What happens when one of the most consistent and proficient Austin producers combines forces with another one of Austin‘s most prolific MC/producers? The most recent example of this phenomenon would be The Marquee EP, a seven song collection featuring BoomBaptist on beats and Ben Buck on bars. Buck has always had a knack for the roughneck approach to hip-hop with gritty, grimy production heavily influenced by the 1990s “True School” approach to hip-hop, so it’s a nice change of pace to hear him over Boom‘s production, which matches intensity in terms of drum sounds but has a flourish and glamour that sits on the opposite end of the spectrum. This project definitely plays like a victory lap of sorts, and with the latest batch of output the duo has put out on their own, there’s nothing wrong with Boom and Buck pairing up for some good times. Check this one out wherever you stream music or buy it digitally, and make sure your people do the same.
Butcher Bear and the rest of the homies over at (iN)Sect Records can break down what Grosero, the upcoming project by VÄMPS, is all about much better than I can. If you’re curious, then hop on over to the Bandcamp page in the links above and give the bio and breakdown a quick rundown. Funny thing is, by the time you’re done reading, you would have likely already listened to the three brief but powerful singles currently available, perhaps a couple of times over. For the impatient or those lacking enough focus to read a few paragraphs, Grosero is VÄMPS giving you bite-sized doses of rawness over his own production, blending an East Coast-rooted sound with a Southern approach and aesthetic. Don’t sleep on the singles available now, and definitely don’t sleep when the whole thing drops.
Looking Back :: (iN)Sect Records Celebrates A Decade With House Shoes Mix ‘The First 10 Years Of The iN’
If you’re already down with (iN)Sect Records, then you know about the impressive list of achievements and accomplishments, including (but not limited to) : the wildly successful Exploded Drawing events; a roster split between extremely creative, forward-thinking locals and legendary talent from around the states; a long history of projects released digitally, on cassette and on vinyl; and, most importantly, a decade strong in the game. In order to celebrate this hallmark, the label tapped roster member House Shoes to do a mix dedicated to the label, and House Shoes went above and beyond for The First 10 Years Of The iN. If one ever had doubts about the variety of sounds, diversity of roster, or sheer volume of talent within the (iN)Sect Records camp, this mix should soundly put those doubts to rest. It’s free to download, free to stream, and free to share, so do all of that, and be there for 20 years, 30 years and so on!
(iN)Sect Records is shaping itself up for a promising 2021. Dig what they’ve got going on with a promising young new duo, The Point :
“The Point are a duo of multi-instrumentalists/producers from Austin, Texas. They began playing music together when they were in 7th grade, and started making beats when they went to high school, which they just graduated from. They both play virtually every instrument. Joe Roddy, 18, covers trumpet, keys, guitar and vocals, while Jack Montesinos, 19, covers upright and electric bass, guitar, vocals, percussion and both handle all of the production. They have gone through genres that span jazz fusion, hip hop, trap, country, and polka, all inspired by our southern roots. They’ve opened up for Jimmie Vaughn, Kamasi Washington, Gary Clark, Jr. and Barbara Lynn and have been featured on CBS This Morning.
“PHONKADELIC” came together out of them listening to Texas artists such as UGK, Freddie King, George Strait, DJ Screw and and many others. They took those influences and tried to make a short and sweet project bringing them all together. This album is not only Texas trap beats, but also features elements of country, RNB and blues. Made entirely with samplers and live instruments played by Jack & Joe, mixed by them with GarageBand and their phones. If you rep the Lone Star state, bump this in your whip.”
All facts, so don’t sleep.
Last week (as previously mentioned), (iN)Sect Records promised a trilogy of new releases, two of which have already been covered here. The third of these projects, the debut album Post-Love from artist Rob from Garden Street, is one of the strongest debuts made on the label. Rob‘s drums almost immediately jump out and grab you with their Dilla-esque swing, which plays well against the chiptune-ish sound implemented (though Rob finds a way to not have the chiptune elements come off as gimmicky). The sequencing of this album is nearly perfect, as each track flows from one to the next with the precision of an assembly line while remaining distinct. What really grabs me about the production on this album, however, is how lush it is. Words really don’t do this one justice, so definitely jump into a listen as soon as possible, download and donate if you can, and share it around so others can do the same.
Austin never fails to impress me with the sheer range and variety of producers and beatmakers that reside in the area. No matter what your taste is, someone is definitely making tracks that will speak to your sensibilities. If you’re a fan of slightly glitchy, wonderfully off-kilter tracks that warp samples into new elements that are interwoven together intricately, then Warm Star most certainly has you covered. On (mixtape)*, Warm Star hits us with a dose of Prefuse73-esque vibes over two tracks that had me in the zone, for real. Definitely looking forward to hearing more from (and possibly collaborating with) Warm Star in the future, but for not, you should jump on this while you can… and if you can donate a buck or two, you should.
After a two year span of personal growth and focus on film, Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice has returned to his music-making roots with the latest beat tape (for lack of a better word), This Town Has Turned To Dust. The project was inspired by a Rod Serling episode of Playhouse 90 with a nearly similar name that focused on the fallout of the Emmitt Till lynching. The album itself is meant to flow similar to the film Waking Life, using production by Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice in tandem with a litany of film samples to give the impression of floating from one train of thought to the next. The project is not only deeply personal (almost as much as the upcoming rap release A Memoir Called Noir), it also serves as a defined signpost (no pun intended) for the transition between music and film that Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice is undergoing currently. Check it out at Bandcamp or any of your other favorite online outlets, as it is available in every streaming service or digital storefront, and be sure to tell your friends to do the same.

I am so glad to be a part of this compilation. Many of my good producer friends are on here as well, and there are many more producers from all over the world. Close to an hour and a half of music, this is a MUST HAVE compilation, and I’m not just saying that because I’m on it. Download, listen, share, repeat.
