King Of The Beats: ft. Moe Love

DJ Moe Love is bringing the true UltraMagnetic sound with the Diggin In The Tapes release "I Ain't Dead Yet". In the 80's on the "nine" block on Washington Avenue in the south Bronx at hiscousins Patrick and Cedric "Ced-Gee" Miller's house aka Ultra-Lab, is where Moe Love found his calling as a beat digger, DJ and Producer. Simultaneously he watched the formation of KRS-One and Scott La Rock go from the Celebrity Three to Boogie Down Productions, to aligning with Kool Keith, Ced-Gee, T.R. Love and Original Ronnie T to form UltraMagnetic MC's. 

Moe Love's early passion for record digging helped shape the UltraMagnetic sound with sample chops and mastery of the SP1200. Moe Love's sound can be heard on many classics from UltraMagnetic MC'S, Tim Dog, King Tee, BeastieBoys, Dr. Dooom, Slaughter House Cartel, Tricky, Demagogue and the Prodigy,

The album picks up where the UltraMagnetic MC's Four Horsemen album left off - a collection of unheard SP1200 recordings plus Moe Love's classic rugged scratches, cuts and left field sounds over hard concrete drums. This album is a journey from the silver wall papered Ultra Lab days in the Bronx to his Forte Greene Brooklyn park jam experiences.

Colored vinyl pressing limited to 300 copies only.

Legion / Fat Beats: LGR001 / LGR002 ft. The Legion

The Legion consists of the Bronx trio Cee Low, Molecules and Chucky Smash. "Everything about us is old school," says Chucky. The Legion's debut and only album "Theme + Echo = Krill" was released as Mercury promo in 1994. 

Name it a re-press or first official release, Fat Beats is about to drop the album with picture cover and bonus 7". 

Yes, you can be old school hardcore, slammin' and brand new all at the same time. They've been like this since junior high. New rappers gotta come out with new designer cloths ... but the Legion is not going for it. If you like hip-hop all about rhyming, skills, music, flow and flavor, then you'll enjoy The Legion. 

Fat Beats offers an orange colored vinyl LP bundled with a red 7" single of Jingle Jangle b/w Legion Groove.
