Ladies and Gentlemen, Cats and Dogs, Friends and Foes, Bitches and Hoes,
Welcome to the first installment of Spreaducation.
My name is Spread and I will be your host. My homie Stak and I have been gathering nuggets of music, wisdom and greatness to put on display for you and the rest of the world here in our virtual palace of fine arts.
In all honesty, I’d mostly like to use this platform to expose the world to my music, Stak’s music, and the timeless hip hop sounds of our group Slick Shoes. But I’d also like to share the music of many of my other friends who I’ve had the privilege of growing up with and playing with.
In this climate of disposable arts, I feel that it would be a travesty if the rest of the world never knew about musicians like my good friend Jeremy Radway, who plays everything better than everyone and makes great music like this. He resides in London and you should definitely check out his band Player Piano if you are ever out that way.
Another of my Naptown brethren is “Dam Rite” aka Devon Ashley. He is well-known for his live drum work with bands like The Pieces, The Lemonheads, and “F. U. Z. Z.” He is also a masterful producer and musical director. As a matter of fact, he just produced this jammin’ album with my good friend Kate Lamont, an incredible singer who I have had the pleasure of playing with. I even did this remix for her recently.
Speaking of Kate, my long-time homie TJ Reynolds made this incredible video for her recently. TJ is also nice on the beats and on the mic and is one-third of my other hip-hop group The Philosophy. Be on the lookout for a new EP from us in the near future. TJ’s solo stuff is pretty fresh too, as you can see in this video, which was made by another Naptown homie Ben Kahlil Rose. TJ’s talented sister, Teresa Reynolds, also just put out an album called State of Mind.
Ok…enough with the plug-fest…
We will also be coming with exclusive goodies at Just Due . Every week or so I will be dropping our Just Due Beat Mixes like THIS one. Be on the lookout for our next installments, to be mixed by different hand-picked DJs. You should also peep my mixcloud site for new and old DJ mixes.
Coming soon, we will have an advice and opinion page, more music from a large network of artists, tips on recording/playing/rapping/DJing/being a bad motherfucker, and much much more!
So go ahead click us up and down. We won’t say “stop.”
