Blunted Astronaut: BAR-7-OG-0003 ft. Dirty Treats

With a view to making an album of their collaborations with emcees and friends, Dirty Treats decided on finding distribution for their work and started to produce beats together. Anyone of them, at anytime, coming up with a loop, chop, break, drum sound or other nucleus and then layering sounds and arranging together with the scratches going in last.

For "Originally Original" Praverb took a little longer than usual, and DT got into some other beats. When the acapellas eventually made it across the Atlantic, Hairy was already bored of the samples and with Treats pushing for a full make over, he was very enthusiastic pulling in the majority of the sounds, pianos, horns, and vocal snippets. They redid the whole track with a new arrangement, keeping the original drums.

"Everything Is Broken" was made when Dirty Treats combined and set up all of their equipment, they realized a lot of repair work was needed to be done to their main tools. Mpc faders and floppy drives broke, screens needed replacing, the custom built 40GB PC computer kept crashing and one monitor speaker had a broken tweeter. Basically, there was a lot to stunt creativity. Dirty Treats contributed some real nice melodies which you hear on this track beyond the loop, in the form of horns and vocal samples, and Hairy finally laced the cuts. Lady of Rage is one of the lines scratched, where she spits on DJ Premier's "Unfucwitable". Praverb spits the lyrics and his verses concentrate on witty observations on the current state of Hip-Hop culture and our ailing society.
