about

Kent Williams -

First met ill’Scott at a party at walterwarm’s pad for beatboxbandits’ birthday. Dude walked in with a grip of break records, and at the time my drum library was weak. I was blown away by the dude’s knowledge of records, which he let me borrow on the spot for sampling. Scottie only had two turntables at the time and was looking to buy his first sampler. I had him by to show him my 2000xl and the SP404 combo, and immediately I could tell he was going to pick it up quick. Not too long after that he had picked both and we started making beats after work till about 2AM most nights.

Fortunately we were about a 15 minute drive from cowode, BBB, and walterwarm at the time, and each cat had a different setup and we could hang out and watch them work. At this point in time it was a bit of an arms race for me, had to cop every sampler that gave that classic feel.
Scottie was right there with me, and picked up just about every piece of gear I added to the mix. We both learned a lot hanging out making beats, and learned these machines together. Just over a year ago we both decided it was time to collab and deliver a full tape of some old
school 90’s inspired shit.

Like most producers we have some beliefs bout sampling, and feel that youtube is cheating. Most folks these days don’t put in the time to learn a piece of hardware, and miss out on the experience of finding that golden sample randomly in some cruddy dollar bin somewhere. We are proud to say that we are all vinyl, except for the occasional interview or vocal stab. With a nod to the golden era of hiphop and its birth place. Golden Coast is a tribute to our favourite local kick it spots all over the Golden Coast of California. Whether it be driving on a rainy day, hitting the slopes for a day of skiing, kicking back and getting some work done, or a cypher with the homies. These beats are for you.

Shout Out to BBB, walterwarm, and cowode.
Thank you Tomcat and Acorn for the opportunity.
