It’s time for another Producer’s Spotlight and this time we are going more domestic than imported. IMAKEMADBEATS is the first producer from the United States to be featured in this segment and we are really proud to showcase his talents on HHD. He’s worked with some incredibly talented artists but some of his best work can be featured on MidaZ the Beast’s new album, AU: Another Universe. Definitely make sure you check that release out if you have not already. You should also check out IMAKEMADBEATS’ Daylight/Nightlight EPs.
I just gave a thorough listen to MidaZ’s new album, AU: Another Universe, and it’s a contender folks. The album has a lot of bangers but also a lot of substance for you to sink your ears into. It’s out now and I think you should cop it early to show your support. As for this song, we have IMAKEMADBEATS on the production side of things and MidaZ essentially doing a press conference on what his music is going to be like. It’s almost like a synopsis of this album. I’ll let him tell it:
…Instead I’ll put out an album that’s really strong / Cater to the few and tell the many to suck my Jimmy Long….
Fire, from MidaZ the Beast and Roc Marciano is given the remix treatment by accomplished beatsmith, IMAKEMADBEATS. IMAKEMADBEATS give this track a touch of playful sadsim. (How did you like that? Playful sadism…I said it) It’s dark, banging, yet intriguing and interesting. This may be one of my favorite beats from 2013. Really feeling it. AU, MidaZ’s album, is dropping in two weeks. Highly anticipated.
I am really waiting on K-Hill’s new EP, Achilles’ Hill, and the forthcoming album by the same title in the summer. This track is a combination of soulful instrumentation and vocal samples with K-Hill’s authoritative boom-bap delivery. K-Hill just has that voice that sticks with you. There is also a bonus remix to be downloaded by IMAKEMADBEATS. The EP drops on February 26th.
Wow. What a nice surprise this was! I own most of these jawns from Critical, but to see them all in once place is impressive. The man has put in work, and this project puts that into perspective. Critical is a very talented emcee on the Creative Juices roster and has an album dropping later this year entitled, Electrical Tape. My favorite joints are his collaborations with Little Vic which are done under the monniker, Hidden Agenda.
Check this mixtape out. You are bound to find some interesting gems.

This project was released in conjunction with the sister project, The Daylight EP, that featured Butta Verses. Both of the projects are a prelude to IMAKEMADBEATS’ self-titled album which is dropping, next week on January 18th. I didn’t comment on the Daylight project mostly because I was involved in the end of the year business but I also must say that I prefer the darker side of things.
The beats on this project are grimey and MidaZ is the perfect emcee to rip over these tracks. He has the voice, flow, and delivery to turn these dope instrumentals into hip hop gold.
