Groove Food :: Ben Buck Beatbox Blasts Listeners With ‘WHATABANGER’

For the unfamiliar or uninitiated, Whataburger is a Texas institution.  Most anybody from Texas will give you a detailed account of their love for the fast food chain, if given the chance, so it makes complete sense that the homie Ben Buck would dedicate a bit of his beatsmith prowess to WHATABANGER, an unofficial sonic ode to the fast food giant.  The production more than lives up to the banger expectation set in the title, and for good measure, Ben Buck throws in every burger-related vocal sample that you could imagine.  If you’re looking for some good beats to keep your head nodding, then look no further than this collection… cop it if you’ve got a few bucks to spare, and share it with all of the other Whataburger lovers you know so that we can all celebrate together!

Traveling Band :: Breaking Even Crew Makes More Magic With ‘Dang ‘OL EP’

artworks-000589941524-p7frnx-t500x500

This past summer, the Breaking Even Crew embarked on a multi-state tour simply for the sake of spreading the word about their brand of hip-hop in the ‘old-fashioned’ way.  The crew, consisting of MC/DJ Cold SweatManny PhestoBen Buck Beatbox and Jantzonia, decided to cap off the tour with another classic move : dropping a collective project.  The Dang ‘OL EP, like a handful of other recent projects out of Austin, embraces a feel not present in hip-hop since the ‘gold school’ era of the early to mid-1990s, with vibrant and bolstering production large enough to handle the range and variety that the collective brings to the table.  For four tracks, there is more than enough to chew on, which is a testament to the skill of all involved.  Here’s to hoping that the winter produces a follow-up project of some sort, but in the meantime, pass this one around so others can enjoy it!
