OMNISCENCE - Raw Factor 2.0 (Vinyl)

Hopefully some of you are familiar with North Carolina MC Omniscence – be it for his debut on the classic compilation ‘Back to the Lab’ (recently reissued by Dope Folks Records), his impossible-to-find debut EP ‘The Funky One Liner’, or his excellent singles on EastWest/Elektra ‘Amazin’ (awarded 'Hip Hop Quotable' in the Source October 1995) and ‘Touch Y’all’ (1996).  Despite recording a full-length debut entitled The Raw Factor for EastWest, the record never came out and even now remains mostly unheard.

Fast forward to 2012, and I am really pleased to be involved in releasing Omniscence’s first new vinyl release since way back in 1996.  Entitled Raw Factor 2.0, the new single finds Omniscence picking up where he left off - kicking flavourful verses with his distinctive voice intact.  I produced, mixed and provided cuts on the track (and the remix version on the flip), and am also self-releasing the record on limited 7” vinyl.  Preview both versions of the track above...

The wax is limited to 300 copies – 150 copies on white vinyl and 150 copies on transparent blue vinyl.  The record comes in a full-colour picture sleeve (the record is in a paper inner sleeve within the cover, and the whole thing is in a plastic dust jacket for extra protection.)

This is NOT a pre-order: the records are in my hands and will be posted to you from Melbourne within 24 hours of receiving your order – please purchase from the store:

Prices are as follows:

1 copy (your choice of colour, blue or white): $13 (+$6 postage worldwide / $3 within Australia)
2 copies (1x blue, 1x white): $23 (+$8 postage worldwide / $4 within Australia.)

If you have any special requests please just leave me a note when you checkout.  I send all records as gifts so that international customers should not need to pay customs.

EVERY order comes with a FREE digital version of the release, including instrumental versions for both songs (these aren’t on the vinyl.)  While stocks last, every double pack comes with a free Debonair Blends mix CD.

I hope you enjoy the record as much as I enjoyed working on it.  Naturally, extra props to Omniscence for being involved in the project.  As always, thanks for listening!

Debonair P - Debonair Blends 7 Megamix (2011)

First up, thanks everyone who picked up the Global Platoon 'G8 Summit' EP, all the feedback I've received on this release has been great!  It's been a while since I posted up a megamix... as a challenge to myself, I tried my hand at making a mix using only tracks from 2000 onward (well, there are a couple of joints from '99.)  A lot of the tracks on this megamix are personal faves from the past years, often overlooked, so hopefully you hear something new on this one.

[S2S016] - Global Platoon 'G8 Summit' (Vinyl / Tape) - OUT NOW

This is a heads up that I have a new release available on wax and cassette.  The ‘G8 Summit’ EP features the Baltimore crew Global Platoon, consisting of M.I. (Constant Deviants), Fla Fla (Sparrow the Movement), Steve Colossal, Bosch, Supreme and Rome – in addition to dropping 2 excellent singles as a group in 1997 (‘Crew Family b/w Keep Your Day Job’ and ‘Streets of Gold’), individually they are responsible for a bunch of essential independent records from the mid-90's era - you can check many of these out at the end of this post.

‘G8 Summit’ is available now on purple vinyl with a sticker cover (featuring 8 tracks, limited to 300 copies) and purple cassette (featuring 16 (!) tracks, extremely limited to only 75 copies.)  I produced and mixed all songs, in addition to providing all the cuts.  You can preview several tracks below: 

Here are the ordering details for the release:

Outside Australia: Please order directly from Six2Six Records in Baltimore, as they can ship cheaper to most places than I can, especially if you are buying a few items.  They have a small quantity of my previous release with M.I. ‘The Allnighter’ EP and some excellent archive releases from underrated Baltimore groups like WolfeDOM Nation, New Testament and SCU.  You can buy all this good stuff here:

In Australia: I have a small number of copies on wax, and an even smaller quantity on cassette – I’m sold out of my previous records on Six2Six so don’t sleep.  Buy them both from the Gentleman’s Relief store here:

Regardless of where you buy them from, everything is in stock and ready to ship now.  Many thanks as always to those of you who support these releases and make them possible!  Shout outs to Six2Six and of course Global Platoon for having me involved on the project.

Debonair P + Global Platoon = G8 Summit (Vinyl / Cassette)

I'm pleased to announce a new release I produced and mixed that will be dropping very soon on vinyl and cassette.  The 'G8 Summit' EP features the Baltimore crew Global Platoon consisting of M.I. (Constant Deviants), Fla Fla (Sparrow the Movement), Steve Colossal, Supreme, Rome and Bosch.  I really enjoyed working on the project and the test presses for the wax sound extra nice.  You can preview several songs off the release below - I'll be posting up ordering details when they are available.

Thanks as always to those who support!

Debonair P + MI (Constant Deviants) = The Allnighter EP (Vinyl)

Hi Guys,

A quick heads up that I a new piece of vinyl I produced is available for pre-order.  The record is called ‘The Allnighter’ and on vocals features M.I. who I am sure many of you would know from his work as the MC from Constant Deviants (‘Competition Catch Speed Knots’, ‘Problem Child’, Concrete Utopia LP etc.)  The vinyl is limited to 300 copies on gold (well, it came out more like orange) vinyl in a plain sleeve and features 5 tracks.

Listen to the snippets now:

Exclusive to the wax is instrumental versions of all 5 songs.  The price for this release is $20 (+ shipping) and I have listed the ordering information below:

To Order:

Outside Australia... please order directly from:  
Just click ‘Pre-Order Now’ and select the number of records you need, you can edit your country by clicking ‘United States’ to update the shipping costs.  

Inside Australia… I will have a small number of copies to sell at the same price ($20) which you can get directly from me to save on the international postage costs.  You can pre-order via my store here and I’ll send a notification when the wax reaches Australia and has been posted out to you. The vinyl is currently in transit from the US and is expected to reach me in mid-April.

Many thanks to those of you who pick up this record and continue to make releases like this possible.  I always welcome feedback, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about ordering etc.  I really enjoyed working on this record and I hope you dig it also.

Debonair P - Hydrabeats Megamix (2011)

Hey all,

Happy new year!  Big thanks to everyone who supported us in 2011.

I thought I would kick things off for 2012 with this mix I put together a few months back compiling my favourite 80 beats from the Hydrabeats series of instrumental records.  14 Hydrabeats records were released around 1997 on Hydra Entertainment, featuring instrumentals from producers such as Godfather Don, The Beatnuts, Nick Wiz, Ghetto Professionals, E-Boogie, A Kid Called Roots, The Unsociables etc.  While the tracklist is based purely on personal taste, I did try to include at least a couple of tracks from each of the 14 records in the series - hopefully the mix should provide a nice overview of the whole series.
