Not your ordinary

I've been searching all morning for a Youtube clip but it looks like it was made private. The video is titled "mpc quickie" and it's just a guy filming his MPC while the illest beat plays in the background. The person behind the beat and the video is none other than Damu the Fudgemunk. I had been checking for this dude ever since I saw that clip and luckily I wasn't the only one. Most of you by now will know him has one half of Y Society along with MC/DJ/Producer Insight. They just released their debut album Travel At Your Own Pace on Tres Records and needless to say, you need it in your life.
I happened to come across a free album of unreleased beats on the People Under the Stairs website and thought I'd share it with everybody. There's more than a few facemelters in here. I hate to compare people, but for fans of golden era Pete Rock this is as close as you're gonna get.

Thanks for the recommendation. I've never even heard of this cat, and he's right up my alley. Very, very dope beats.

You can really hear the K-Def, Diamond D, and Pete Rock influences shinin' through. I picked up that Y Society record as well and was equally impressed. Tres Records is killin' it right now! Did you hear that DJ Alibi record? DAMN. Solid.
