finesse & Easy Mo Bee, to Black Milk & Ras G. The list goes on... I'm basically posting the stuff I listen to, & what matters most to me. What you hear is what I hear, New or Old.

Best Of - The New Classics

** This mix does contain 1 New Track that I haven't ever posted. It's from Glen Porter's new album "Falling Down" that dropped on the 28th of Aug. The track is from the 12" Single, it's entitled "Need Itself, Pt.2" EVERYBODY go to iTunes & buy the album, i'm not going to post it. It's 9.99 & it's really, really well done. A great album. Go get it. **


*** So, as I was posting this I realized that I'm pretty sure I forgot to remove the DRM Protection on the Glen Porter track mentioned above, because it was an iTunes purchase. So, here is a DRM Free version that I uploaded to Rapidshare, download this one so you will actually be able to listen to it & have the DRM Free. ***
Glen Porter - Need Itself Pt.2

Next, I was shocked & appalled when I noticed that this album had never been posted here in its entirety. O.C.'s "Word... Life" remains as one of my Best & Favorite Albums ever for Lyrical & Production quality. It's basically entirely produced by Buckwild, so... If you missed out on this album, you're childhood was not complete. Glad to find it & get it posted. I hope all of you enjoy it.

O.C. - "Word... Life" Instrumentals

Alright, on the subject of Blue Sky Black Death & Unreleased shit, I've got this. The Orphan Tape. One half of BSBD, "Kingston" the producer from Seattle, used to go by "The Orphan" as a solo producer. I found some random track that a guy had posted on YouTube, some unreleased BSBD track, & in the comments it said it was from "The Orphan Tape". I asked the dude if he could hook it up with the full tape, & so now I have it for you. It has a few tracks from the BSBD Lost & Unreleased, but it has a whole bunch of other shit too. There is a track called "No Glory" that is highly legit. Enjoy, let us know what you think.

The Orphan - Space Needle Sounds

This one is just something I grabbed from HHB a bit back. But I remember we posted his 1st album up a while ago, and people seemed to like it. So, got this one for y'all. It has some cool shit on it, some really hard hitting bass & drums on some tracks. Enjoy.

Metaform - Beats From The Crypt

I noticed a request for this in the CBox a few days back, so here you go... There aren't any voice-over tag shit on this one. It is way easier to listen to & there are some definite bangers on the album. You can't argue with the fact that he can make some dope beats for being so young. Let's not BLOW UP on this one huh? Usually when a Cloud album gets posted up I tend to see 9,000 random negative comments flyin all over the place, & that shit is pointless. Anybody that makes something that you can nod your head to, deserves our respect. I like this dude & his beats, so lets try & keep the comments somewhat partially on the positive side people. Thanks.

Cloud - Self Law

And finally, I must mention the entity that is MEXICANS WITH GUNS!!! I've been meaning to do a main post on the man, but he doesn't really fall into the "Instrumental" side of things, 2 of these tracks are Instrumentals. So, I REALLY like this shit, I don't know how a lot of you will feel it, but I really dig it. MWG is a side-project from Ernest Gonzales, & im pretty sure that Ernest is such a musically diverse fellow that he is making so many tracks that sound so different, he has to create multiple aliases to agree with that particular sound of music. MWG is basically a remix producer, that's what I call it. He basically just flips the track a little bit, adds some bangin synth sounds & hard hits, and when he's done doing his thing, the result is a definite club banger from what was once a track that may not even belong in the club in the first place. Take my favorite version, The Faunts track, "Feel Love Thinking Of", listen to the original version somewhere on YouTube, then listen to the flip on this mix. That's what im talkin about, perfect display, & I can't wait to hear more... I see big things happening for Ernest Gonzales in the future, & all of his aliases. Keep doing your thing, because I like the sound.

Mexicans With Guns - My Top 6

Alright, just about done here lacing your dome with that new Crack. I'm gonna leave you with 2 diverse tracks that I have been feeling a lot lately. Found the first 1 from Scott Hansen's (Tycho) Blog, & the other Dub track I just came across in a random folder somewhere. I don't know anything about it. Some Electro, & some Drums. ENJOY.

Siriusmo - "High Together"

Roberto Torres & Bill Laswell - "Cien Fuegos Dub"

Alright, that's it for this go around. Glad to be back, had an ALL TIME Summer & cant wait for the seasons to change, along with the Blog. Lets keep it going to 2010 People!!! PEACE.
